Nikiti

Nikiti has definitely been one of the most popular summer resorts in Greece lately and the perfect starting point for getting to know Sithonia and its beautiful beaches.

In the ancient times of Greece, a large number of smaller settlements were established on this location. Probably the most important settlement was Galipsos, which was located south of the present-day city of Nikiti. That settlement was soon destroyed by the Persians. Sometime in the 13th century, the present-day city of Nikiti was founded.

Today Nikiti has more than 3,000 inhabitants, mostly engaged in tourism and beekeeping (try the honey there-it’s amazing!). Traditionally, Nikiti has been the center of honey sales throughout Europe for the last 500 years, and you can find proof of that at the local market every Friday from 8:30 to 13:00.

Municipal unit and municipality of Sithonia.

The Nikiti beach is almost 3 km long, in one part it is sandy, and in the other there are small pebbles. Even during the busiest summer months, you don’t have to worry about crowds, because the beach is quite spacious and you will find a free place very easily.

The beach is clean and the sea calm but unfortunately, you will not find natural shade here. However you can always rent a set of deck chairs and a parasol with two purchased drinks at a nearby beach bar.

A swimming marathon,  starting in Kassandra and ending in Sithonia in Nikiti, is held every June. It is an international marathon and competitors swim about 26km across Toroneos Bay.

Basilica of Sofronios

Built in the 5th century AD, one of the oldest churches in Macedonia. It is worth visiting because the floor decorated with mosaics is literally intact. There aren’t too many visitors here and it is probably one of the least visited attractions in Nikiti.

Old Town

The old part of the city is still inhabited. If you drink coffee in the old square, you will get a feeling of what life here was like 100 years ago. In the center of the city is the church of St. Nikita, built in 1867.
