While Halkidiki may not be as well known as some of the more popular Greek beach vacation destinations, it certainly is packed with everything that makes those other destinations so alluring and popular.
Halkidiki is a three-pronged peninsula that stretches out from the northern end of the Greek mainland and out into the Aegean Sea. Thanks to its position as one of the better kept secrets when it comes to Greek vacation sites, this entire region can offer travellers a lovely vacation with a much slower pace than other island beach destinations or resorts can offer. The slow pace actually comes in handy in Halkidiki because the scenery is some of the best, and most breathtaking in all of Greece. It also has the added bonus of allowing you the opportunity to soak in the picturesque scenery both along the wonderful coastline, as well as venturing more in-land.
Of all the three peninsulas, the westernmost one, Kassandra, tends to the be most popular destination with a lot of the tourist density filtering towards Hanioti. What really tends to draw tourists of all walks of life to this town is the quaint village square and its wonderful nightly markets. A lot of folks who stay in Hanioti end up checking out the purpose-built resort Sani. This wonderfully sophisticated resort is home to a Blue Flag rated beach, as well as a gorgeous marina that is usually stocked with yachts. Of course, on Kassandra there is also Kalithea, which is the most lively of the three, and the perfect vacation destination for anyone looking for a little more after-hours fun, in addition to the amazing natural scenery.
One peninsula over we have Sithonia, which is known as being a little more wild and a lot more rugged than its sister Kassandra. Because of the abundance of wildlife and rugged nature on the peninsula is home to many little fishing villages as well as pine forests that sprawl from one end of the peninsula to the other, making it more full of pine trees and resort rooms. All of this makes Sithonia the perfect vacation destination for those looking to soak in the great outdoors. With its many secluded coves and beautiful, picturesque bays dotted all along the coastline, as well as a plethora of walking trails that weave in and out of the inland, Sithonia will be an absolute haven for vacationers looking to get a little more close to nature.
The easternmost peninsula of Halkidiki is Mount Athos. This peninsula is a monastic republic and as such is strictly off-limits to any and all tourists. However, the gorgeous peninsula to be seen from Sithonia, as well as chartered boat tours that can take you on trips all around the shores of the peninsula.
