Dreamstime L 24700813 Scenic Bay At Halkidiki Peninsula In Greece

Escape the daily grind with a summer Sun holiday to Northern Greece’s beautiful mainland beach resort of Halkidiki. This three-fingered peninsula plunges into the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea; our holiday will take us away from Greece’s more popular holiday islands to arguably one of the greatest unspoilt areas of the Greek coastline.

Halkidiki

Surrounded by the warm Aegean Sea blessed with natural beauty Halkidiki is a trio of peninsulas made up of long sandy beaches, whitewashed villages and stunning mountain scenery. The western peninsula of Kassandra with the perfect combination of stunning beaches and traditional villages; is the most popular with tourists. Sithonia is the quieter middle peninsular and although still boasting beautiful beaches, there is a more laid back feeling here. The landscape is a little more rugged than its western peninsular neighbour, and offers stunning views of Mount Athos from the east coast. The eastern peninsular is Athos; this fascinating region is largely undeveloped and most of the peninsula is home to 20 monasteries and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors are not allowed here, however a boat trip can be taken around its shores.

Greece’s best kept secret

We are based in the up and coming seaside town of Kalithea on the east coast of the Kassandra peninsula. The long sandy beach is backed by lush greenery and is just a short walk from the main village. We can spend our days here relaxing on one of the ample sunloungers and people watch until dinner time. For those that like to partake in the beach activities, a number or watersports equipment like jet-skis and water-skiing are available for hire (additional costs). If we are feeling peckish while on the beach, a number of beachside snacks bars are around selling delicious Greek food. For those that want to venture out and see more of the resort, the traditional village of Afitos is just 5 minutes away. Here we can find small squares, cobbled streets and traditional tavernas creating beautiful scenery with natural landscape. When the sun goes down, the town really comes to life! For the party animal amongst us, the main strip is the place to go; lined with Brit style pubs and late night bars. For something more sophisticated, a few relaxed drinks in the hotel bar overlooking the sea

Out and about

With so much history on the mainland, there are number of sightseeing options not to miss. Greece’s second largest city; Thessaloniki is roughly an hour and half away from our hotel. Don’t be fooled by its modern metropolis, as here we can find a host of Byzantine monuments. A photo stop at the city’s symbol; “The White Tower” is a must. No visit to Halkidiki would be complete without a cruise around the stunning Mount Athos peninsula. The magnificent architecture of the old monasteries is listed as a UNESCO’s World Heritage site. Since no women are allowed to enter the 1000 year old monasteries, this is the only opportunity for us to get close.

This cruise is the only opportunity for women to get this close to Athos, since they are not allowed to enter the monasteries.

City tour of Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and was founded in 315 BC. The city’s history spans some 2.300 years. Therefore, it is home to numerous notable Byzantine monuments – most of them listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as several Roman, Ottoman and Sephadic Jewish structures. We will also visit the “White Tower” – the city’s symbol for a photo stop, see the Cathedral of St Dimitrios, the castle walls and the Acropolis. We will walk among the Roman ruins, the churches, the monuments and the neoclassical buildings.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
24°C May 29°C Jun 21°C Oct

Dress Code
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear
