Make sure you get your things ready in May, because here’s a wonderful holiday for you! You can spend a holiday for an affordable price to Halkidiki. Located on the Greek mainland the beautiful peninsula makes a perfect beach holiday. Halkidiki is famous for its shape on the map that reminds of three fingers and is also called ‘Poseidon’s trident’. This shape is formed by the three peninsulas, Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos.
The coastline is over 310 miles long and is a dream for every beach fan and sun lover. But Halkidiki has also a lot of history to offer and it’s full of monuments and relics from bygone times.

This holiday package from thomson.co.uk takes you to the 3-star Aegean Aparthotel (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor) which holds the Certificate of Excellence, and I can guarantee you’re gonna love it on your Kriopigi Break. The hotel has good reviews on TripAdvisor thanks to the hospitality of the staff and the nice outdoor pool. The restaurant hosts every week a delicious barbecue night and the sandy beach is just a 15 minutes’ walk away. But if you prefer to drive instead of walking to the beach make use of the little shuttle train. The typical Greek tavernas, restaurants and cafés are only 200 metres from the hotel.
If you want to step into the the past you should definitely visit the cave of Petralona on a holiday to Halkidiki. Archeologists have found in this cave the remains of people who lived more than 200.000 years ago. But don’t worry: nowadays the remains are exhibited in the museum right next to the cave :)
