Holidays to Halkidiki, Greece

Overview

Although it may sound like an idyllic island escape, Halkidiki is actually part of mainland Greece, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less picturesque. In fact, since the area is relatively undiscovered, you can have the beaches all to yourself. Halkidiki is made up of three sections – the busier destination of Kassandra to the east, wild and rugged Sithonia in the centre and Mount Athos on the Eastern peninsula.

Things to Do

On the Eastern peninsula of Kassandra, head to the popular village of Hanioti where pretty cafes and traditional restaurants line the central village square. Don’t let it’s old fashioned façade fool you though, Hanioti has every modern convenience you could wish for with a large shopping centre and a lively nightlife. Head to Sani for gorgeous Blue Flag beaches, or Nea Moudania to see ancient ruins and a hilltop basilica.

Food and Drink

For freshly-made, delicious food as well as a variety of choice, Halkidiki is a paradise. Sani boasts a great selection of restaurants and bars to dine at, specialising in local seafood, tasty risottos and herb-crusted lamb. The marina is also the perfect place to take some envy-inducing photos to show friends back home! If you need a quick lunch, look no further than gyro or souvlaki, Greece’s yummy take on fast food.
