What to see and do on a Holiday to Halkidiki
Most of the action in Halkidiki takes place on the western peninsula of Kassandra. Here visitors will find pristine white sand beaches with crystal clear waters that are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving, rejuvenating thermal pools and saunas in Agia Paraskevi, historic stone houses in the traditional village of Afytos, and lively restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in Kalithea. Kassandra is an excellent choice for families or groups looking for a fun and exciting holiday next to the sea.
Travellers who are seeking a more tranquil holiday to Halkidiki can head to the Sithonia peninsula. This central finger of land boasts rugged coastlines dotted with cliffs and isolated sandy inlets where you can have fine sandy beaches all to yourself. In addition, there are many small fishing villages here where you can enjoy fresh seafood at small family-run tavernas along the waterfront.
One of the most interesting attractions in Halkidiki is Petralona Cave. This small chamber at the foot of a mountain was the resting place of two of Europe’s oldest hominid skeletons, which have been dated to a whopping 800,000 years. Archaeologists have also found traces of fire in the cave, as well as fossils of animals including lions, bison, bats, and birds. Today visitors can explore the interesting stalactite and stalagmite formations in the cool interior of this important prehistoric site.
