The best time of year to book your last minute holiday
Like most popular Mediterranean holiday hotspots, the high season in Halkidiki coincides with the summer months between May and September, when the island will feel busiest. Luckily, Halkidiki is hot all year round, so even the ‘colder’ months of low season make this a fine last minute escape. Low season also sees lower prices – and our last minute deals always capture the best of the bunch, especially if you book within eight weeks of your preferred departure date. You can use the categories on our website to sift through late deals and useful updates.
With sand, sun and quick deals, Halkidiki is Greece at its last minute best
With direct flights from the UK arriving in just three and a half hours, you can spend some time mulling over the finer points of your holiday on the flight.
Halkidiki has received lots of investment in the last few years, making it a burgeoning destination of choice. This up-and-coming status means you don’t need to plan everything months in advance to get in on the action.
Said to be the birthplace of Aristotle, classic architecture is found in abundance here – especially in traditional Kalithea, whose plazas can be wandered at your leisure. Meanwhile, Hanioti is a hub of small-town bustle, complete with beach sports and the nearby Waterland park. Alternatively, a last minute break to Polichrono promises a long beach built for sunbathing.
Overlooking the community and expansive sea on a pretty hillside, these Polichrono apartments make a last minute holiday a picturesque one. A 0-minute stroll takes you to the nearby shingle beach or the town centre. Meals in the restaurant are supplemented by a weekly barbecue, so you can dine in the lovely weather before returning to your poolside lounger or your room's personal balcony for more time in the sun.
