Halkidiki Holidays – Stunning beaches, peaceful atmosphere, traditional Greek character
A great choice if you are in search of classic Greek beaches with a relaxed atmosphere, Halkidiki still has plenty of authentic charm and offers a great alternative to the more popular developed islands. Based in the north eastern corner of mainland Greece, Halkidiki combines lively towns brimming with tourist facilities with undeveloped beaches and tranquil fishing villages. The region is comprised of a three-pronged peninsula on the Aegean Sea, which boasts 400km of stunning beaches and an attractive green backdrop along its varied coastline.
Suitable for couples and families, the area remains a favourite with the locals, with Halkidiki home to a number of diverse resorts, from Kallithea, the liveliest destination, to the simple charm of quiet Polichrono. As well as swimming and sunbathing, there’s plenty to do throughout the region, from exploring lush green olive groves and vineyards on scenic country walks, to touring ancient sights and attractions nearby. The pace of life is generally low-key, with nightlife and entertainment revolving around bustling tavernas and waterfront cafes each evening.
