Polichrono

A family-friendly coastal hotspot

Love to spend your days lounging on golden sands with a good book? Or perhaps you’d like to have a go at some heart-pumping water sports?

Located on the east coast of the Kassandra peninsula in Halkidiki, the charming village of Polichrono sits alongside a 7-kilometre-long Blue Flag beach, dotted with umbrellas and sunloungers for rent, plus bars and cafeterias for when you’re feeling peckish.

In the resort, you’ll find plenty of tavernas and restaurants, serving everything from grilled fish to meat souvlaki.
