The name of the municipality derived from Ancient Stagira and Ancient Acanthus, two cities that played an important role in the region and more specifically in Halkidiki during ancient times. The main occupations of the people are tourism, fishing, mining, agriculture, timber and various services.
Ammouliani is located in the Gulf of Mount Athos, an island of 4.5 sq²/km with sublime beaches such as Alikes, Agios Georgios, Megali Ammos, Karagatsia with a crystal sea, abundant in fish and with rich undewater life for those who love underwater fishing and diving.
Located on the back side of the island, opposite Ouranopoli, is one of the most beautiful and large beaches of Ammouliani, shaping a well-written sandy arc, which is erased toward the coasts of Sithonia. The white fine sand and the crystal waters will amaze you.
The 900 meter long municipal beach of Stratoni with a very beautiful piscatorial shelter and two refreshment stands plays an important role in the village mainly during the summertime. The beach is accessible from everywhere and equipped with ramps for handicapped people from the side of the harbor.
A series of small islets called by the locals, Gaidouronisia constitute a cluster of small islands at a distance less than two miles from Ouranopoli and Ammouliani. You can approach them with your own yacht or rent a small boat, from Ouranopoli or from Kamoudi.
