The lagoon of Kalochori constitutes the northern gate of the National Park, lying at a mere 8 km. from the city of Thessaloniki. This coastal wetland is of special interest since despite being at the edge of a large urban center with all the pressures that brings, it constitutes one of the most important areas of the National Park, hosting great numbers of birds and other organisms throughout the year. The lagoon often becomes a place of refuge for large numbers of flamingos, who find ample supplies of food in its shallow waters. The lagoon offers impressive images, with birds feeding off its water, with the urban landscape and the port cranes of Thessaloniki in the background.

I am so pleased you uploaded this one with the coordinates as I am planning to visit the Delta Axiou next September! I was wondering for a long time how to get there! Thank you!

There is a really easy access if You take the exit to Chalastra and just before entering the village turn left heading to the sea but I suggest You to get there from Kalochori using these coordinates 40.631680, 22.846512. There is a lot of bumps on the road from that spot but You will see the whole place and not just the fishermen's huts.

Thank you so much for the info and the coordinates! I was just struggling with the exist from the highway and so I will keep it to Kalochori instead of Chalastra. I am used to the pits and holes on the "dirt roads", I was slalom-driving in Tuscany to avoid them :-) If you happen to have more tips until September, I would appreciate it very much.
