Nostos Hotel

The Nostos Hotel is close to a peaceful beach and the lively centre of Kalithea. But, thanks to the hotel’s big pool, sea-view terrace and pool bar, you may find it hard to drag yourself away!

The hotel specialises in peace and quiet. The pool has an area that bubbles with whirlpool jets, while kids have a pool of their own. Inside, the spacious rooms strike a balance between modern and traditional, with streamlined, neutral-coloured decor and tiled balconies.

The pool bar serves a continental breakfast in the morning. As the sun goes down, it turns into a Greek taverna that serves home-cooked specialities, plus there’s the occasional barbecue and fish meze night.

Overview of Kalithea

Holidays to Halkidiki are perfect for beach lovers. The coastline on this stretch of Greece looks like it has been plucked straight from a magazine cover or a film set.

Aside from the brilliant beaches, the trio of peninsulas that make up Halkidiki are full of traditional culture, relaxing villages and laid-back tavernas where you can mingle with the locals.

The Nostos Hotel is located in Kalithea, but most of the resorts line the coast so it’s easy to hop between them all and explore.

Things to do in Halkidiki

The Nostos Hotel sits in a prime position. It’s only a 10-minute walk to the beach and the same distance from Kalithea.

The outstanding bay is the star of the show in Kalithea. As you lounge on the white sands, you can enjoy the views towards the neighbouring peninsulas.

Kalithea is much more cosmopolitan than some of its neighbours. There’s still a pretty old town with some ancient ruins, but there’s also a lively strip of bars, shops and restaurants. And if you don’t want the party to end, there’s an out-of-town nightclub. Kalithea literally translates as ‘good view’ – and during your stay, you’ll experience the best of them!

Resort Summary

Kalithea’s 1.5-kilometre, white sand beach looks out across the water towards the hills of Sithonia, giving an attractive silhouette to gaze on when you’re sunbathing under a straw parasol. The calm bay has a softly sloping seabed so swimming here is quite safe.

For more action, visit the watersports centre half way along the beach and you can hop on jet-skis, water-skis or take a banana-boat ride. All along the beach you’ll find bars serving drinks and snacks so you can grab a gyros and cold beer to take back to your lounger.

Or you might prefer relaxing on Kriopigi Beach, which is just a five-minute drive down the road to spend a quiet day in beautiful surroundings. Awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness, the beach is backed by dense pine forests.
