Beach Bar
“Beach bar. Better for couples or friends, not so good for families because of the loud music. Fantastic for going there by day and never stop party until late!!!! ”

“Trani Amoudia Beach is one of the best beaches in Sitonia and it is situated nearby Ormos Panagias. Turquoise, crystal clear waters and smooth sand with more enough space to put your parasols and towels are expecting you! There are a lot of cafe near the beach where you can order your drinks! On the northern end of the beach there is a small cape where you can find the remainings of an old Byzathium tower. Archaeologists believe that it used to be the location of the Antique town Sigos. The only tiny disadvantage is the lack of natural shade, so bring your umbrella! Mount Athos Cruises depart from Ormos Panagias. Find more information on Athos Sea Cruises.”

Restaurant
“$$$ The restaurant is located 15 minutes driving towards N. Marmaras. You can enjoy traditional Greek food focused on big seafood selection with daily specials. With stunning views of the Toronaios Golf, big portions of food and many awards it's considered a hidden gem. Make sure you book before you visit as it gets very busy on July - August! ”

Natural Feature
“Kalogria Beach, located in about 5km south of Nikiti, is a wonderful, very popular beach that sits amidst the lush pine forests. Having a length of about 500m, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Halkidiki due to the clear turquoise blue water, fine soft sand and green hills covering the back of the beach. The sea is mostly very shallow, so it is ideal for families with children, but also for those who like to float on an air mattress! The rock has excellent snorkeling and don’t be surprised to see many novices learning how to dive. You can lie down on the hotel sunbeds at either end of the beach, or you can bring your own. A couple of nice taverns and bars that sit by the beach offering drinks and snacks. You can also rent water tubes and bananas.”
