Photos of our favorite Chalkidiki (or Halkidiki) beaches are taken between May and September. We started back in 2011 with a tour around Sithonia beaches, then we continued with Cassandra beaches. In the past few years, we explored the Athos beaches as well.

Here are our favorite things to do on Halkidiki beaches

  • Snorkel to meet friendly fish and not so friendly sea urchins – beware where you step underwater!
  • Float in the shallow waters and absorb some vitamin Sea.
  • Lie on a sun chair and enjoy a cup of Frappe, made in Greek beach style!
  • Play the game with wooden rackets and a rubber ball to stay in shape.
  • Read a nice book that fits the summer beach atmosphere.
  • Stare at the endless blue sea and dream!

  1. Amazing! I have never been in Greece, but I have to 🙂

    • And it doesn’t seem very hard to get there from Sofia 😉

  2. They all look great! Looks like I have some beach hopping to do.

    • Absolutely! And in September they’re still good for hopping!

  3. All of these look like really promising beaches. Great getaways for some fun and frolic amidst sand and sea.

    • Yes, they are super cool getaways, especially those with very few people knowing of them! 🙂

  4. They all look beautiful, I’d love to beach hop here! With a nice frappe and a handsome greek guy please!

    Looks like I’ll need the whole summer in Greece to get to all the beaches… nothing wrong with that!

    • It would take a summer to cover just those around Chalkidiki! It would probably take years to go around every beach in Greece! What a blessing! 🙂

    I want to explore as many as I can! Haha..Which one is your most favourite?

    • It’s super hard to tell the favorite one – they are all so nice! We recently went to Emma beach – it’s tiny but amazing!
