The beautiful town of Nikiti is an ideal getaway for those looking to experience traditional Greek life, while being spoiled for choice with nature. It’s one of the least-crowded towns in Halkidiki, so you’ll be able to fully relax and enjoy the surroundings. You’ll spend Nikiti holidays strolling through the village’s charming old quarter, eating delicious local food, swimming in the impossibly tropical-looking water and walking through the forest.
The old part of the resort is located 2 kilometres from the coast – although it is still an emerging tourist destination, you’ll find plenty of amenities to suit your every need. Nights tend to be low-key, but there are a few bars and cafés serving typical drinks, including ouzo and retsina. Holidays to Nikiti are perfect for families and couples looking for a laid-back Greek experience with more than a dash of authenticity.
Explore the village
Old Nikiti is a beautiful place to walk around at any time of the day – you’ll find cobblestone streets, old stone houses and squares shaded by huge oak trees.
Hit the beach
There are two beaches in town (on the opposite side of Nikiti from the old quarter) where you’ll find umbrellas, sunloungers and cafés. More tranquil beaches are a short drive away.
Take in the view
Walk to the edge of the village and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views of the church and the bay, with the rest of Halkidiki spread out before you.
