Mount Athos / Halkidiki

Our boat rentals and water sports base is at Eagles Palace Hotel in Mt. Athos peninsula. Find us right on the beach!

A few words about our amazing location.

Halkidiki is a majestic three-pronged peninsula in Northern Greece where you can find endless hidden treasures. Its coast of 500 kilometers in length and the numerous islands and isles in the area wait for you to discover them. From Vourvourou, we highly recommend visiting Diaporos island, while from Ouranoupoli you should visit Ammouliani and Drenia islands.

A World Heritage Site and self-governed state in the Hellenic Republic, Mount Athos is home to 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries under the direct jurisdiction of the patriarch of Constantinople. Today Greeks commonly refer to Mount Athos as the “Holy Mountain” (Greek: Άγιον Όρος, Agion Oros), as it is home to monks. Women are not allowed at Mount Athos and please note that we are not aloud to approach it in less than 500m.

Ammouliani is a small, yet astonishing island right across from Mount Athos peninsula. Tradition is evident all throughout the island, with original folklore houses, trademark gastronomy and typical small gardens filled with astonishing natural goods. The very first settlers arrived back in the 1920’s, with roots from Minor Asia, bringing their cultural heritage with them. Isolated and magnificent beaches, vibrant food & entertainment options, and a mix of impressive vegetation & giant rocks make up for the ideal escape to the sole inhabited island of Halkidiki.

The Donkey Islands, also known as the Drenia Islands, are constituted of 6 beautiful small islands filled with incredible sandy beaches on a picturesque ‘’Greek summer’’ setting. Only one of them is inhabited. The Donkey Islands are an oasis of 6 spots of land placed upon the vast big blue of the world-renowned Greek seas. Their folklore name is attributed to the legend that locals used to bring their very old donkeys to the islands in order for the animals to die in a magnificent setting.
