If you go on a car trip around Chalkidiki – along the road between the northern finger of Athos and the middle finger of Sithonia you will come across a number of nice beaches where you can take a bathing break. The center here is the town of Pyrgadikia, where you can buy provisions for a trip in the supermarket or strengthen in a tavern

Kampos beach - Pyrgadikia

We start the trip on the northern finger of Chalkidiki. The road from the largest city of Lerissos leads long inland. As you climb the hills, there are beautiful views up to the monumental Mount Athos. After 25 kilometers of driving, we finally descend to the sea to the largest resort „between the fingers“ – Pyrgadikie. From here we head north along the coast to the almost kilometer long Kampos beach. There can be quite big waves, especially in the afternoon

From Kampos beach we return to Pyrgadikia (there is also a small beach by the harbor). We continue further south. Just outside the city are several small coves with nice beaches. Then it pays to stop at a nice lookout from where you can see both Pyrgadikia and the road that still awaits us

Now we have about five kilometers to drive just above the coast. At the southern end of this huge bay between the fingers of Chalkidki are three large beaches, visible from here

The best accessible beach in the south is Salonikiou, almost a kilometer and a half long.

The southern part of the beach is lined with beautiful green forest. From here, the middle finger of Sithonia slowly begins, which can be completely bypassed if you have enough time
