Halkidki is sought-after for its long sandy beaches and hilly landscapes, divided over its peninsulas also known as the “3 fingers”. The 1st finger peninsula is called Kassandra, this is the most developed holiday peninsula where you will find a lively atmosphere.
The 2nd finger called Sithonia less busy compared to Kassandra, so it’s a great option for those who enjoy a relaxed and quieter holiday. While the 3rd finger is untouched, the least developed peninsula, is mostly visited by the local tourists and is only partly accessible as Mount Athos is a monastic region.
