Sarti is a small place, but it has incredible beaches all around. When you hit the roud from Vourvourou to Sykia, you can find a lot of small and private beaches which are amazing.
One of the beaches is Portokali, small one, but very beautyful.
From Sarti to Hawai beach is 10-11 km. Just follow the signs on the road...Hawai is small quiet beach, if you're tired from people and crowds...Two nice taverns are there, the beaches has sun beds and umbrellas, is perfect, just for relax...
I warmly recommended this beach, I enjoyed there :))
Sarti is situated on the Eastern shores of Sithonia. It was named after the Ancient city of Sarti, probably situated in the same area. The name "SARTI" can be found in the writings of Herodotus. It was visited by Xerxes' expeditionary forces. Ancient Sarti was a member of the Athenian Alliance.
Significant ruins of the ancient city can be found above the gulf of Sykia. It is not known when or why the city was destroyed. During the 14th century, there are reports of a village in the area called "Sarti", belonging to the Monastery of Xenofontos. After 1922 it was inhabited by refugees from Asia Minor.
Today Sarti is a holiday resort that combines the beauty of mountain and sea, crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches and secluded coves that enchant the visitor, leaving him with unforgettable memories. The area is ideal for all kinds of watersports.
The locals are very hospitable.There are numerous hotels and rooms to let for a comfortable and a pleasant stay and various camping grounds and caravan parks for nature lovers. The many restaurants and fish taverns, offer a wide range of traditional dishes and fresh fish.
Relax enjoying your coffee or ice-cream in one of the quiet cafes or get into the rhythm of the intense night-life. You can take a short afternoon walk to the Monastery of Xenofontos, which is located 500 m from the village. The church was built in 1867 and the rest or the buildings in 1900. Excursions set out daily to Mt Athos.
This is the main village of the middle peninsula of Chalkidiki.
"Europe gathered here last June..."
...for the concluding European Council of the Greek Presidency of the European Union. This is apparently the last time an EU council meeting takes place outside Brussels, that gradually becomes the capital of Europe...
...is my favourite village at the most picturesque peninsula of Chalkidiki, SITHONIA, the middle one.
