Nikiti, the old town and the beach

Nikiti is a village located 105 kilometres south-east of Thessaloniki on the Chalkidiki peninsula in Macedonia, Greece. It is the seat of the municipal unit of Sithonia. The village itself acquires a well-preserved old part, while the newer part is located on the seashore, where the beach and newly built marina are also placed. Nikiti possesses a breath-taking view of Toroneos gulf as the old village was built on a hill above the coast. Most houses are built of stone with an excellent architecture. Small squares, cobbled streets and traditional taverns create a beautiful scenery totally harmonized with the surrounding natural landscape.

The old village Nikiti is a charming traditional settlement just across the road from the new part of Nikiti. Here, walking on narrow paved small streets, you can admire the beautiful, restored, stone houses, with the internal courtyyard, laid out by a stone tile and with wooden balconies with flowers. It is possible to walk around old village and then to go down to the new part and to sit in a tavern near the seaside, enjoying traditional cuisine. In Nikiti you can taste the famous honey of Sithonia or buy a jar of honey. You can also search for small shops in order to buy gifts and souvenirs of folk art.
