Sani is a pretty holiday village that perches perfectly upon the velvety soft shores of one of Halkidiki’s stunning peninsulas. This resort may be small, but that’s all part of the beauty of this tranquil paradise. Fine white sands rest alongside vibrant green pine trees forming incredibly refreshing, scenic views. There’s even a picturesque harbour, nestled in the heart of town, where you can take a wander and experience the wonder of this town’s past life as a simple fishing village, before becoming a rising star in the world of relaxing Greek beach escapes. BeachesKissed by the gentle waves of the Aegean Sea, Sani’s main beach boasts a beautiful, golden crescent that stretches out for seven long kilometres into the distance. Spend your days sun-soaking in the glorious Greek sunshine, whilst your worries melt away as you take in the soothing deep-blue sea views. The beaches here slope gradually into the sea, so these warm, shallow waters are perfect for everyone from confident swimmers and even toe dippers too! If you’re an avid explorer, take to the coastlines for an adventure and discover plenty of screen-saver worthy stretches of silky smooth sands. For wide, open oceans, craggy costal cliffs and plenty of sun bathing space, take a trip to the north of the Island where the elegant sands of Stavronikita Beach lie ready and waiting… Food & DrinkSani cuisine takes influences from its Mediterranean roots, meaning rich olive oils, rustic flatbreads and marinated meats frequently take the limelight in these parts of town. If you fancy trying a local dish, add some cheesy goodness to your meal with a side of halloumi. This superstar staple of Greek kitchens is well loved across the islands, and if you’re anything like us, you won’t be able to get enough of the stuff! Discover Sani’s authentic cooking style with a trip to the marina.
