This coastal municipality is located at the east of the prefecture of Thessaloniki, in the central part of Thermaikos gulf. The seashore of the municipality has 7.4 km length and constitutes the more naturally beautiful place in the region. The settlements occupy the biggest part of the coastal area.
Despite the fact that in recent years the settlements of Peraia, N.Epivates and Agia Triada are changed into regions of first residence and are not any more the regions of seasonal residence, the region of Thermaikos continues to attract a significant number of visitors during the summer.
The communities of N. Epivates and AgiaTriada are especially very popular resorts. Plenty of taverns, bars and cafeterias are located in the coastal area, while, an evening walk in the beach of Thermaikos with the view of Thessaloniki, is always delightful.
