Chaniotis Village is another village in Kassandra peninsula of Chalikidiki. It is mainly a summer resort, since its population fluctuates from 500 to 12500 depending on the season. This village was built in 1936 when the old Chaniotis Village, 2.5 km (1.5 miles) away, was destroyed by an earthquake. The natural surrounding, full of springs and rich vegetation, including a dense pine tree forest, is still untouched by tourism, since the latter has not reached the mass tourism paranoia. The village owes its name to the first settler who started the old settlement, and who, coming from Chania, Crete, was rightfully called Chaniotis. St George church (Aghios Georgios) is worth a visit. Mainly, though, people visiting the village do so to enjoy the excellent beaches in or near it, although there are dozens of alternative choices if you want to have a good time during both day and night.
