Sithonia is the second peninsula of Halkidiki. Sithonia lays between Gulf of Kassandra (Toroneos gulf) and Gulf of Agion Oros (Sigitikos gulf) and ends with Cape Drepano.
Sithonia is mainly a mountanous area with beautiful pine forests. The highest point of Sithonia is Itamos mountain (the height is 811 meters above sea level).
Admirable beaches with white sand, blue gulfs, picturesque bays, hills, crystal clear warm sea, gloss grey rocks, evergreen pines – all these are the main elements of Sithonia.
Sithonia in distinction from cosmopolitan and crowded Kassandra suggests a more quite holiday in nature’s lap and the most exotic lonely beaches all over Aegean sea.
