Holidays to Hanioti take you to a purpose-built village in Halkidiki. Here you’ll find a lively shopping and nightlife scene, plus a 5-kilometre stretch of white-sand beach.
A little village with lots going on
This village on Halkidiki’s western peninsula has an old-fashioned feel, thanks to its winding streets and café-lined square, complete with little fountain. But it’s actually a pretty modern affair. That means you’ll find all the trappings of a 21st-century town like large shopping centres and bustling cafés and restaurants – they’re mostly along the main road, which stretches for over a mile. There are late-night bars and shops down here, but the real star turn is the white-sand beach.
A Blue Flag winner
The narrow white-sand-and-shingle beach stretches all the way to Pefkohori, 5 kilometres away. There are stones near the water’s edge so Flip flops may be in order, but once in the sea you’ll find it’s as warm and clear as a bath. You’ve got several trendy beach bars serving up drinks and snacks, and at one end of the sands there’s a park lined with shade-giving pine trees.
Daytrips to Thessaloniki
You’re about a 90-minute drive from Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-biggest city and the capital of Macedonia. It’s got a history going back some 2,300 years, with the museums, churches and landmarks to prove it, and these days it’s considered Greece’s cultural HQ. Meanwhile, there are some top-class restaurants and cafés down by the port.
