Location - History

     Sarti is built at the eastern coasts of Sithonia, the second peninsula of Chalkidiki. It is approximately 142 kilometers from Thessaloniki, the second biggest city in Greece. It was build after 1922 by refugees driven away from their homeland, Mikra Asia. Nowadays, there are old, picturesque houses of such refugees still preserved and they show the origin as well as the history of the village. Even though at the beginning the refugees named their village New Afisia in honor of the village they left behind, it was later named Sarti. This was the name of an ancient city which was located at the same place and is mentioned by Herodotus, the ancient Greek historic. That ancient city was destroyed but unfortunately neither the time nor the causes of its destruction are known.

     Nowadays, Sarti attracts many tourists. Its beach is awarded with the blue flag for many years, which constitutes a guarantee of cleanness. The visitor can enjoy the great beaches which combine perfectly green and blue, as with a light breeze the pine - trees meet the waves. The green and blue water, the white sand, the secluded bays and the rock formations enchant the visitor. The conditions are ideal for water sports like surfing, water skiing, fishing or taking a boat tour at the nearby beaches.

     You can also find traditional taverns and cafes at the beach of Sarti, where you can relax while enjoying your coffee or your food in the shadow of the imposing Mount Athos.
