Information about Nea Potidaia, Halkidiki

Nea Potidea is a large village located at the start of the first peninsula of Halkidiki, Kassandra. Before the village, there is a thin strip of land which features the canal of Potidea to serve ships that come and go to Toroneos Gulf to fish. The canal is the main attraction of Potidea as it impressively joins Toroneos and the Thermaikos Gulfs. Both the western and the eastern side of Potidea are facing the sea. The organized beach bars and cafes are located on the eastern side facing the second peninsula of Halkidiki, Sithonia. On the western cliffs to the Toroneos Gulf, there is a small harbor where fishers tie up their boats and unload their catches. Here lies one of the most famous fish taverns of Halkidiki, Marina.

In Nea Potidea there are plenty of accommodation options, as you will find many rooms and hotels for every taste. We suggest the most modern and luxurious hotel in Halkidiki, the famous Pomegranate Spa Hotel. Furthermore, a great option is the Portes Beach Hotel and Istion Club & Spa.


Across the sandy beach of Potidea, which is approximately 2 km long, there are cafes, restaurants, beach bars, and clubs. The pedestrian area above the beach is full of life during the summer months and Potidea turns into a cosmopolitan place where tourists, families, young people, and couples choose to live unforgettable moments and enjoy the sun and the sea.

Potidea is the entrance of Kassandra peninsula and during the ancient times was called “Doors of Kassandra.” Here is being preserved the fortification wall of Justinian which protected the ancient Potidea and Kassandra from attacks. Nea Potidea was built by refugees from Platanos and Eastern Thrace after 1920, and they brought the image of St. George. The village has a kindergarten, school, and several churches, with the most notable being the church of St. George.
