Things to do in Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki

Aristoteles lies just five minutes outside of the ancient town of Ouranoupolis. Meaning ‘Heaven’s City’ in Greek, its history dates back thousands of years and is the gateway to the monasteries and temples of Mount Athos. The town’s old stone walls house ancient buildings, traditional tavernas and narrow streets – perfect for souvenir hunting.

Sitting beside a fishing harbour and port, from here you can also take a boat excursion to the nearby Drenia Islands for coastal adventures and idyllic beaches.

Resort Summary

The peaceful village of Ouranoupolis will spoil you with its choice of sands to doze on. The main beach is a good stretch of golden sand, with plenty going on atop the waves, such as windsurfing, paragliding or canoeing.

However, there are plenty of quiet coves and beaches outside of the village to acquaint yourself with over the course of your Halkidiki holiday. To the north, Xenia is a peaceful strip backed by greenery or, four kilometres away, Kampoudi has heaps of space.
