The Three Fingers

Halkidiki is shaped like a three-pronged fork spearing the Aegean Sea. Its trio of peninsulas jutting out from mainland Greece into the Aegean Sea means it has miles and miles of wraparound coast – and with it, plenty of sunbathing spots.

The first of the fingers is Kassandra, the most popular of Halkidiki’s peninsulas. Though Halkidiki destinations tend to stay pretty chilled out on the whole, Kassandra’s where you’ll find the region’s most lively spots, including bustling beaches and all night parties. It’s built up with tourists in mind, so you’ll find everything you need here.

Sithonia, the second of the fingers, is more rugged than its trendy big sister, with sloping green hills lining its coastline. Here is perfect for nature lovers and those who like quieter resorts, but still with everything you could need on hand.

Mount Athos, the most private of the three, is cordoned off from the public, though boat cruises around the peninsula still offer a sneaky peek.
