A real heaven on earth, with amazing natural beauty, clean seas, perfect beaches (most of which are awarded every year with a “Blue Flag” by the EU), beautiful forests, prehistoric, ancient and Byzantine monuments, traditional villages and modern tourist resorts-this is Kassandra, the first "leg" of Halkidiki peninsula.
Kassandra offers the visitor, a whole palette of colors and smells; diversity, turquoise waters, sandy beaches, hills and pinewoods, overwhelmed by the sweet smell of resin and thyme. Architecture is also a diversity; small churches, old monastery properties, traditional villages combine harmonically with modern holiday houses and touristic resorts. Kassandra is full of life, especially in the summer with vivid beach bars and night life (Kalithea, Pefhohori) as well as romantic sites for a sunset café (Afytos, Possidi) or lively playgrounds for the families (Kassandria, Fourka). Visit Afytos for it's charming panorama view and the art shops, have a late drink in Kallithea by night and of course swim at Possidi "Aigiopelagitika" and Paliouri "Xenia" -Blue Flag beaches.
