Secluded coves, lush forests and azure waters – welcome to Halkidiki's peninsulas.
Halkidiki's peninsulas stretch out into the Aegean Sea, like the trident of Poseidon. Though all boast a wealth of sun-kissed sandy shores, each has a character of its own; Kassandra is the most luxurious, Sithonia is the quiet one, and Athos stands proud with Mount Athos, a men-only monastic mountain state of 2,000 monks. Athos may be closed to most visitors, but Kassandra and Sithonia offer more than enough entertainment to make Halkidiki worth a trip.
Located on the westernmost peninsula of Kassandra, the Sani Dunes resort was recently named the World’s Leading Luxury Green Resort at the World Travel Awards. Not only is it a haven of stunning natural beauty, but it's also making efforts to preserve all that nature for future generations. As for the luxury part: lavish suites, a personal concierge, exclusive service on a private beach, and Volvo tours of the peninsula with a private driver take care of that.
If you're seeking seclusion and tranquility, Sithonia is the ideal destination. The calmer of the three peninsulas, you can swim in the pristine waters around Diaporos, an uninhabited island off the coast of Vourvourou, and visit Palia Nikiti, a beautiful 7-centuries-old village. Here, the blossom-filled courtyards and balconies create the ultimate in romantic nostalgia.
