Most of the village is only a few minutes from the sea, and on a clear day, there is a wonderful view across the bay to Mount Olympus.
Flogita was founded in 1923, when refugees fleeing the Anatolian destruction in Cappadocia (in modernTurkey) assembled to build New Flogita.
Flogita has 1520 permanent residents, according to the 2001 census. This number increases hugely in the summer months, when visitor numbers raise the population to 20,000.
Flogita is a popular tourist resort, particularly in the summer, and as a result facilities and amusements have increased to cater for the influx. Flogita is noted for its big sandy beach, roughly one kilometre long, and its paved promenade which is popular in the evenings for the customary "volta", or walk. The sea is particularly warm.

Along the sea front there are many tavernas, fast foods shops, confectioners, beach bar cafes, and nightclubs. The atmosphere in the height of the summer season is that of a “party style village”. In the "off" season, Flogita is very quiet.
