Sights

The peninsular old town district, Panagia, holds the greatest concentration of sights – principally Ottoman. A 280m-long aqueduct, Kamares, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century and still in beautiful condition, overlooks central Kavala. For swimmable shores, Rapsani Beach, 1.5km west of town, is popular, while young people flock to Batis Beach, a further 3km southwest along the coastal road. For something quieter and more family-friendly, continue for another 2km to Tosca Beach.
