 About Chalkidiki


Chalkidiki is a peninsula formed by the extension of Macedonia into the Aegean Sea.

The deeply indented coastline of 500km's forms four large gulfs. To the west lies the Thermaic Gulf and to the east is the Strymonic Gulf (or Gulf of Orfanou), while further to the south the shores of Chalkidiki are washed by the Kassandra (or Toroneos) Gulf and the Mount Athos (or Sigitikos) gulf, and nowhere inland being more than 40kms from the sea, Chalkidiki is rather like a huge island.

As a whole, the coastline of Chalkidiki is of outstanding natural beauty. Τhe combination of wooded landscape and the sea with pine trees running down to the water's edge and reflected in the calm sea is unique. The peninsula of Chalkidiki stretches around, and largely to the south of, the densely wooded mountain area of Holomontas (1165 meters).

The ever-present sea gives the place a mild, Mediteranean climate, and so the summer is longer than elsewhere in Northern Greece.

Apart from these natural beauties, Chalkidiki has been a place of cultural development ever since prehistoric times. Its vast wealth of archaeological treasures has caused it to be called "the Attica of Northern Greece".

Sunny golden beaches, deep and picturesque gulfs, traditional villages and modern tourist resorts, small islands and sheltered bays, rich history, competitive cultural heritage, and warm people, Mediterranean climate and magnificent natural beauty, this is today's Chalkidiki.
