Halkidiki

Call 01242 547 821 to speak to a specialist Enquire


For a sense of Greece's rural identity, the unspoilt Halkidiki peninsula near Thessaloniki is definitely worth a visit. The area incorporates the kind of scenery and you would dream of when imagining coastal Greece; with beautiful beaches, blue skies, azure seas and sprawling pine forests, Halkidiki has some of the best scenery in the country.

Although it isn't as well-known as other Greek destinations, there is no better destination to settle in to the Greek way of life. With over 40 idyllic Blue Flag beaches stretching across more than 500km of coastline, numerous archaeological sites and plenty of sleepy little fishing villages, you'll be spoilt for choice.

Halkidiki, with its three-pronged peninsula jutting into the turquoise sea; conjures up thoughts of Poseidon's trident. Each 'prong' offers something different: Kassandra, with its white-sand beaches and pine headlands that wouldn't be out of place in the Caribbean has a wide range of hotels, tavernas and bars, while Mount Athos is a World Heritage Site home to over 40 monasteries that is only open for day trips. Rugged Sithonia, though, is the jewel in Halkidiki's crown. A tiny fishing village with sprawling pine forests and numerous walking trails, here you can choose to hire a boat and explore romantic coves or spend lazy days on deserted beaches before strolling down to the waterfront to enjoy the catch of the day for your supper.

Guest Testimonial

I want to thank you for all your help (Annie Jensen) and expertise on arranging our recent trip . Everything was well arranged and your in-country team was very efficient and helpful. Re hotels, Chris and I are still debating which hotel was the best, the Park Hyatt, the Ritz Carleton or the Palace. We have stayed at many 'grand' hotels around the world, but these three topped them all! We had to watch again last night "Lost in Translation." Best wishes to you for the coming holiday season. A&K is the best!

Best time to be there

The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.

Fly to

Athens and Thessaloniki (British Airways); Rhodes (easyjet); Heraklion, Santorini and Mykonos (British Airways to Athens and onward with Aegean Air)
