Luxury Kassandra Holidays

Beaches and a bubbly vibe

Kassandra

The most populated of Halkidiki’s trio of peninsulas, Kassandra combines the jaw-dropping beauty of the region with nightlife, culture and a bubbly vibe.

The westernmost tip of Halkidiki, Kassandra juts out into the startlingly blue sea with a seemingly endless coastline. The beaches are some of the best around, with a generous helping of Blue Flags. The calm and clear waters are great for scuba diving, and sands are fringed with a string of silvery olive groves.

Kassandra’s got the goods when it comes to culture, too. It hosts two major festivals in the summer, and you’ll find a mix of upbeat bars thrown in with the traditional Greek tavernas and restaurants. Try a fishing harbour town like Nea Moudania for the peninsula’s famous fresh seafood.

As for history, you’ve got monuments like the 2,000-seater amphitheatre, which doubles as a concert venue in the summer months.

Leanne Hall

The Wednesday market in Nea Moudania is well worth a visit. You can pick up clothes, handmade jewellery and delicious, locally produced honey.

Flight Information

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

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Thessaloniki airport to Kassandra is approximately 35 minutes.

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 as high as 31°C. 

Visa Information

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

Tipping

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.
