What I can see

East of Thessaloniki and near Lake Volvi, is the seaside town of Asprovalta. The permanent residents are about 3,000, but the number is higher during summer, because many Thessalonians have holiday homes here. The beach is sandy, much of which is organized. It is a beautiful landscape that combines the sea of Strymonikos Gulf (east), with the green mountains (west).

What I can't see

The area has been inhabited since ancient times. The current settlement (of permanent residents) developed after the arrival of refugees in 1922. From the 1960s to the 1980s, it flourished as it was a popular holiday destination for Thessalonians. From the 1990s until today, Halkidiki has been the most popular holiday destination in the wider region and one of the most popular in the country. Nevertheless, Asprovalta is still very crowded in the summer. During winter, it is an ideal destination for surfing and windsurfing athletes.
