Posidi, Kassandra Halkidiki Posidi is the beach of Kallandra and it is well known. The most famous characteristic of the region is its lighthouse, which is built for many years. The camping of GNTO, the countless beach-bars, the local meat, the fires on its endless beach, make Posidi a unique piece of the Greek land that remains unforgettable to its visitor. The lighthouse Built in 1864, the lighthouse stood very near to the water in its early days but now the sea has backed away. The sand stretch was formed later from piling up of sediments. This colonial styled lighthouse is still in use today and has a small flowery garden besides it, adding to its beauty. Mendi The area is tightly associated with the existence of “Mendi”. The place-names of the country of Mendi were kept unchanged, like the one of its beach that is still called Posidio, an ionic expression of Posidonion, as Thucydides names it in the 5th ce BC. Four km west is the temple of Poseidon, built on a stripe of land near the sea.
