A hamlet on the Aegean side of Pelion set on a little protected inlet which offered itself as an ideally situated port for the north-eastern region. It is connected with Tsangarada and Mouresi by mule-tracks winding their way through olive groves at first and chestnut forests later. Until a few decades ago all trade in the area was transported by a mule train that ended in and started from Damouhari.

With the opening of roads and the advent of the motor vehicle Damouhari lost importance as a trading port, but gained prominence as a miniature seaside resort that offers the lucky visitors a home far from the grind of urban life -- a step back to the quiet serenity of nature and simple life. Damouhari preserves its pristine character.

If the visitor approaches Damouchari by road he will miss most of the mystique of this hamlet. The magical approach is made either by sea or on foot from Tsangarada along the steep cobbled mule-track, which is masterfully etched into the edge of the sheer cliff. Then and only then will the hiker have a bird's eye view of Damouhari, namely two horseshoe-shaped inlets separated by a narrow tongue of land on which still stand the ruins of an old castle that kept watch over ships and people. One of the inlets is the harbour, proud of the brightly coloured fishing boats and the occasional yacht bobbing on the gentle waves. The other is a spectacular, primitive, small beach resplendent in its dazzling white pebbles and turquoise water. At its uninhabited end stands the gaping mouth of the steeply walled gorge between Tsangarada and Mouresi, rocky and verdant, forbidding and luring, waiting to engulf the daring explorer who likes discovery and adventure.
