|THE BEACHES OF AFITOS ON THE KASSANDRA PENINSULA IN CHALKIDIKI OR HALKIDIKI IN GREECE|
A popular resort, and then mainly with the Greeks themselves, is the small town of Afytos, Afitos or Athitos (three different spellings / names, not uncommon in Greece) that is situated in the northeast of the Kassandra peninsula. Afitos dates from the early 19th century and the architecture is authentic and cozy Greek with small houses made of natural stone and narrow streets. There are as good as no high rise buildings in the village and all the new houses were built in the old style. On the village square stands the St. Demetrius Church, built in 1858. It is the only domed basilica on the Halkidiki peninsula. On and around the square you will find several bars and restaurants.
The village of Afitos itself is situated quite high on a 75 meter high cliff, and from there you have beautiful views of the bay. It is called "The balcony of Kassandra". The sandy beach of Afitos (Aristoteles beach) is about half a kilometer from the center of the village and can be reached via a steep road and some stairs leading from the village. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for rent and there are possibilities for water sports. The beach at Afitos is shallow so it is well suited for families with small children. Inside the village and near the beach there is a good selection of accommodations to choose from and there are quite a few shops and a couple of supermarkets. Within walking distance of Afitos you will find the village of Nea Fokea with a well-preserved Byzantine tower and a castle. Kallithea in the south is situated at 3 kilometers distance.
