Over the recent years, the resort district of Nea Flogita has developed significantly. It is famous for its top-rated beach, the total length of which is one and a half kilometers. Despite the fact that this district is one of the newest, it started being built in 1923. At one time, the lands where the resort area is located now belonged to the Monastery on Holy Mt. Athos that laid in ruins at the beginning of the 20th century. So, the district was literally built on the ruins of the ancient monastery. Today, several preserved historical constructions are being reconstructed.

They can visit picturesque St. George's Cathedral located in the center of the district. The natives consider St. George as their main patron. Annually, several interesting holidays are celebrated after him. Several years ago, the interesting cultural center called “Justian” was opened. It is devoted to different spheres of Byzantium culture. In the center, visitors can admire interesting exhibits and take part in different themed entertainments and master classes.
The favorite place for walks of guests and local residents is the embankment that stretches almost along the entire beach. On both sides of the embankment, beautiful palm trees and ornamental plants grow and comfortable benches are installed.
