Aretes Beach 3 is the third beach in the chain of Aretes beaches and the most north. It is about a 15 minute drive north of Toroni. The beaches along this coast have been some of the most isolated in Sithonia for years and are starting to get some attention.
There is no organization on Aretes Beach 3. A restaurant and beach bar can be found on the main Aretes Beach about 500 meters away.
Because you can drive on the grassy field behind the beach from the road, it has become popular with motorhomes.
The beach a combination of sand and pebble. The seabed is also mixed with the southern half having a pebble/sand bottom and the northern half a rock shelf. The water is shallow and good for swimming and snorkeling. You may find nudists on these beaches.
What’s great about Aretes 3
Quiet beach with few people. Southwestern disposition so you get the afternoon and evening sun.
And what’s not…
