Our Special Readings
Colors and secrets of Sithonia
Known for its three peninsulas, Halkidiki is a beach paradise with beautiful sandy shores and crystal clear waters. This northern region is so beautiful that it is a real alternative to the famous Greek islands and some of its landmarks are equally popular with tourists. Like Halkidiki, nowhere! This is a funny phrase, which makes no sense in English, but it is very common in Greece when someone wants to describe this special place that is actually Halkidiki.
As mentioned, it consists of 3 smaller peninsulas, the first is called Kassandra and has many trendy clubs and bars on the beach; the second one, Sithonia, is more family oriented with wonderful beaches, one after the other! And the third, Agios Oros or Holy Mountain, is the most silent and literally could not be quieter than that. It has no bars, clubs, hotels, not even women, which is probably why it’s so quiet! Only monasteries! But joking aside, let’s focus on the second peninsula, which combines incredible beaches with incredible nature!
Sithonia is at the center of the Halkidiki peninsula and was named after Sithonas, son of the sea god Poseidon. It is very popular with travelers who want nature and tranquility. The road infrastructure is not so great and probably does not have the same entertainment scene as those in Kassandra, but it is certainly an exceptional place to fully explore.
People call this peninsula a symphony of green and blue, because these are the colors that surround you all the time. The rich vegetation drops down swirling until it reaches the blue of the Aegean Sea. The beaches are separated by high cliffs forming many small coves and bays, all beautiful and with a crystal clear sea. The beaches are full of life and if you like snorkeling you can enjoy the view of fish passing, small octopuses and sea snails.
In any case, pine trees meet sandy beaches and picturesque fishing villages that stand out among beautiful bays. Obviously you will have to rent a car and drive along the coast. It could take more than a day to see everything, so organize a long stay in Sithonia to discover all its secrets.
