According to mythology, Kassandra, the first peninsula of Halkidiki, was the site of the mythical Clash of the Titans. Today, Kassandra is home to Greece’s most modern tourist resorts.
You can find some of the largest hotel complexes in the country here, with amenities of the highest quality, such as golf courses, marinas and spas. You can also enjoy gourmet meals prepared by well known chefs.
It is also home to some of Greece’s best known organized beaches. Flogita, Athytos, Kallithea, Hanioti, Kryopiyi, Polyhrono, Pefkohóri, Paliouri, Posidi, Siviri, Sani, and Potidea have beaches with trendy beach bars!
If you need a bit of peace and quiet after a dancing session, hop in a car and discover some of the area’s untouched beaches. There’s no better way to recharge your batteries ready for the next party!
Those who are into hectic nightlife scenes might like to know that the Kallithéa area is home to some of the biggest best bars in Greece, while just about anywhere in Halkidiki you’ll find some nice quiet little bar which is just perfect to kick off your evening in.
The sand unfolds for miles and famed bars interfere with the pure white beach with fine sand in a verdant and hilly background. Famous for its atmospheric sunsets, Skala Fourkas is a modern touristic center with a nice beach and a plethora of rented rooms, fish-taverns and bars.
The spotless beach of Loutra with crystal waters and a golden sandy beach, is continuously awarded with the blue flag. Also in the region, many isolated beaches exist which are ideal for those who don’t particularly like crowds or like spear fishing and free diving.
The village of Kallithea, in the western coast of Kassandra, is a popular tourist destination, because of its marvelous sandy beach--most popular with the youth-- and its important archaeological and religious sights. Pure white sand, beach bars in the line and a pine rock that characterizes the beautiful creek, with tree branches lean in waters.
In the most southern part of the peninsula, this is a favorite destination for those who love free camping; caravans parked almost on the edge of the steep rocks with their owners enjoying the best view of the Aegean sea with the Sporades islands popping up on the horizon. If the atmosphere is clear, the ridges of mountain Pelion are visible.
