Ouranoupoli is the largest tourist resort on the northern tip of Chalkidiki. You will find a number of nice beaches, a picturesque center and the famous watchtower. Let's see what you can see here and where you can take a bath everywhere. You can spend your holiday here or come here for a day trip

Beach in the north of the city

At the very beginning of Ouranoupoli is an apartment building, which is fortunately high above the beautiful beach. It is easy to get here on a footpath. Here is probably the best swimming of the whole Ouranoupoli

City view

There is a beautiful view of the center of Ouranoupole where the footpath connects to the road. You can continue along a nice sidewalk leading along the road or take a narrow path through the bushes down to the beach adjacent to the resort of Xenia

Tower of Ouranopol

The tower of Ouranopoli is located at the very southwest end of the city. It is the only really important monument of the city. There is another beach right next to it, but the proximity of the port can discourage anyone

Chapel in the harbor

On the way to the port, you can still peek into a small chapel, where it has a charm, of course, only at night

Port of Ouranoupoli

The port of Ouranoupoli is basically the center of trips you can take from the city. Small boats sail to the side island of Drenia, large ones cruise along the ecclesiastical state of Athos

Sunsets in Ouranoupoli

Sunsets in Ouranoupoli are very nice, although due to the location of the sun does not disappear into the sea, but into the mountains in the west
