This triple-fingered peninsula in the north of Greece juts out into the Aegean Sea. It’s not as well-known as many of the other Greek holiday resorts, but that’s just its appeal. The region showcases some of the best – and most untouched – scenery in the country.
The Kassandra peninsula, to the west, is best known for its beaches, which are framed by emerald hills. It’s the most popular place to stay in Halkidiki, and the town of Hanioti is the kingpin in these parts. It’s a favourite with families lured by its laid-back village square and night-time markets. For neon-lit nightlife, meanwhile, nearby Kalithea hits the mark.
The next peninsula, Sithonia, is wilder and more rugged, with secluded coves giving way to untouched sandy bays. This is Halkidiki without its make-up – all tiny fishing villages and sprawling pine forests.
Lastly, there’s the mysterious Mount Athos, which has bewitched outsiders for centuries. The easternmost of Halkidiki’s peninsulas, this holy region is a land of monasteries, which are off limits to visitors. The only way to get a good look is to take a boat ride along its shores.
