What I can see

At a distance of 22 km from Thessaloniki, between Perea and Agia Triada, is Nei Epivates. It is a settlement with a population of about 6000 inhabitants and is famous for its cafes and taverns by the sea with a great view of Thessaloniki. They mainly serve seafood and these taverns are of the same style with those of the neighbouring Agia Triada and Perea. The beach is washed by the waters of Thermaic Gulf and is partly organized.

What I can't see

The area is also known as Bahce Ciflik, as mentioned in a well-known Greek song. Until the end of the Ottoman period, it was a feud of a Turkish Pasha. The name “Nei Epivates” arose after the exchange of populations and the 631 refugees from Epivates of eastern Thrace, who settled here. It had already been a holiday destination for Thessalonians and its peak was during the 1950s-1980s.
