Get digging around in the beige sands of Halkidiki’s beaches. With 550km of tempting shoreline, you’re guaranteed a secluded spot in the shade or a marvellous Blue-Flagged suntrap. Shallow waters make this portion of the Greek coastline super for the little ones.
The remarkable resort ticks all the boxes for adventurous culture-seekers. The wowing site of ancient Olynthos, along with Aristotle’s birthplace in Stagira, are among the amazing archaeological sites right at your fingertips. Thessaloniki has a long list of museums to discover, too.
From meandering around the cultural hotspots to heading to chilled-out bars and eateries and dining like a local, Halkidiki is refreshingly calm. It’s great if you’re seeking solace, sandcastles and splendid weather away from the buzz of your typically busier Greek destinations.
