Halkidiki Kassandra tour by SKG BUS transfers & tours. Kassandra is the first out three peninsulas of Halkidiki which run into the Aegean Sea. Its ancient name was Pallene and represents many centuries of history as rest of Greece. It surely is the most popular during summer and well known for the intense nightlife and packed beach bars. Sometimes it suffers from traffic congestion especially during August weekends.
We jumpstart our excursion early morning by picking you up from you hotel. After approx. 45 minutes driving we are entering Halkidiki region and our very first stop is Potidea. An ancient city founded by Corinthians around 600 BC. Potidea is built at the narrowest point of the peninsula so a canal was opened around 100 AD to facilitate navigation and trade. Having a 30 minutes visit to the ancient Potidea and the canal we proceed to our next stop.
Nea Fokea is a seaside picturesque village with a great history as well along with the well preserved byzantine tower of Saint Pavlos. Plenty of cultural events are held here during summer and the nearby beaches are really awesome.
Fourka beach is our next stop for lunch or quick coffee and snacks just in front of the sea. Fourka beach is one of the best and surely deserves a quick swill as well. Following the scenic road by the sandy beaches and often pulling over for amazing photo and selfies, we reach Agia Paraskevi spa resort. Located on a high cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea, it is a unique thermal baths center providing a series of health and wellness services to its visitors. The nearby picturesque village of Loutra is full of traditional Greek taverns offering a great variety of fresh fish along with the incredible view of the dark blue sea.
From there we head to Paliouri, shortly we reach this village and we continue on to the most southeastern tip of Kassandra Peninsula, the Kanistro. The location is just amazing. We take our time at the beach or nearby coffee shops and admire the breathtaking view to the sea.
On our way back we enjoy the scenic road and the great vistas of the sea and also may have quick stops at seaside villages like Pefkohori and Polihrono. The day may also end with a great dinner just in front of the sea at Perea village (Thermaikos Gulf) and a great view of Thessaloniki by night.
