About Kassandra Nea Skioni - presentation, information, photos and recommendations


The ancient village of Skioni was built after the Trojan War and is mentioned as the first colony of South Greeks in Halkidiki. Warriors from Pellini in the Peloponnese, after the fall of Troy , were returning home with their ships loaded with female slaves and loots. Sailing around Halkidiki, they anchored at the southwest coast of Kassandra , to replenish their supplies in food and water or even to spend the winter there. While the men were on shore, the Trojan female slaves burned the ships and forced the warriors to remain in Kassandra for ever, marry them and found the settlement, which was later named Skioni. A coin from the ancient town (around 500 BC) pictures the Homeric hero Protesilaos, mentioned as the founder of the town. The port of Skioni was important and contributed greatly to the town's prosperity.
During the 5 th century BC, Skioni joined the Athenian Alliance, but during the Peloponnesian War took the part of the Spartans. Skioni was punished heavily for this defection. The Athenians captured the town, slaughtered the inhabitants or took them for slaves and brought migrants from Platees to inhabit it.
Ancient Skioni was southeastern from the village's present location. During the 19 th century, the village Tsaprani was built around 4 km northeast of the present location of Nea Skioni. After 1930 its inhabitants settled on the coast and abandoned the inland village. The settlement founded there was named Nea Skioni.
The new village is a quiet, coastal settlement, surrounded by olive trees.

            Este un resort, in zona nu sunt alte hoteluri/taverne/magazine. Daca doriti sa vizitati alte statiuni, au transport gratuit pana la Nea Skioni sau va puteti deplasa cu masina proprie la statiuni aflate la 10-20 km distanta

            Stanca Andreea, group of friends 09/11/2019DIRECT BOOKING traveler

            Cea mai apropiata statiune e Nea Skioni, la aprox. 3 km. Plaja este superba (Suni beach). Statiunea e destul de mica, insa are de toate ( baruri, port, magazine ). La aprox. 7 km se afla orasul Hanioti. Plaja e superba, statiunea superba, plina de taverne, pub uri, magazine. Meniurile sunt si in limba romana, iar majoritatea ospatarilor cunosc limba, spre deosebire de Nea skioni.

            Plaja cu nisip, se adanceste usor. Oraselul este mic dar gasesti tot ce iti trebuie. Multe terase si restaurante pe plaja.
