Chalkidiki: Blue waters, countless coves and beaches, lush landscape, and picturesque villages

It is only a few miles from Thessaloniki, the three peninsulas of Kassandra, Sithonia, and Athos. Chalkidiki caters to the needs of all travellers. There is exciting nightlife in Kassandra, tranquillity and exotic beaches in Sithonia, and a family friendly atmosphere in Athos. Adventure lovers will find more than 20 marked trails and 17 cycling routes that pass through the oak forests of Mt. Cholomon and the fir forests of Mt. Stratonikò (all parts of the Natura 2000 network). Off the coast of Chalkidihi are several whimsical islands that are within sailing distance and worth the visit. . The most popular island (and the only inhabited island) is Ammouliani, where you will find shallow, calm shores with sandy beaches.
