Sun-seekers, find your perfect holiday to Kalithea
A holiday to Kalithea offers sun worshipers the chance of tanning themselves silly. The resort is situated on the western side of the Kassandra peninsula, and is a hotspot for tourists of all ages to soak up the sun and even take in some of the local culture. And you can be there in no time; flights take between three and three-and-a-half hours to reach Halkidiki.
The resort is purpose-built for sun and sand holidaymakers and is set on a hillside, with the beach, where you will probably spend most of your days, at the bottom. Bars and restaurants are aplenty both in the village and on the beachfront, and with traffic passing through the centre this resort has a feeling of the busier Greece. As a small group, family or couple, holidays to Kalithea offer plenty in the way of relaxation, nightlife and culture.
Kalithea by day and night
Understandably, you may wish to spend most of the daytime hours soaking up the rays on the stunning beach, with its bright blue warm waters and light sand. The gentle slope of the beach into the sea makes this resort ideal for children or less strong swimmers. Also at the beach is the opportunities for trying water sports; the calm sea perfect for beginners.
Unusually for a resort, much of the culture is centred at the beach area in Kalithea. Here you can find the ruins of the Temple of Ammon Zeus, which was built in the 4th Century BC and was one of the most important worship sites dedicated to Zeus. Right next to the ruins is the Russian-styled church, Saint Panteleimonas; with the right timing, late July, you might even be in town for the feast of St Panteleimonas. These sights make a wonderful change from full days at the beach, besides you can always put your swimwear back on afterwards and head straight back in the sea.
At night, there are several options for entertainment, with July and August being especially busy. Visitors looking for a change from the full days relaxing on the beach frequent bars and open-air discos. Furthermore, live entertainment is found at some venues, with most hotels offering their own entertainment functions. See here for holidays to Rhodes and Lindos
