Kassandra Kriopigi Holidays
Kriopigi is a small town on the Greek peninsula of Kassandra. It is not far away from the town of Kallithea (if you are looking for clubs or shopping opportunities). Hanioti is also just a short drive away. The town is very popular amongst English, Bulgarian, Greek and Slovakian tourists. Transfer time from the main airport at Thessaloniki is less than 2 hours.
Kassandra Kriopigi holidays activities
Holidays to Kriopigi are mostly about sun, sea and sand. The town itself is pretty – built against a steep, pine-clad hill. On the Central Square, there are some nice taverns where you can meet locals and drink some genuine Greek Ouzo. Kriopigi is built on a steep hill, and the beach is located at the bottom of the hill.
It can be quite a walk back to your hotel, especially if you are not very fit. Fortunately, one of the hotels runs a small train down to the beach and back from just after 9 in the morning to about 5 in the afternoon. The beach itself is covered with pebbles. If you prefer a sandy beach, take a short drive to Kallithea or Hanioti.
The Kassandra peninsula has many places of natural beauty and historical interest. Close to the town of Kriopigi are a number of lovely sandy beaches. If you venture further out, you could visit archaeological sites such as the remains of the ancient Zeus temple at Kallithea, Mt. Athos monastery in Nea Phokea and the Poseidon temple in Posidi.
Although Kriopigi is smaller and has fewer bars and restaurants than its two cousins, Hanioti and Kallithea, it still has a number of very nice restaurants, cafes and taverns. If you like Greek food, you will certainly not be disappointed. It is even possible to get some English-type snacks at some of the bars, such as Casablanca. If you have never tried crêpes and Greek coffee, Kriopigi will provide you with an excellent opportunity to do so.
There are a couple of bars in the town where one could get some action after hours, but on the whole Kassandra Kriopigi holidays are not meant for those who want to rock all night. Nearby Kallithea has some nightclubs, and many young people venture there after dark. Tour operators in and around Kriopigi sell a variety of day tours to nearby sights. It is also possible to buy ferry tickets to many of the other Greek islands from these tour operators.
