Sani was popular about its historic ancient site. Today is a luxury resort with a range of hotels along the seaside and private villas set back among the pine-trees.
One of the most impressive sights is the Byzantine tower on the headland which is believed to be the site of acropolis in ancient city; once belonging to the Stavronikita Monastery on Mt. Athos. During summer, the place gets crowded as the famous art festival taking place over there.
Worth it to see:
- The Byzantine tower of Stavronikitas, built in a prehistoric settlement which stands out of the village.
- The large Sani wetland which is close to Sani Resort and offers a home to over 200 species of birds most of which are endangered.
- The Sani Marina, with the luxurious landscape and the spectacular Piazza and the remarkable “Turtle Beach”.
