  The natural line of Toroni is characterised by the back relief of the Sithonia peninsula, high wood-covered areas in the central section [highest point 735m Mt Itamos], and the flats in the north.
  The important eco-systems of the area refer to Mt Itamos and the wetlands. The most significant are in Tristinika, Toroni, Porto Koufo and Platanitsi in Sarti's area.
  Porto Koufo is the biggest and safest harbour in Greece [1600m x 550m], its deepest point measuring 40m and the opening to the sea 300m. It is a nursery for many kinds of fish, particularly the larger species. Next to the harbour there is a brackish lake and two swamps.
  The very varied flora of the area is characterised by conifers and evergreen broad-leafed trees and rich growth on the river banks and various marsh plant varieties.
  As for the fauna of the area, birds of prey, carrion and water fowl are common. Wolves, jackals, foxes, deer, wild boar, badgers, weasels and ferrets all exist in small numbers. The small depth of the gulfs and the lack of strong currents assists in the reproduction of fish.
