Tourists from all over the world flood in Halkidiki every summer and the numbers keep rising every year. So, why does everybody seem to love this weird shaped peninsula? First of all because it has the largest stretch of sandy beaches that are both populated and unspoiled in northern Greece and it is only a short car drive away from Thessaloniki airport. The Halkidiki coastline is of exceptional natural beauty with the combination of green landscapes that reach to the water’s edge and the crystal blue waters of its beaches. Surrounded by aromatic, evergreen, lush pine forests and colorful flower gardens, the Simantro Beach Hotel enjoys all the privileges of this breathtaking area.
The deeply indented coast of 500 km shapes four large gulfs and hundreds of smaller natural sand niches. Since the peninsulas are never wider than 40 km, Halkidiki is more like three long islands, so a beach is always close by. Discover the region’s major historical sights and monuments, including castles, monasteries and churches, testimonies of a great ancient civilization. With a unique climate of warm summer days and mild evenings, Halkidiki can only be described as an excellent choice for a relaxing and entertaining holiday. Our weekly Greek evening with live Greek music, folk dancing and wine is a great evening for the whole family.
The perfect activity for the lovers of history and action, also perfect for those who just love to stroll in a beautiful environment on a sunny day. Explore the natural landscape which is considered one of the oldest wine and olive oil growing areas. Halkidiki offers a variety of tours through some of the best wine routes in Greece. Breathtaking castles, Byzantine monasteries, green pine forests, famous wineries, vineyards, olive fields and sunflower valleys form the perfect landscape for unforgettable cycling tours.
