Luxury Halkidiki Holidays

Traditional Grecian charm


This three-pronged peninsula juts out into the northern Aegean from mainland Greece. Although you'll find a sprinkling of luxe properties tucked away – most of Halkidiki's 300-mile coastline has ducked clear of development – you'll still find goats wearing tinkly bells and countryside zigzagged with mule tracks. The beaches here are some of the best in Greece, too, with 71 of them awarded Blue Flag status.

The westernmost finger of the peninsula is Kassandra. The landscape here is a patchwork of olive groves and pine forests, which lead down to flour-soft sands. You'll find the 1,000-acre Sani resort here, which comes with views across the water to Mount Olympus. 

Sithonia is the peninsula's middle prong. It's got a bit more of a rugged feel to it, with secluded coves and walking trails that lead through wildflower-filled countryside. It looks over to the third peninsula, Mount Athos. Home to Byzantine monasteries and unspoilt beaches, access is limited, so the best way to see it is from the water.

Destinations in Halkidiki
Kassandra’s beaches and villages are the most sought-after spots in Halkidiki. A Roman canal slices the peninsula from mainland Greece – and that’s just a taster of its 700,000-year-long history.
Ouranoupolis is the gateway to Mount Athos – a sacred peninsula for Orthodox pilgrims. The village itself lays out sandy beaches, a working fishing harbour and a pirate tower.
Sani Resort
Sani is a luxe resort and nature reserve on the north-west coast of the Kassandra peninsula. It rolls out 1,000 acres of sand-side beach clubs, sea-view swimming pools and stylish forest suites. 
Sithonia is a long peninsula, so you get a double helping of coastlines – along with sandy beaches, polished ports and windmill-topped bays.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Halkidiki is around 3 hours.

When to go

May to September is Halkidiki’s main beach-going season. Temperatures hover in the comfortable early- to mid-20s throughout the shoulder months (May and September), which are often good for fewer crowds and quieter hotels. Things start heating up in July and August, when the temperature can get into the early 30s.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy. 

Louise Burling

Halkidiki is fantastic is you're looking for a beach holiday with added culture. Whether it's heading into the city of Thessaloniki for the day, taking a boat trip to view the monastery at Mount Athos, or shopping at Nea Moudania's market, there are lots of ways to experience a taste of authentic Greece.
