Sandwiched between pine-covered mountains and the Aegean Sea, Kriopigi is a traditional Greek village with a choice of sandy beaches, ideal for couples and families looking for All Inclusive Halkidiki holidays. Its wooded scenery is ripe for walking and bird-spotting, while Kriopigi's quaint old town comes complete with a maze of small streets and there's also the remains of an ancient outdoor amphitheatre.
Kriopigi's beach is its main attraction. It's a long stretch with its widest point at the southern end, where the water is also deepest. Families tend to stay around the shallow waters at the narrower northern end of the beach, which also benefits from natural shade provided by the pine trees on the edge of the sand.
The journey from town to the beach is downhill and, while you can stroll back up to your hotel in 10 minutes, there's a mini-train which does the journey there and back throughout the day to save your legs.
All along this part of the coast small coves can be found where you can sink back in the sand and enjoy the peace of this popular Halkidiki destination. There are a few sports taking place in the water so you can hire a pedalo or go jet ski-ing a little further out. If you want more in the way of water action, Kalithea and Polichrono are a short bus-ride away and are particularly good for scuba diving.
