The two peninsulas of Halkidiki, Sithonia, and Kassandra attract millions of travelers yearly. Let’s see them and their differences more closely.
Halkidiki is a spectacular part of north Greece that attracts many travelers yearly. It is an area known for the lush green forests, beautiful mountain landscapes, and stunning beaches.
Furthermore, it is an area with rich history and culture that one can see at every corner of Halkidiki’s towns and villages.
Halkidiki is quite famous thanks to the three peninsulas of Kassandra, Sithonia, and Athos. Athos is relatively inaccessible since most of it is part of the Holy Land or otherwise known as Agio Oros. Therefore, generally, people know or decide to stay for holidays either at Kassandra or Sithonia. Kassandra is the westernmost peninsula, while Sithonia is in the middle of the three.
Although they are facing each other, there are many differences between them.
The main difference between the two is that Kassandra is generally more cosmopolitan. At the same time, Sithonia still offers more wild natural landscapes. At Sithonia, you will have the chance to have more adventurous holidays with hiking tours or snorkeling and scuba diving.
While at Kassandra, you might enjoy a dip at the beach, which is right next to your hotel. Furthermore, it is more likely to enjoy a shopping spree or a good outing at one of the area’s great bars or clubs.
Generally, whether you choose to stay at Kassandra or Sithonia, you will enjoy your holidays immensely.
It is a matter of choosing between a more adventurous holiday of exploring Halkidiki’s wonderful nature or a relaxing time of swimming, shopping, and partying.
