Eastern Pelion is full of tradition, history and enchanting pictures. We could say that the whole area of Eastern Pelion is "worth seeing" but there are some special sights that a visitor must see when he comes to Pelion.
Damouchari is a small, picturesque and quiet village, consisting of two small bays that are connected by a peninsula on which there are ruins of a castle. The North Bay is a harbor with taverns and houses. The South bay has a beautiful beach full of white pebbles and crystal clear waters, which in combination with the neighboring canyon give Damouhari a wild beauty. You can walk to the picturesque paved cobbled streets within the settlement, as well as to the one that starts for Tsagarada, overlooking the deep blue Aegean Sea. From the northern side of Damouchari, you will find the path leading to the beautiful beach of Papa Nero.
It is worth mentioning that Damouchari was part of the shooting of the Hollywood remix of the movie "Mama Mia" with Meryl Strip in the leading role.
