A place of gathering for the youth, among others, the village of Nea Heraklia attracts every summer thousands of visitors due to its marvellous beaches with crystal clear waters and the trendy beach bars.
Due to its proximity to the city of Thessaloniki, Nea Heraklia is very popular with big beaches and white sand. It is fully-organised and perfect for families, while traditional little tavernas in the area serve delicious meze and Greek cuisine.
It is a refugee settlement, between Agios Pavlos and Nea Kallikratia, as the current residents of Nea Heraklia came from Heraklia of Marmara - ancient Perinthos.
Their main occupations are tourism, viticulture and fishing, which means that you will find great tourist traffic, good wine, fresh fish and delicious seafood.
In the centre of the village stands the church of Saint George (Aghios Georgios), whose memory is honoured on 23 April, while a significant archaeological finding - a silver reliquary of the 4th and 5th century AD, with carved scenes from the Old and New Testaments on all four sides, found in the area, is now showcased in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki.
