Nea Skioni was the first city to be built in Kassandra, the westernmost of Halkidiki’s three fingers. While steeped in ancient history, it’s now a thoroughly modern resort – Nea Skioni holidays are designed to whisk you away to a world of relaxation. The village is built around a scenic harbour, with working fishing boats that return every day to supply the tavernas with fresh fish and seafood. There’s a fun, local nightlife scene here, with ouzo bars and traditional tavernas where you can listen to Greek music.
Nea Skioni is surrounded by cedar and pine forests, which lend a fantastic scent to the air. Of course, the spot where you’ll spend most of your time is the Blue Flag beach. Shielded from the wind, the sand is soft and golden and the water a fantastic turquoise. Holidays to Nea Skioni are just the ticket for families and couples looking for a relaxing getaway, accompanied by beautiful scenery.
Take a walk
Nea Skioni is perfect for long walks, either along the kilometres of sandy beach where you can dip your toes in the sea, or through the pine forests.
Visit a church
Be sure to visit the Panagia Faneromeni church about 2 kilometres from Nea Skioni. Originally built in the 16th century, you’ll find beautiful and surprisingly well-preserved paintings inside.
Relax and heal
Nea Skioni is a short drive from the thermal spa of Agia Paraskevi. Its warm mineral springs are known for their healing and relaxing properties.
