Hike: Toroni – Porto Koufo – Lemos – South tip of Sithonia
Walking time: 6 hours (19 km roundtrip)
Elevation: 330 m
This hike will take you from Toroni (or your can start from Porto Koufo) to the most southern point on Sithonia. You will get to see the majestic harbour of Porto Koufo which is more like a fjord and the deepest natural harbour in Greece. The tour will then take you to some beaches that are difficult to access, so few people ever go there. First on the way is Marathias beach followed by Lemos beach on the tip. It’s not a difficult walk, but the distance is enough to be a long day if you stay to enjoy the beaches.
