Sithonia

Sithonia is the second peninsula of Halkidiki, located between Kassandra and Mount Athos, and surrounded by the Toronean Gulf to the east and the Singitic Gulf to the west.

From the first moment visitors are captivated by the white sandy beaches and the turquoise water. Above all this, Sithonia provides the perfect scenery of mountain and sea. Sithonia offers a variety of accommodation facilities and it is well-known for the beautiful beaches such as Marathias, Azapiko, Korakas, Kriaritsi, Kalamitsi, Tristinika. One of the luxurious resort is Porto Carras in Neos Marmaras. We should also mention Porto Koufo, which is the largest natural harbour in Greece.

The magnificent view, the dream landscapes, the picturesque fishing villages with the island breeze, as well as the examples of local architecture in many traditional villages, “tie up” with the wonderful natural environment.
