After Porto Koufo we find the 19th century traditional settlement of Sykia, or Logos as was named by some Athonite documents of the Byzantine period, one of the largest villages in Sithonia. Today village has to show to the visitor its parish church, dedicated to St. Athanasius, with its carved wooden shrines.
The beach of Sykia, some 3 km away from the village, and the nearby long sandy beach of Kalamitsi with their crystal clear water are ideal for swimming and relaxing under the sun.
To the west of the village, on the "Koukos" hill, there are remains of a fortress and evidence of a prehistoric settlement. On this site, in September 1987, began a systematic excavation of an early Iron age cemetery (10th to 8th BC centuries) .
So far many tombs have been investigated and the grave offerings, which have survived are of exceptional interest.
