With a wealth of glorious beaches, charming villages, and activities from bird watching to boat trips, there is much to do.
Halkidiki is the ultimate family holiday destination, appealing to everyone thanks to its friendly and welcoming atmosphere and stunning natural scenery.
Grown-up families: Chill on the sandy beach or tear across the water jet-skiing in Kallithea. After a hard day in the sun, head out to lively local tavernas and bars.
Alternatively why not take a trip to the intriguing Cave of Petralona, adorned with stalactites and stalagmites, is a great day out for families. To learn more about the numerous fossils discovered within the cave, visit the anthropological museum located next door.
Relaxing: Seeking divine inspiration? Sail around the coast of holy Mount Athos, ruled by 1700 black-robed monks. You can't step ashore, but a boat trip gives you close-ups of some 20 medieval monasteries clinging to forested cliffs. The site is UNESCO World Heritage Site based around its ancient and sacred monastery, which has been significant since Byzantine times. Situated in a beautiful tranquil location, admission is strictly limited but a boat trip can provide spectacular views of the site as well as great photo opportunities.
Romance: Meander through cobbled alleys perfumed with flowers in Afitos. As the sun goes down, candles flicker in family-run tavernas on the village square - perfect for an intimate dinner. Wander hand in hand through the nearby city of Thessaloniki. You'll find numerous shops where you can treat your other half before enjoying an intimate meal in one of the bustling city's many restaurants.
