Kassandra is the westernmost of three fingers of the Chalkidike peninsula. At its narrowest point in the northern part it is intersected by the Canal of Potidea.
The 40 m wide waterway was built by the Macedonian King Cassander around 300 BC.
For a long time, Cassander was pawn of Crusaders, Latin Empire, Byzantium and Ottoman Empire.
Fortifications from Byzantine time are still recognizable on the southwestern shore.
