Kamena Vourla Marina - Fthiotida

The favorable location of the small town of Kamena Vourla on the National Road Athens-Thessaloniki and near large cities like Athens, Lamia etc., along with the unique combination of mountain and sea landscape, named the greater area as a major touristic resort for many years now. In addition, its closeness to important archeological monuments and areas of natural beauty as well as the famous local hot springs, upgraded Kamena Vourla in one of the most significant spa town in Greece.

This touristic bloom created the need for berthing and serving of touristic boats for vacation purposes. Hence, the Prefecture of Fthiotida held a contest, in 1995, for designing and constructing a Marina in Kamena Vourla. Consultant engineer Albert Paul Yamin was responsible for the design of the port facilities, in implementation level and on behalf of the contestant Contracting Company Z. Kyriazis – A. Porfyridis. The study was successfully completed in 1997 and the touristic harbor has already been constructed.
