At about 120 kilometers from Thessaloniki, hidden from all the main tourist roads in Greece, lies one of the rare unexplored tourist destinations – the peninsula of Sithonia. From Thessaloniki, you follow the road to Chalkidiki, and after about one and a half-hour of the pleasant ride, you will arrive at Sithonia.
Secrets of Sithonia peninsula
Unlike other tourist regions, Sithonia doesn’t offer many top benefits of modern tourism. Here you will not be able to visit big fancy disco clubs or shop in large supermarkets and shopping malls, and still, you will find all you need, even more. As well as the rest of northern Greece, it is abundant in forests, paradise beaches, perfect climate, and crystal waters.
Don’t be fooled by the first impression that this part of Greece is not modern enough for you, because that exactly is its secret. Once you dig under the surface, it will, without fail, seem that you haven’t seen enough and you will feel the urge to explore more and return again.
Young Greeks from Thessaloniki rush to the camping resorts every weekend and enjoy Greece’s best non-stop parties.
The whole peninsula has quite a few little towns connected by camping resorts. It will revive the adventurer in you. It will make you want to explore the numerous beaches and stories hidden beneath.
The main road goes all around the peninsula along the coast and we are sure that the first tour around it will be enough for Sithonia to get to you.
We recommended that you come here by car (your own or rented).
