Kallirachi is a big village at the western side of Thassos offering a view of Kavala City. It is 24 km far from Limenas and 2.5km from Skala Kallirahi. It was build in 1750 by the inhabitants of Kakirachi after its destruction from pirates. Its 600 dwellers are occupied with tourism, agriculture and fishery.

Kallirachi has narrow alleys with traditionally built houses where serenity and tranquility dominates. A folk faucet adorns the central square. In the area there are many bridges made of stone while one lane leads to Kakirahi and Metamorfosi.

Visit the folkloric museum of Kallirachi, in a mansion-house dating back from 1800, which has been restored according to the lifestyle of the local people during the past century. The exhibition includes traditional tools, needlework, weaving art and photographs.
