Located in Northern Greece, Chalkidiki consist of three peninsulas – Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos. Kassandra has organized beaches and more options for nightlife. The second leg Sithonia has less organized resorts, many sandy Blue flaged beaches and secluded coves. A very good option for a relaxing and quiet holiday. Athos is an autonomous monastic community with 20 orthodox monasteries, where only men are allowed to enter after special permission. But a boat trip from Ouranoupolis to Mount Athos is available for tourists.
