The Pagasitikos Gulf is a round-shaped gulf in the region of Magnesia, with the city of Volos as its main port. The gulf is embraced by Mount Pelion, with an opening to the Aegean Sea. Pelion is an area of incredible beauty – a high mountain with abundant fauna and flora, combined with stunning beaches. The Pagasitikos Gulf is ideal for relaxed sailing, as the sea is relatively calm, with gentle winds that are channelled down from Pelion. Sailing here will give you the opportunity to discover the captivating beauty of its many unspoilt bays, with their teal-coloured waters. Swim in the glimmering waters at Tzasteni or Nies. Taste the local specialities in one of the many pretty seaside villages – Pelion’s speciality (spetzofai) in the delightful Kato Gatzea or Afissos, or crayfish spaghetti in the little fishing village on the island of Trikeri.
