If it’s good enough for a king…! One of Alexander the Great’s generals - Cassander, wrestled for control and succeeded him to become king of Macedonia. It was here, the Kassandra peninsula, where he wanted to build his capital. Let’s find out why Kassandra is worth dying for…
Kassandra comes to lifeWhile Halkidiki’s attraction is its superb beaches, no matter how inviting weeks of relaxation may sound to you, even the dullest bloke wants a little action. This is where Kassandra balances things out. You want your morning coffee and Greek spanakopita on the balcony with the scent of fresh pine permeating the air? You can get that here! You want to walk a few meters from your hotel to a picture perfect bleached sand beach, throw your towel on a sunbed as you watch the stunning shades blue and green crystal water dazzle your eyes and calm you to sleep? You got that too! But in Kassandra when the sun goes down, the stars come out. Villages like Pefkohori will keep you entertained.

Agia Paraskevi thermal spaWant adventure? Hang out on the wild side of Kassandra. What could be more cool than soaking in an outdoor mineral pool with a cliff top view over the Aegean. Pamper yourself with a morning of treatments and sweat it out in the hamman and sauna. Explore the area by descending down the steep stairway to the coastal rocks, here you can some of the water sources in the small caves. After, just lounge away your afternoon on the beach below the spa center a the bottom of the cliffs. Oh, and don’t forget to bring a towel.
What we like about KassandraSit at the Notos all day cafe bar with sensational seaside views in quaint Afitos with its stone houses and cobbledstone streets. Party all day on Glarokavos beach in Pefkochori. Spend a day at the tranquil Possidi beach in south Kassandra. Take a group of friends and feel like a captain as you enjoy a glass of wine on the deck of a luxury sailboat that you chartered for the day.
