The picturesque seaside village of Nea Fokea with the well preserved Byzantine tower of St. Paul, the picturesque harbor, beautiful beaches, and clear waters, attract tourists of all ages. The village has over 2000 inhabitants, which in the summer are more than 10,000 and is just 78km away from beautiful Thessaloniki, the cultural capital of Greece. It is one of the newest villages of Kassandra, which was founded in 1924 by refugees from Asia Minor. Although a new village, it demonstrates a long history. The area has been inhabited since ancient times. The village of Nea Fokea is the ancient village of St. Paul (the name of the village, according to tradition, comes from the holy water of Saint Paul, located in the area), which was destroyed between 1321 and 1407. For this reason, the elder residents of Kassandra, even today, call New Fokea, St. Paul.
The village has a remarkable tourist infrastructure, including luxury hotels, apartments, restaurants, taverns, fish taverns, cafes, pastry shops, etc. At the site of the Tower during the summer months, there are cultural events, incorporated within the Kassandra Festival.
