Nea Potidea is home to a natural wonder that is the canal that connects Toroneos Bay with the Gulf of Themaikos. This canal offers a truly outstanding and even transfixing view that brings travellers in from not only all over Greece, but all over the world as well. Many locals, and tourists, too, consider Kassandra peninsula to be more of an island than a peninsula, thanks to its beauty and isolated wonder, and those who feel this way consider the wonderfully scenic town of Nea Potidea to be the gateway to this island. It is because of this, and also the town's historic roles as a sovereign role throughout Greece's history, the town is also known as "the Doors of Kassandra."
The town has a Justinian era wall that can be found just on the inner side of the main road that divides the town from the canal. This wall is part of the main fortification of the entrance to the peninsula. This wall comes to an end on the western side of town, off towards the port. This portion of the wall is known to often have waves crashing against it, and onto one of the walls towers. This scene is one that draws a lot of attention from tourists thanks to its wonderful combination of natural beauty and historical architecture.
The wall, though one of the boldest and most glaring examples of the amazing architecture in Nea Potidea, it is hardly the only one. Within walking distance of the the town, about a 1 km hike to the southeast, you can find another glowing example of the town's history in the chapel of the Archangels, which was built in the early 1870s. However beautiful and even haunting these wonderfully historic sides of town are, the modern elements of Nea Potidea does not paint too much more of a modern picture of itself. With mostly pedestrianized streets, Nea Potidea has mostly walking and bicycle traffic with little kiosks and bridges stringing the town together.
Of course, as with any popular Greek vacation destination, there is a wonderful beach in town, too. Located about 2 km east of the centre of town, the beach is the perfect destination for those looking to take long walks along the beach, or spreading out a beach blanket, planting an umbrella and soaking in some sun during one of the many warm days throughout the year.
Located on the west side of the beach is steep shore that is often populated by local fishing boats that provide the local restaurants with fresh, delicious fish.
There is also the Nea Potidea lighthouse, which is a key destination for any visitors, but especially those on a romantic escape. Taking in a sunset at this location is bound to throw some romance and wonder into any vacation. Afterwards, you can go and enjoy a beverage and take in the picturesque views of the sea at one of the many local bars.
