Halkidiki Luxury Holidays: an Overview

Located on the Greek mainland in the northern Aegean, Halkidiki is easily recognisable on a map by the trident-like peninsulas that jut into the sea.

Why we think you’ll love it

If you're looking for the ultimate in family holidays, look no further than Halkidiki. It even has 'kid' in the title.


Our guide to holidays in Halkidiki

The westernmost of these is called the Kassandra Peninsula, and it's here that families will find a self-contained world that has everything they could possibly require from a family beach holiday and plenty more besides.

The middle prong of Sithonia is home to several more lovely and secluded beaches, many only accessible by boat, and sites of cultural interest such as Agios Athanasios and Sikia, famous for its windmills.

The north-eastern peninsula is known simply as Mount Athos, an autonomous region of Greece and UNESCO World Heritage Site famed for its beautiful ancient monasteries, and somewhere to visit if lying on beautiful beaches under bright blue skies were ever to become boring.
