If beach bars, boat trips and splashing around in turquoise waters comprise the trip you’re after, then Kassandra holidays could be for you. What’s brilliant about Kassandra – the first of Halkidiki’s ‘three fingers’ peninsulas – is that everyone is well catered for. Families, groups of friends and couples can all enjoy the diverse mix of nature, fun in the sun and bustling nightlife.
Kassandra has a reputation as Halkidiki’s party hotspot, so if you’re looking to fill your evenings sipping cocktails at beach bars where international DJs spin tunes, you’ve come to the right place. But parts of Kassandra are also incredibly family-friendly – there are fragrant pine and cypress forests to wander through and golden sand beaches to relax on. Not to mention all the shops and restaurants where you can dine on local delicacies. So whether you’re a night owl or a nature-loving family, you’re sure to be bowled over by Kassandra’s beauty and vibrant energy.
Soak in the springs
If your body aches from too much swimming and dancing, make a beeline for the thermal spas of Agia Paraskevi where you can indulge in rejuvenating treatments.
Revel in beach life
Kassandra has fantastic golden sand beaches, many of which are Blue Flag-rated. Either relax with a good book in hand or try snorkelling, scuba diving or tubing.
Pretty Afitos is one of Kassandra’s more traditional villages. It’s well worth spending an afternoon wandering through its cobbled streets and admiring the quaint stone houses.
