The traditional village of Afitos is located on the northeast coast of Kassandra leg, located between Nea Fokea and Kalithea, 83 km away from Thessaloniki. It is built on rocks and although the streets are small and steep, visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of the sea and the surrounding countryside.

Afitos is a historic settlement with 28 centuries of history. In the past the place was so powerful that it had its own coins. Its inhabitants managed to develop tourism and attract many tourists every year without disturbing the old image of the stone houses and cobbled streets.

The coastline is narrow and the sand is mixed with gravel but the water is crystal clear and transparent. This is the only place on Kassandra, where you will find flat and smooth stone on entering the sea, like a pavement.

There are plenty of hotels, apartments and restaurants. Interesting museums to see are: the artist Paralis` house and the house of the folk musician Mantakas. The Folklore Museum is housed in an old house in the village center and exhibits household objects from daily life of people in the area, containers, appliances, ceramics, embroidery and fabrics. Close to the village center you can visit the so called Stone Circle of Afitos - a group of 12 stone sculptures created in 2010 by international sculptors.
