KAMPOR:
 

Village Kampor is located 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. 
Village has ambulance, restaurant, 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.

This polyptich of the Vivarini brothers workshop and byzantine icona of the Madona with the child are of the particular artistic and historical value.
