A popular destination for holidaymakers looking for great resorts and amazing beaches, behind the pine trees that line the coastline, you’ll find fascinating history, beautiful villages, rolling olive groves and most importantly delicious food.

Our guide to Halkidiki

With over 550 kilometres of serene coastline, and most of Greece’s Blue Flag-listed beaches surrounding the peninsula of Halkidiki, there are numerous places to kick back and relax in the sun a cold drink firmly in hand. Sani, Kalamitsi and Agios Ioannis are some of the more popular beaches, and for good reason. The aquamarine waters and the golden sand form a true haven for sun-soakers and sports-enthusiasts alike. The coast allows for both motorised activities such as water skiing and parasailing, as well as non-motorised water sports like kayaking, windsurfing and snorkelling.
   Further inland from the resorts and the sea, you can experience the strong traditions, history and great local produce of the surrounding countryside. Visit the ruined city of Olynthos, the archaeological museum in the peninsula’s capital of Polygyros, as well as Aristotle’s Park, which is a theme park dedicated to the region’s famous native polymath. You can also choose to explore the Cave of Petralona, where the skull of a 200,000 year old primitive man was found, or head on a boat tour around Mount Athos to see the ancient monasteries perched on the steep cliffs.  
   The countryside is known for its tasty home-grown delicacies. Vineyards, olive trees, orchards and honeybees abound the area, and visits to these will let you sample deliciously thick honey, crisp wine and sweet marmalade among other treats. After having sampled these, it’s time to head back into town for dinner at a local café or restaurant while the sun slowly descents behind Mount Cholomontas.
