Sarti is the second-largest village in the municipality with 936 inhabitants. It was founded by refugees from Afisia, who left Asia minor in 1922. At the time the area contained only farms belonging to the monasteries of Xiropotamos and St Pavlos. At least 70 families were given a refuge in the dependency of Xiropotamos monastery, some of them staying there for more than two years.
Nowadays along the golden beach of Sarti are builded small complexes of rent rooms as well as narrow streets containing various touristic shops restaurants, bars and cafes.
The old village still contains a few of the picturesque original houses.

Sykia Community

  Sikia is the largest village of Sithonia, and to a great extent has kept much of its traditional color. Tradition has it that in the old days, before the village was built, the people had lived in scattered settlements with between 50 to 100 houses in each.
  Nobody is quite sure when the village name was changed to Sikia but it probably dates back to the 15th century. There are different versions of how the village gained its new name, one of them relates to the shadow cast by the rising sun of mount Athos across the Gulf. The tip of the shadow just covers the village. And although in the local accent the name of the village pronounced almost the same as the word for shadow. Another interpretation links the name of the village with the town of the period from ancient times, Sigga's, which gave its name to the Gulf of mount Athos. A third version of the story suggests that the name is derived from the Greek word of fig tree. In medieval times a huge fig tree stood in the meadows of the valley which was remarkable enough for it to be mentioned in the 14th century documents of mount Athos.
  The old village which lies about 3 km from the sea, has many sub settlements along the beautiful bays of the coastline which are much frequented by tourists in the summer : Linaraki, Pigadaki, Kalamitsi, Porto Koufo, Toroni, Tristinika.

  The municipality of Toroni is situated on the south part of Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki. It is between the gulf of Kassandra also called Toroneos gulf and the gulf of Agion Oros (Athos) or Sigitikos.
  Mount Itamos (811 m height) is stretched out on the north and central part of the municipality. The trees here are mainly pine trees and plane trees.
  The alternation of the landscape, the amazing beauty of the coasts, the climate, which is ideal because of the sea and the mountain influence, together with Mount Athos tradition offer the visitor the opportunity to have at the same time unforgettable holidays an acquisition of knowledge.
