Holidays in Halkidiki:
Your Complete Travel Guide
It’s often been said that Halkidiki is Greece’s best-kept secret, and though many classicists and geologists disagree about the origins of this “three-fingered claw” reaching down into the sparkling Aegean Sea , there’s no denying that the charming cove-rich area is a treat for visitors. Shaped like Poseidon’s trident and sticking out into the aforementioned Aegean, Halkidiki boasts lush green forests that expand right down to the beach, with golden sunlight reflected in the turquoise waters, endless coves, unique architectural landmarks and a traditional style that brings a rich gastronomic and cultural heritage.
Vacationing during the holidays in Halkidiki can be a bit overwhelming without the right guide, given all the attractions that await to fulfill every euphoric fantasy, but you’ll be ready to succumb to the charms of its three beautiful peninsulas – namely Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos – as well as its dreamy hotels, small coves with fish tavernas and
cafes, beach bars, traditional villages and more once we outline what to see, where to go, what to bring and where to stay.
