Escape the crowds and visit tranquil Halkidiki

In just over three hours from UK airports, you could be sunning yourself under a thatched parasol on the white sand beaches of Halkidiki while the kids splash around in the delightful Aegean Sea.

The most developed of the three-fingered peninsula is its first digit, Kassandra, where you'll find the plush resort of Sani. Sani boasts an upmarket marina, plenty of watersports along its Blue Flag beach and spectacular areas of natural beauty to run wild. Further along the peninsula, if you're looking for a laid-back family break close to an authentic Greek Village, Kalives serves up king-size beaches backed by rolling hills and a town is full of rustic charm.

Head south from Kassandra and you'll find the more lively resort of Hanioti. The picturesque village's narrow streets are lined with restaurants and an abundance of family-friendly activities away from the beach.

Best family friendly beaches

Wrapped in white sand beaches that gently slope into warm, transparent water, Halkidiki offers idyllic beaches for those travelling with younger children. Offering a variety of watersports and beach games, Nea Moudania's golden beach also includes striking views across the Aegean to Mount Olympus and plenty of tavernas serving up authentic eats.

The five-kilometre long beach in Hanioti is incredibly popular with families and with good reason. Its Blue Flag status, multitude of watersports – from relaxing pedalos to windsurfing and scuba diving – and shaded area of pine trees offer plenty to do plus some welcome shade from the midday sun.

Another Blue Flag number, Sani Beach is part of an ecological reserve boasting pristine sand and uncompromising views across the sea. Lined with sunloungers and parasols, all the usual watersports happen here as well, along with excursions to the Mytilene ship wreck.

Best family activities in Halkidiki

Bordering Mount Athos on the third prong in the peninsula, Ouranoupolis is a low-key affair with few tourists. Take a boat trip around the spectacular coast, wander through nature reserves or climb the Byzantine watchtower for impeccable views of the ancient hilltop monasteries. In nearby Stagira, little ones are invited to follow in the footsteps of Aristotle and test out interactive physics instruments at Aristotle's Park.

As the regions hub for activities with children, you'll have no trouble keeping the kids busy in Hanioti with mini-golf, go karting and soft play areas, not to mention all the fun to be had on its white sand beach. On the outskirts of Thessaloniki, around half an hours drive from Nea Moudania, Waterland Waterpark is another exciting venture. The enormous park is one of the largest in Greece offering exhilarating slides, splash pools, restaurants and a small zoo.
