The Chalkidiki region features three peninsulas, Kassandra, the most touristic one,
Sithonia, known for its numerous coves, and Mount Athos, an autonomous religious state, dotted with Orthodox monasteries, where entry is prohibited for women. Our base is located in Nikiti between the peninsulas of Kassandra and Sithonia. At a distance of 90 km from Thessaloniki, this small resort is home to many shops and restaurants and has a very long sandy beach.
Entirely covered with pine forests, the peninsula of Sithonia is less touristy than Kassandra. Starting from Nikiti, it offers beautiful white sand beaches with turquoise seas and little coves ideal for anchoring. At its extremity, the small
fishing port of Porto Koufo is one of the most sheltered in the Aegean Sea. On the east side, the island of Diaporos and many wild islets are a favorite destination for swimming. The island of Amouliani, near Mount Athos, is also worth visiting, and especially the beach of Alikes.
Even though it offers the same landscape of deserted coves and turquoise waters,
the largest island of Sporades is a lot wilder and has a completely different character from the rest of the archipelago. Skyros has preserved its identity, famous for its beautiful carved and painted furniture and ceramics.
The small port of Linaria has only a limited number of berths but it is very well equipped.The archipelago of the Sporades includes also many islands and uninhabited islets such as Kyra Panagia, Peristera and Skantzoura that offer good
anchorages in coves.
Lemnos is strategically located at the crossroads of maritime routes that crisscross the northern Aegean Sea, at the same distance from Mount Athos to the west and the Turkish coast to the east. Lemnos remains a quiet island off the beaten track, an ideal stop for those seeking a relaxing and authentic atmosphere. The island retains an unspoilt coastline and a limited urban development. There are two wonderfully shaped bays at the island. To the south, the Gulf of
Moudros forms a huge natural harbour while to the north there is the Bay of Pournias, a much smaller one. From either side of these blue bays, Lemnos reveals a surprising diversity of landscapes, a rugged side with many coves but also some small fishing ports and sandy beaches. Situated on the west coast, Myrina, the capital of the island, is a pleasant seaside resort of a normal size.
At only a short distance from the coast of Thrace, you can find the island of Thassos. A green Island with many beaches (do not miss the creek of Aliki), Thassos has many attractions that make it an ideal location. Before it became a simple tourist destination, it had been one of the most powerful centres of northern Greece, proof of which are the ruins and marbles of Limenas. You should definitely visit the Archaeological Museum, the ancient theatre and the acropolis.
The island of Samothrace belongs to the archipelago of the Northern Aegean Sea
and due to its remote location is still untouched by mass tourism. It charms history lovers and hikers who can swim amidst lush greenery, in amazing natural pools (Rema tou Fonia). Hora, the capital of the island, located inland and built on the mountainside in the form of an amphitheatre, is very picturesque. Do not miss the beaches of Pahia Ammos, Vatos, and Niki.
Located at the eastern end of the archipelago of the Sporades, Alonissos has been attracting more and more visitors, charmed by its beaches, coves and underwater caves, but also by the hospitality of the locals and the alternative to mass tourism. What’s more, a small colony of monk seals, one of the rarest mammals in the Mediterranean, lives in its beautiful marine park.
With coves lapped by turquoise water and numerous sandy beaches, Skiathos has
many attractions, making the island one of the main tourist destinations of the country. Therefore, Skiathos primarily appeals to lovers of seaside as well as nightlife. Do not miss the beaches of Koukounaries, Banana and the small island of Tsougria.
The small island of Agios Efstratios is located at a distance of 21 miles south of Lemnos, and is part of the 'unknown' islands of the northern Aegean Sea. Barely 300 people still live on this island where there was a violent earthquake in 1968.
Much less touristy than Skiathos, Skopelos is fast developing while at the same time preserving its authentic character. The island has beautiful beaches like the busy Stafylos beach as well as Agnondas, which occupies the bottom of a very steep-sided creek. Finally, Panormos, situated at the bottom of a deep bay lined with pine trees, is a great anchorage for yachts.
