Halkidiki is the most popular tourist destination in Northern Greece and one of the most popular in the whole country. It is a large peninsula consisting of 3 smaller peninsulas, Kassandra, Sithonia and Mount Athos. The capital of the prefecture of Chalkidiki is Polygyros.
Kassandra, the westernmost peninsula of the 3, is famous for its vibrant nightlife, luxury hotels, a variety of recreational activities and, of course, as is all of Halkidiki, its beautiful beaches.
Just 80 km from Thessaloniki you can find N. Fokaia and continue this enchanting trip to the traditional Afitos and the cosmopolitan Kallithea, which is famous for its nightlife and the wide variety of recreational activities it offers.
Then you will find Kriopigi, the picturesque Hanioti, the beautiful Polychrono and the famous Pefkohori.
On the way to traditional Agia Paraskevi guests will find Paliouri.
Nea Skioni, with its long history and beautiful beaches, and Kalandra welcome their visitors by offering them an unforgettable tourist experience. the next stop of this gorgeous trip is Fourka and the lush Kassandrinos.
As you travel to Kassandra you will be impressed by the harmonious way of combining the beauty of nature and the luxurious facilities of the hotels and entertainment centers.
Most of the major tourist resorts of Kassandra are located on the east coast, especially along the coastal beach from Kallithea to Pefkohori. To the west, Sani is the largest resort with Skala Fourka being second. The majority of Cassandra’s most beautiful beaches regularly receive the annual Blue Flag Award for their safety and cleanliness, as are many other beaches in Halkidiki.
Sithonia is the central peninsula of Halkidiki, which has all the conditions for a peaceful and active holiday. There is a wide range of locations that tourists can choose to stay in, even camping. Whether you are visiting Neos Marmaras, Agios Nikolaos, Vourvourou, Metamorphosis or any other resort or village, you are sure to be enthralled with their architecture and atmosphere.
Beaches of Sithonia
Although the whole peninsula of Halkidiki has beautiful beaches, the beaches of Sithonia are truly unique and are among the most beautiful in the world. All have white sand and turquoise waters and are rarely crowded. This has helped the fact that the area is still “pristine” and there has not been much investment in tourist facilities. Indicatively, some of the beaches we recommend visiting are Kavourotrypse, Lagomandra, Kalogria and Trani Ammouda.
