The village of Kallithea, in the western coast of Kassandra, is a popular tourist destination, because of its marvelous sandy beach--most popular with the youth-- and its important archaeological and religious sights.

In the most southern part of the peninsula, this is a favorite destination for those who love free camping; caravans parked almost on the edge of the steep rocks with their owners enjoying the best view of the Aegean sea with the Sporades islands popping up on the horizon.
