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.
Stunning Sithonia is the 2nd peninsula among the three-pronged so-called “legs” (by us, locals)! Crystal clear blue waters and the amazing “blue lagoon” in between Diaporos island and a smaller isle are the best spots for swimming and relaxing. We suggest a lunch basket for this trip.
Diaporos island is a small island with great beauty which is located just across Vourvourou. On the island extends a huge natural gulf of 700 meters length. Because of the shallow waters, the sea around the gulf remains always warm making the island a perfect destination for the winter swimmers. The Byzantine ruins at "Krifto" gulf reveal the long history of the island. Last but not least, the nature and the green pines that cover the whole island together with the crystal blue waters create a peaceful summer scenery.
