A well kept secret in the Greek islands, Halkidiki is a veritable paradise for holidaymakers. Successfully managing to keep its traditional charm, Halkidiki is excellent for those holidaymakers who want to get away from the grind of daily life and enjoy some much needed relaxation. The laid back atmosphere doesn’t mean there is nothing to do though as there are plenty of attractions available for you to enjoy, including great shopping, fantastic restaurants and even the occasional nightclub. All of this is coupled with blissful beaches, a warm welcome and of course the beautiful weather we’ve come to expect from Greece.
Unlike other European holiday destinations, Halkidiki has managed to keep a more laid back atmosphere and is ideally best suited for those looking to experience an authentic taste of Greece. Relaxation is available in spades and there are plenty of beaches for you to relax on, from secluded coves to wide swathes of sand shelving gently into azure blue waters. The busier beaches even offer some exciting water sports for those who don’t want to laze in the sand, but prefer to enjoy something more exhilarating.
Back on dry land there is still plenty to do, including a lot of shopping. You can pick up everything from the usual touristy trinkets for those left behind in the cold, great handmade jewellery and local produce. For shopping in a great atmosphere, you might want to try the market, full of exotic sounds, sights and smells.
Food too, is readily available and utterly delicious, not surprising since Greece prides itself on its fantastic produce. The restaurants are full of freshly caught fish and locally produced vegetables and local delicacies like Souvlaki are well worth a try.
As the sun goes down, the entertainment keeps going, so visitors are able to experience the great atmosphere at the local bars and nightclubs. The bars range in liveliness from quiet bars for an evening tipple to cocktail bars and live music venues.
Kalithea is an excellent holiday destination for guests of all tastes, providing great weather, a fantastic atmosphere and delightful amenities. Those seeking relaxation will find themselves at home on the sandy beaches, lazing in the sand with a good book. Entertainment is available too, with a great number of traditional and international restaurants, great friendly bars and even the occasional disco.
