Sarti is the main tourist resort of the Eastern coast of Sithonia. Located just before Sykia, approximately 140 khm from Thessaloniki. Is built aamphitheatrically along a large beach facing the top of Athos. The place got its name from the ancient city “Sarti” that existed in the area during the classical period. Some ruins of the castle of the city are found in the South of the present village, near Sykia.
Modern Sarti was founded in 1922 by Greek refugees from Asia minor. They were poor people and they came to a place that had lillte to offer them. So the shift to tourism was normal especially after the 60s when the first tourist facilities were created in Sithonia.
