Conveniently located in Halkidiki to see a lot of the main sights, the purpose-built resort of Hanioti caters to the needs of holidaymakers with its abundance of hotels, restaurants and tavernas. The Blue Flag beach provides a sandy retreat from the quaint winding streets of the town and there are plenty of activities such as scuba diving and go-karting to keep even the most active family entertained!
Although Hanioti’s beach is narrow, it spans 5 km and is full of golden, pebbly sand. There are plenty of sunloungers available if you fancy a lazy day but don’t overlook getting into the ocean. The clear waters are a great place to snorkel and there are plenty of little coves to discover. Back on dry land though you’ll find some modern beach bars which are great for an afternoon snack.
Things to Do
During the day, why not entertain the family by having a game of mini-golf for an hour or two? Alternatively, grab a hire car and enjoy the countryside of Hanioti and seek out those secluded beaches that are so peaceful and quiet. When the sun goes down, the shops open up and the quaint outlets are great places to pick up local jewellery and pretty ceramics to take home as souvenirs!
Food and Drink
The square in the middle of the resort is full of cafes and the winding streets leading off the square are home to locally-owned restaurants and tavernas. A speciality here is beef stifado but you’ll also find that Greek food and pizza are popular in Hanioti. Evening drinks can be enjoyed along the main streets but there’s a 24-hour beach bar too if you fancy a late night tipple.
