As long as it takes to eat a slice of watermelon

Halkidiki invites you to do the things you deserve most: sit back and relax, enjoy and indulge.

A place where the lush green of the land spills into the blue of the sea, the exotic getaway that has lived in your imagination for as long as you can remember is actually on your doorstep. 

Welcome to the paradise that is Halkidiki and prepare to be amazed by exotic views and clear blue waters that never fail to invigorate your senses.

There is just something about Halkidiki that sets it apart from the rest of Greece. It’s that special combination of out-of-this-world scenery, beaches for all moods, that heady mix of sea breeze and the scent of pine, the festivals that it hosts, the rich cultural history, the immense religious importance and the delightful cuisine.

Everyone’s idea of a holiday

Yes, it is often claimed of any holiday destination but Halkidiki really DOES have something for everyone. If it’s adrenaline you crave, it can be a vibrant sun-soaked cauldron of activity that dares you to keep pace and stay young. After choosing from a seemingly endless range of beach sports, you can top off the day by sampling the nightlife. 

If you come as a family, you can expect fun and adventure, as well as a warm welcome, and to make the most of your precious time together. Then, if you’re looking for something a little more sedate, simply put your feet up, indulge yourself, be pampered in one of numerous high-end accommodation options; perhaps an early evening round of golf or cocktails by the pool.

A dream that’s real

Mythology talks of battles between gods and giants in Halkidiki. Visit any one of the three fingers of the peninsula, Kassandra, Sithonia or the renowned monastic retreat of Mount Athos and the charming sense of mystery and magic still hangs palpably in the air. 

Indeed, there can be something almost dreamy about your time there and perhaps this more than anything is the essence of exoticism. So come and experience for yourself the place that has kept its authenticity, vibrancy and open-heartedness like no other.
