Halkidiki holidays

Oozing culture and history, and offering a seafront to make you swoon, this slice of tucked-away Greece is great for all ages. Aside from brilliant beaches, this coastal pick is a trio of peninsulas all about traditional culture, laid-back tavernas and bars, and generally just relaxing in the warm climate.

Biscuity beaches 

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 Flag suntrap - Halkidiki's number one in Greece for them! Shallow waters make this portion of the Greek coastline super for the little ones.

Historic haven

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.

Leisurely lifestyle

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.

Pefkohori

A charming location harnessing all things typically Greek, Pefkohori tends to work at a slower pace.

Afitos

With a traditional church – domed roof and all – and entwined with a maze of cobbled streets, Afitos is a picturesque village with hours of exploration beckoning.

Sani

Modern luxury, ivory sands and the faint sounds of jazz meet in sublime Sani.

Hanioti

A cream coastline dissolves into a modern village fit for postcards. Here in the pretty village of Hanioti, you’ll discover a really rustic aesthetic.

Nea Moudania

The second largest town in Halkidiki, and home to everything from traditional, ogle-worthy top sights to a large shopping area of stores and stall-dotted markets, Nea Moudania has something to suit all sorts of culture-hunters.

Potidea

Potidea is a compact yet modern choice for shoppers and sightseers alike. With all the ingredients of a calm Greek resort, you’ll find a seafront jewelled with blue and green tones, which amps up the pull of Potidea.

Gerakina

Sitting pretty near to central Sithonia, there’s a lot to see in Gerakina.

Kriopigi

If an attractive coastal village encased with olive groves and crystal clear waters sounds great, you’ve got yourself a winner in Kriopigi.

Kalithea

Step into animated Kalithea, a cool resort with all the after-dark trappings of a Greek island favourite.

Polichrono

Adorned with cobalt waves, crisp white sands and nuggets of rich greenery, you’ll feel right at home in this charismatic town.

Paliouri

Quiet and understated, you’ll be totally relaxed in this inviting village. In the foot of the pine trees and mountains on the Kassandra peninsula, Paliouri oozes traditional charm.

Ouranoupolis

The old-fashioned nature of this sleepy village means you’ll get relaxing, calm and authentic all tumbled into one.

Beaches

Jersey is lined with rocky coastline and picturesque bays. When you set eyes on the golden sand and bright blue waters, you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re not in one of the sizzling Spanish beach resorts! Enjoy relaxing in a beach-side café as you watch the world go by.
