Sithonia  (Σιθωνία) is the second Finger of Halkidiki (Χαλκιδική) in Greece. The beautiful beaches on the east coast are mainly visited by campers.

Greece's biggest nature port - Pórto Koufó - is located at the southwest tip. In the calm waters the fishermen could always find shelter from the rough seas. In the 2nd World War II, the port served as a base for the German submarine force in the eastern Mediterranean.

Just a few miles away we reach the Bay of Toroni. Off the coast, on a small peninsula, the remains of a Byzantine castle are preserved.

The west coast is dominated by the tourist sites Neos Marmaras and Porto Carras.
