Over the years, it has become the most popular and fun-loving of Halkidiki’s three sunny peninsulas, with its many and varied locations for bars, tavernas, restaurants, clubs, concerts, summer festivals and non-stop nightlife.

Want to leave the crowds behind and get back to nature? The rugged, mountainous, dramatic landscape of Sithonia – Halkidiki’s middle peninsula, situated between Kassandra and Mount Athos – has an alluring, untamed beauty that is popular with lovers of peace, quiet and the great outdoors. Sithonia is a symphony in green and blue with its valleys and pine forests, picturesque fishing villages and azure skies. It’s also famed for its golden beaches, such as Portokali, Azapiko, Tristinika and Korakas. And once you’ve climbed Mt Dragoudelis, its highest peak, you’ll be rewarded with a sublime view over the entire area – and the stately, neighbouring Mount Athos, of course.
Set mythology aside, Mount Athos is famous for another reason. That’s because it’s home to the oldest monastic community in the world – one which has detached itself from the rest of civilisation, keeps Byzantine time and uses the Julian calendar. Altogether, 20 monasteries and hundreds of cloisters, houses and hermitages dot this awe-inspiring landscape which, with its valleys, gorges and ravines, is so beautiful it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. The slopes of Mount Athos are home to approximately 2000 monks, who live in fortified architectural marvels and who safeguard, catalogue and restore holy treasures such as paintings, murals, manuscripts, embroideries, icons and historical relics.
