Crossing of Toroni Bay (Nikiti)

This is a major event for Nikiti and the surrounding region: the Toroni crossing, a swim of 26km, is completed by swimmers who are allowed no artificial means of staying afloat. Everyone who completes the course is declared a winner and crowned with the victor’s wreath. The tradition began in 1971, when a group of six friends from Halkidiki, sharing a passion for the sea, decided to venture on a swim from Nikiti to Kassandra. The event is usually held in the second fortnight of July and lasts for a week, accompanied by a range of cultural events. The actual swim is held on the last day. tel. 23750 23900, 20066,
