Halkidiki holidays receive far less attention compared to that of their Greek counterparts. These holidays are based along a three-pronged peninsula in Northern Greece which holds a varied Greek holiday. The unspoilt resort boasts sun-drenched sandy beaches, neighboured by traditional Greek villages and historical monuments. Halkidiki holidays are some of the best holidays in all of Greece and it is easy to see why. Each peninsula has its own personality but all beaches are framed by crystal clear waters. Every peninsula has something different to offer and they range in their abundance of beauty and history. Some sights on the easternmost peninsula require a cruise along its shores as it can not be visited by any ordinary traveller. All areas of Greece, and Halkidiki are rammed with historical ruins and sites that are imperative to view on a visit there, but it is difficult to fit it all in.
Holidays in Halkidiki
Halkidiki’s main attraction is its beautiful unspoilt surroundings. The development of the areas has been relatively restrained which means traditional Greek beaches, traditional Greek cuisine and beautiful unspoilt Greek villages, towns and history. To find Halkidiki beaches completely untouched by the corporate brush of the West, the Sithonia peninsula is a definite visit. If, on your holiday to Halkidiki, more mainstream beaches are required, the beautiful Kassandra Peninsula will provide. Even though every peninsula varies, each one boasts traditional Greek cuisine and provides nothing but the best in Greek food. Moussaka, Mezes, stuffed vine leaves, spicy keftedes, and mounds of taramasalata dip. With this, there is freshly caught fish to think about; Calamari, red mullet, swordfish, octopus are just a tip of the iceberg that is caught and served daily.
Halkidiki nightlife also takes on the more relaxed Greek style. The nightlife consists of more romantic waterfront strolls after a visit to one of the local Greek fish restaurants. Visiting the smaller resorts of Sani beach, this is especially the case, where a night usually revolves around a candlelit meal, then a short stroll to a local Greek taverna to enjoy a drink and to watch the world pass by on the beachfront. If a more lively night is what you are after, the liveliest nightlife can be found in the Halkidiki resort of Kallithera.
