Olympic Beach marks the central point of the County of Pieria and belongs to the Municipality of Katerini.
The beaches of Paralia and Olympic Beach are one continuous stretch of golden sand, the two communities being linked by a well lit avenue with a bicycle track running alongside and a path for pedestrians wishing to take either a morning or evening stroll.
Situated just 8 kms from Katerini, it is easily reached from The National Motorway E75 (Junctions: Katerini or Korinos) and from the recently completed coastal road from Nea Agathoupoli to Olympic Beach (Katerinoskala). It is also served by the railway from Salonika to Athens (Station: Katerini).
