5 Best Places for Family Holidays in Kassandra

Halkidiki is a region abounding with assets promising a great vacation for everyone. Kassandra and Sithonia are two main holiday destinations. Yet, other regions offer a lot to explore. Either way, warm sea, clear water and pleasant climate will welcome you everywhere.

Kassandra Peninsula is ideal for family vacations in particular. In this article, we’ll describe 5 best places for family holidays in Kassandra, Halkidiki.


Kriopigi is a tranquil place set in a lush environment. It overlooks steep, forested hills and clear, blue sea. More so, one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Halkidiki nests at the base of the hill. People with very small kids can use free Hotel Kriopigi’s train to travel between the hotel and the beach. Kriopigi has all necessary facilities.


Polychrono is another settlement popular among families. It has a long beach and a seaside promenade next to it. Many bars, restaurants and shops line the promenade and the surrounding streets. Facilities for children’s entertainment are also available. Getting around is easy since occasional rises aren’t steep. The waters are shallow for the most part.


Hanioti is the largest settlement of Kassandra. Yet, it is so well laid out, which prevents the slightest chance for you to become lost while getting around. Entertaining facilities for children are many, as well as those for shopping and dining. The beach is somewhat narrower than in Polychrono, but still long. There is a large park next to the seaside promenade in the center of Hanioti.


Pefkohori is another main settlement of Kassandra, Halkidiki. In many regards, it is similar to Polychrono and Hanioti. It has a long beach, many shopping and entertaining opportunities and all the necessary facilities. Just note that, if you come by car, Pefkohori is the most problematic for finding a parking spot.

Nea Skioni

Nea Skioni, farther to the southwest, is a small village with the marina and a beautiful waterfront. Albeit opportunities for shopping and children’s entertainment aren’t as many, they would do. The beach is sandy and the waters are shallow here, too.
