About the location
Nestled in Halkidiki’s trio of peninsulas is the historic village of Gerakini, full of Greek charm with an easy-going, small-town feel. In between the peninsulas of Kassandra and Sithonia, Gerakini is fringed with fragrant olive groves and pine-covered hills, with beautiful views of its nearby peninsulas. The village has a long, narrow beach with bucket and spade-ready sand and lovely warm, shallow water. Friendly, relaxed and traditionally Greek, the village is just the thing for a peaceful break with a handful of warm and welcoming tavernas and plenty of day trip-worthy attractions nearby. Save a day for exploring Olynthos, a mythical Greek city that dates back to the 7th century.
