Where Is Halkidiki in Greece?

The triple-pronged peninsula of Halkidiki lies on the northeast coast of mainland Greece. The region forms its impressive characteristic shape with its three awe-inspiring capes of Kassandra, Sithonia, and Mount Athos that jut out into the Aegean Sea.

What Is Halkidiki Famous For?

One of the main summer destinations in northern Greece, Halkidiki’s incomparable natural beauty is like a siren’s call. Attracting those from near and far, people flock to this peninsula to experience its threads of golden beaches, warm waters, rolling green mountains, and rich forests aplomb with canopies of pine trees that provide a welcoming cool refuge from the scorching hot sun. Made up of three legs — the first leg, Kassandra, sees the heaviest influx of tourism where fully catered and highly facilitated tourist resorts are a ubiquitous sight. The middle prong, Sithonia, is broader and less touristy, but is aplenty with verdant valleys, mountainous villages, and mysterious hidden coves. The last prong is Mount Athos, a monastic community where women are banned from entering, and male visitors require a special permit to step onto the island. Although the island is a breathtaking combination of teal, blues, and greens, Halkidiki offers a lot more colorful experiences than one might think.
