Landscape

The three peninsulas give Halkidiki a diverse, snaking 550km coastline with scenic gulfs, busy resorts and peaceful bays. Here you will find dazzling white sands and pristine water; there are no major rivers or industry so the sea remains crystal clear.

Kassandra, the western peninsula, is the most popular and developed, with hotels to suit all tastes and a huge range of water sports available. There are also quieter spots to explore. Pefkohori is a resort with lovely beaches and wooded surroundings, various hotels and villas, and boat races take place during the summer. Some consider the village of Afytos to be the most picturesque spot on Kassandra, with cobbled lanes leading to cliffs and beaches.

The second peninsula Sithonia is more rugged and sparsely populated, so appeals to nature lovers and holidaymakers seeking tranquillity. Sleepy coves and hamlets join comfortable, modern resorts along the coast. Porto Carras is Greece's largest holiday complex, with a shopping centre, golf course, vineyard and hotels. In contrast the village of Parthenonas provides a glimpse of a traditional life on Sithonia, with its dilapidated stone houses.

The alluring wooded hills behind the coastline can be explored to discover the local wildlife, but you're never far from a beach in Halkidiki!

Things To Do on Halkidiki Holidays

There are many attractions on offer for people on holidays in Halkidiki: sun, sea, beaches and so much more. There are festivals and cultural events, and a wealth of history to discover. There are over twenty archaeological sites including the remains of the 7th Century BC city-harbour at Akanthos, and the sanctuary at Nea Roda. The village of Stagira, on a picturesque plateau, is famous as the birthplace of Aristotle. A fine statue of the philosopher stands in the village and the remains of the 16th Century 'Sultan's Mint' are nearby.

Petralona's Cave is an important historical and scientific site with an anthropological museum located above the caves. The pretty town of Arnia is home to The History and Folklore Museum.

Mount Athos is a semi-autonomous monks' republic, home to Byzantine monasteries and art treasures, but is only open to males over the age of 18, and those wanting to visit need to apply for a permit from the Pilgrims' Bureau in Thessaloniki. Women, or men unwilling to go through the application process, can take an offshore cruise from the resorts of Ierissos and Ouranoupoli to see Mount Athos and catch a glimpse of the monasteries.

Culture

Halkidiki features throughout Greek mythology and has an ancient history. Settlements were established and eventually came under Macedonian rule in 348BC, and then Roman in 168BC.

During the Byzantine era the first monastery was built on Athos, and over time more monks arrived. After long struggles between Turks, Venetians and Greeks Halkidiki finally became part of the Greek Macedonia in 1912.

Evidence of a turbulent past is scattered across its lands, but today Halkidiki is the most peaceful and idyllic of places.

Halkidiki has cultural events and festivals throughout the year. Afytos and Sivri host The Kassandra Festival. The Porto Caras Festival in July features jazz, latin and traditional music. Sani holds a festival throughout July and August with all sorts of music and art on offer.

In Halkidiki, like the rest of Greece, Holy Week is a very special celebration with events in many towns and villages.
