Located on the Kassandra peninsula of Halkidiki, Possidi might be the most laid-back and off-the-beaten-track of all the holiday spots in the area. On Possidi holidays, you’ll be charmed by the village’s beauty, as well as the natural surroundings. Named after the Greek god Poseidon, Possidi is the perfect place for spending lots of time frolicking in the sea – though you should also take a peek at the temple, built for the god himself.
The star of Possidi is the breathtaking peninsula, which is covered in golden sand (it almost looks like the desert) and surrounded by impossibly blue waters. You’ll find beaches where you can be completely alone, as well as those with all the usual amenities. The village extends halfway down the peninsula, and you’ll discover plenty of great tavernas with fantastic sea views, and fun beachside bars that host parties in the evening. After an idyllic day, be sure to catch the sunset each evening – holidays to Possidi truly are a slice of paradise.
Visit a temple
A trip to Possidi wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, located on a breathtaking peninsula jutting out to sea.
Snap a selfie
Be sure to visit the beautiful lighthouse, built in 1864 and the only building on Possidi’s cape. It’s the perfect place for a holiday snap or two.
Hit the beach
There are several fantastic beaches around Possidi, but the most beautiful might be Egeopelagitika, located on the edge of the cape – the sand is brilliantly white and the water is aquamarine blue.
