Holidays in Halkidiki

Enjoy Halkidiki Holidays

Halkidiki is a popular holiday destination situated in the north east of Greece, facing the beautiful Aegan Sea. Halkidiki is divided into three peninsulas, Kassandra to the west, Sithonia in the centre and Athos to the east. The nearest airport is Thessaloniki International Airport which is located about 80km south of the three peninsulas.    

With its white beaches and pine-studded headland, the westernmost area, also known as Kassandra, is the most popular with tourists and locals. Here you'll find a wide range of hotels, traditional Greek tavernas and bars. On the beach you can enjoy plenty of water sports, such as wakeboarding, water skiing and snorkelling.  

If you are more of a nature fanatic then the rugged and exhilarating peninsula of Sithonia is for you. The coastline is a mixture of traditional harbours, quiet hamlets and deserted beaches, surrounded by forests and plenty of hiking trails.

Voted as the most beautiful of all the headlands in the area, Mount Athos is home to monks that live in the forest. Although linked to the land, Mount Athos is accessible only by boat. This is a place where you can truly relax and switch off from the 9-5.    

Halkidiki holidays offer a true mix of nightlife to choose from; tourists can spend their evenings taking a quiet moonlit strolls along or sipping drinks at a waterside bar or choose to indulge in a livelier atmosphere in the likes of Fourka and Hanioti, dancing the night away in bars and pubs.

Enjoy the gorgeous golden sands on a holiday in Halkidiki

The Kassandra peninsula is swamped by gorgeous sandy beaches leading into calm and shallow waters vastly resembling those seen in the Caribbean. Those wanting to fill their holiday with action packed days should head to Afitos and Sani beaches, where water sports are in abundance.  

The peninsula of Sithonia does not disappoint either mixing the popular beaches of Agios Ioannis and Spathies with the romantic rocky coves at Elia and the secluded stretches of glittering sand at Sarti and Sykia.    

Everything and anything goes when it comes to dining in Halkidiki from the traditional tavernas, to the Souvlaki grills and cosy kafenion. Make sure you try out the traditional Greek ‘mezes’, and culinary delights of the ‘moussaka’, ‘dolmades’ and ‘keftedes’ dishes. Why not head down to the waterfront restaurants and treat yourself to the daily catch straight from the sea or maybe a more exotic concoction like slow-cooked octopus stew.    

For the culture enthusiasts, head to the third and most stunning peninsular of Athos. Being declared a World Heritage Site, it is also home to over 40 monasteries and an incalculable wealth of ecclesiastical treasures, rare icons and libraries stocked with precious manuscripts. Or why not visit the cave and anthropological museum of Petralona, remains of the Doric sanctuary to Zeus Ammon, and gorgeous small chapel of Agios Penteleimon in Kassandra? Not forgetting the outstanding Paleo-Christian Basilicas of Agios Georgios and Eliis, Church of Apostle Pavlos and Monastery of Evaggelismos in Sithonia.
