Welcome to Halkidiki

Situated in the north of Greece, the Halkidiki region actually comprises three peninsulas, known as the three legs of Halkidiki. The first is Kassandra, the second is Sithonia, with fewer resorts and more secluded coves – and it's here that you'll find our superb featured resorts of Danai Beach and Eagles Palace. The third peninsula, Mount Athos, is a closed monastic community where entrance is allowed only to men – and even then, only after special permission has been granted.

The Sithonia peninsula is a true delight, since it's protected by conservation laws, and has many unspoilt villages and coastline areas; but if you'd like a little activity, visit Nikiti for its ancient buildings, local tavernas – and the lovely Nikiti beach, which has the best little coffee shops you could wish for! If you fancy a day in the city, it's worth the journey to historic Thessaloniki, Greece's second city, where you'll find international shops, a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and a wide choice of restaurants and tavernas.
