Nea Phokea (Νέα Φωκαία, Nea Fokea) is a village on the Kassandra peninsula in Greece with isolated beaches and big pine-trees which almost reach the sea water. The inhabitants of Nea Phokea are 1,500, but during the summer months this number increases to 10,000. The village is developed enough to offer its visitors hotels, camping sites, entertainment, traditional cafes and seafood tavernas with a view to the sea.
