All things active
Keeping it simple, the main beach is one extensive strip of fine white, silky sands with a partially pebbly backdrop. Check out what’s underwater – Polichrono Beach is superb for snorkelling and getting up close and personal with sea anemones. A trek around Lake Mavrobara will occupy you on dry land.
Hit the road
The resort’s sleepy character is complemented by the slightly livelier neighbouring areas. You’ll want to hit Thessaloniki for its bright city vibe and amazing array of shops, while Fourka village is a great spot for strolls. Kalithea is another must for getting out by day and partying by night.
Eat like a Greek
There’s no better way to absorb the culture than to eat like the locals. The obvious favourites, souvlaki and tzatziki-doused dishes, are trumped by soutzoukakia – sumptuous spiced-meatballs – and galaktoboureko, a custard-filled pastry dessert. You’ll be totally in your element as you tuck into several courses of these Greek goodies.
