on the NW side of the island and streches from one bay accross the field
to another one near monastery. Kampor is a quiet and family friendly area
(car an advantage due to avarage local transport). In the vicinity there
are several restaurants.

pizzeria's, shop, diving centre.
The place derives its name
from latin 'campus' meaning field. Kampor is, as a village, relatively
big in the island's criterion as it is spread on a bigger area. The
Kampor area consist of a Forest/
Nature park Kalifront ( where you can come across a dear or buck, if
you are lucky), a tourist village in woody Suha Punta, a long shallow
sandy beach in the Kampor bay next to the old village, a fertile valley
and the area around St. Eufemia bay with the franciscan monastery.
Kampor used to be a traditional
fisherman's and peasants village before it got developed through tourism.
Today it is popular
place with tourist that like nature and with divers.
