The nearby beaches of Thessaloniki are an ideal destination not only for summer swimming in the sea but also for fine dining. Perea, accessible by the local bus lines of Thessaloniki and the picturesque boats in the summer, is only 23 km away from the city. In the fish taverns you can taste many kinds of fish delicacies as mussel risotto, fried shrimp, octopus, stuffed squid and, of course, fresh fish from the area. Accompany them with raki or ouzo and enjoy the view of the sea. Perea will also satisfy meat eaters as you can find taverns with extensive menu of meats cooked on the grill.
