This will allow you to enjoy scenic views by crossing over olive groves, green pine forests, mountainous landscapes, lakes, rivers, and magnificent coastlines. Also, you will be amazed by the traditional Greek villages, modern cities, ancient ruins, and many elegant Greek orthodox cathedrals.

Toroneos Gulf Cruise

Toroneos Gulf is between Kassandra and Sithonia and is known for its magnificent scenery of the two peninsulas. During a cruise tour, you can visit the isolated beach in Toroni called Aretes which gives a gorgeous view of the ruins of a Byzantine fortress right to the sandy beach. Another stop during the cruise is the island Kelyfos, a graphic tiny paradise with amazing views of the two peninsulas and the Aegean Sea.

Swim at Miti Beach, Possidi

The lighthouse of Possidi, founded in 1864, is an impressive colonial-styled lighthouse with the beautiful Miti beach as its view. The beach is a long sandy strip that splits the sea into two. However, depending on the tide, the form of the beach changes. The beach has soft golden sand and scenery of brilliant blue waves, as well as the lighthouse and a phenomenal green landscape at the back.
