Akti Salonikiou is a beach between Ormos Panagias and Pyrgadikia. The closest villages are Metangitsi (4 km, in the mountain), Pyrgadikia (5 km), and Agios Nikolaos (5 km). The beach is lined with summer vacation homes that give you a little beachfront piece of paradise. Fewer people come to this northeastern part of Sithonia, so it is easy to get some quiet time on this beach. The view is also nice towards Mount Athos and Pyrgadikia village which seems like a small island from far. The beach is mostly undeveloped except for the odd sunbed put out by the beach houses. The south end of Salonikiou has two beach bars where most of the tourists hang out, there you can find sunbeds and umbrellas. The beach is a pebble beach and the seabed starts with pebbles but turns into sand after a few meters. The water is clear and gradually gets deeper, until the neck of an adult, and then levels off so you can walk out quite some distance. The quiet atmosphere makes this beach ideal for families with children.
