Sporting Events


Crossing Toroni’s Gulf
Every year, at the end of July, a swimming event of crossing Toroni’s Gulf is taking place, starting from Kallithea, Kassandra and finishing in Nikiti, Sithonia. It is a swimming marathon of 26 klm. Swimmers do not use anything to help themselves swimming. For their safety, swimmers are followed by power boats and high speed vessels that use wireless connection.

At the time that this event is realized, there is a 7-day fair of various activities including performances by dance and theatre groups, organization of sporting events, exhibition hosting and concerts featuring famous Greek singers. During the night that the winner is awarded, there is a reception for the officials and athletes as well as a live music party for all. The ultimate success of this event is its internationalization, since many foreign swimmers from all over the world participate.
