They say that nowhere in Greece can boast beaches like those of Halkidiki.
They say that nowhere in Greece can boast beaches like those of Halkidiki. The region has the perfect combination of that distinctive Greek light, unspoiled landscapes, colors and fragrances. And the glorious natural setting is complemented by the rich culinary fare of the region and the living religious traditions of its people, manifested in a host of feast days and other ceremonies and rituals.
Halkidiki is the most popular holiday destination in northern Greece. Halkidiki has long been famed for its cosmopolitan seaside resorts, beautiful natural landscape, and exotic beaches. Halkidiki is a peninsula, which is divided into three smaller peninsulas, the so-called legs.
The first leg “Kassandra” is full of popular tourist resorts, luxurious 5 stars hotels, and organized beaches. The second leg “Sithonia” is less organized and full of secluded coves. The third leg “Athos” is a close monastic community, where the entrance is allowed only to men with special permission.
This is a place where all your senses will come to life, whether on the endless expanses of sand of the fashionable, cosmopolitan beaches or in the intimacy of the many secluded bays and coves. The scent of the pine trees and the salt brine of the sea combine to relax the body and spirit, leaving you at peace to enjoy the grandeur of the region’s famed sunrises and sunsets.
