A spot of secluded luxury on Halkidiki’s west coast, Sani is a beautiful 1000-acre nature reserve that is home to million dollar yachts, a sleek and stylish marina, delicious food, designer shops and a dazzling white beach. With Mount Olympus as a backdrop to the 5-star hotels and the inviting turquoise blue sea shimmering in the sun, a holiday to Sani is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
Things to Do
For a change of scenery, walk along the 4km clifftop trail. This walk follows Sani’s shoreline to an ancient Roman villa and there is a lot of wildlife to see along the way such as butterflies and lizards. To spot wildlife in the ocean, hop on a cruise for a day on the Aegean Sea. Choose from a trip to Sithonia or, for a more cultural time, sail around Mount Athos which is a land ruled by monks.
The Blue Flag beach of Sani is more than deserving of its award. This 7km stretch of sand is backed by small grass dunes and is a relaxing place to spend a day in the sun. Grab a good book or go paddling with the family in the sparkling water which is nice and shallow. 30 minutes down the coast is Siviri beach, an ideal place if you’re looking for a more secluded and romantic beach day.
Food and Drink
Sani is a classy place and that’s reflected in the dining options around the marina. Classic Greek restaurants combine with a contemporary twist giving a luxe feel to any dining experience you might have in Sani. The smell of BBQ and grilled fish float through the air and meals are very well complemented by a cocktail in one of the waterside bars which often play jazz music during the evening.
