Our tip: In order not to go empty-handed during the peak holiday season, you should reserve your rental car as early as possible, as demand is very high, especially in the summer months.
Whether aqueduct or fortress, you should not miss a trip to the city center of the port city of Kavala, which is only about 30 kilometers away in spring and summer. Spend a few relaxing hours walking around the city, visit the Tobacco Museum or take a look at the exhibits in the Archaeological Museum. Especially in summer a visit to the museum can be a great alternative if the temperatures get too hot during the day. Make sure to take your rental car on a trip to the excavation sites and the amphitheater before continuing on to your final vacation destination in your rental car. Activities outside are especially recommendable in the spring as the temperatures will be warm already but not too hot. Nevertheless, despite the heat, you can explore interesting places in summer, which we have compiled below, because in these places you can enjoy the beaches during the day and explore the cities in the evening.

Port of Kavala in the evening
Fortunately, refueling at Kavala Airport is not a problem, as whether you are heading east or west, you will find a gas station on the access road in each direction. However, you should note that many of the gas stations in Greece are not open 24/7 and prices are a bit more expensive in the immediate vicinity of the airport. It may be worth refueling on your way to the airport in case you need to return your car with a full tank of gas on a fair refueling arrangement.
Thanks to the nearby E90 highway, you can reach the nearest coastal cities and towns to the east and west in no time by rental car. However, if you do not want to pick up your rental car right after your arrival, then you can also reach the city center by bus or by cab, where the bus stop is located right in front of the arrivals hall and tickets can be purchased from the driver. The one-way trip by cab, however, comes with 38 € already a little more expensive, so that a rental car can actually pay off from the first day.
Service is capitalized at Kavala Airport, although the airport with only 200,000 passengers per year is not necessarily one of the largest airports in Greece. Pass the time until departure in one of the duty-free stores and buy some small things or souvenirs, drink a coffee before departure or just use the free internet to send some vacation pictures to friends and acquaintances.
