Holidays in
Nea Potidea

A tranquil seaside gem

Nea Potidea is located right on the canal that separates the peninsula of Halkidiki with the mainland and it’s often referred to as the gateway to the Kassandra peninsula. On Nea Potidea holidays, prepare to embrace a world of tranquil beaches, ancient ruins, Greek hospitality and all the conveniences you could want on a sunshine break. This geographically unique holiday spot is surrounded by water on both sides, so you’ll have your pick of excellent beaches.

On the western shore, there are mainly private beaches and the marina, where you’ll find excellent tavernas with sea views. For relaxing and swimming, head to the eastern shore where you’re spoilt for sandy beaches adorned with umbrellas and chairs for rent, and a jaw-dropping blue-green coastline. When night falls, head to the bars and cafés to listen to music and sample local aperitifs, including ouzo and raki. Holidays to Nea Potidea offer a laid-back way of life that’s hard to resist.

Your Nea Potidea questions, answered

Surrounded by the sea on both sides, Nea Potidea is a great place for seafood. Try stuffed cuttlefish or grilled octopus from one of the tavernas on the seafront.

Nea Potidea is a true holiday spot and you’ll find every kind of amenity you need, from banks and supermarkets to souvenir shops and water-sports rentals.

Everyone raves about the view of the canal and the bridge that joins the Toroneos and Thermaikos Gulfs – it’s even more beautiful at the end of the day around sunset.

Best things to do in Nea Potidea

Visit some ruins

There’s a rich history to the castle whose ruins you can see – it was destroyed by the Huns, repaired by an emperor, taken by the Venetians and then later the Ottomans.

Throw a line

Nea Potidea has a fishing port that’s popular with both locals and tourists. You can bring your own fishing pole or buy one in the resort and throw in a line.

Go to church

Don’t miss the Church of Taxiarches, which was built in 1872 with materials from ruins of ancient Potidea. Visit on Sunday morning to witness the full Orthodox experience.
