Vourvourou is a resort on the eastern coast of Sithonia
, between the villages of Sarti
and Ormos Panagias
, 120 km from Thessaloniki. It is an administrative unit of the village of Agios Nikolaos
and populated only in the summer season. From Vourvourou you can see the uninhabited island of Diaporos
and eight small rocky islets that surround it, known as the nine islands of Vourvourou.
The resort offers everything tourists need - various hotels and rooms to rent, taverns, cafes, pizzerias, beach bars and shops. You can rent a car or bike to climb the nearby Mount Ithamos and enjoy the unique view of the bay of Vourvourou and the rocky islands. The resort also offers water sports and diving. Trips to the neighboring Mount Athos
are organized in the resort of Ormos Panagia, about 5 km away.
Vourvourou does not resemble a town or village, it is more like villa area. There is not differentiated center with main street, nor park or square. There is no promenade and everything is scattered at shorter or greater distance from the beach.
Next to Vourvourou you will find the beautiful Karidi
beach, located in a small secluded bay. The beaches around Vourvourou are shallow and very suitable for children but on some places near the rocks sea urchins are present, so you`d better use aqua shoes.
