For some people, Halkidiki might be more familiar to them under one of its other names such as Chalkidiki, Chalkidike, and Chalcidice. After all, it was a location of some renown in the classical world, meaning that hearing one of those names should bring the ancient Greeks and Romans to mind for more than a few people out there. Regardless, Halkidiki is a peninsula in Greece as well as the regional unit based on said peninsula in Greece, resembling nothing so much as a hand with three fingers thrusting out into the northwestern part of the Aegean Sea.
Each of its fingers is a peninsula in its own right, filled with beach resorts as well as countless sites of cultural interest, which should be more than enough to catch the interest of a wide range of tourists out there. Better still, the sea and Greece’s mountainous terrain come together to create a landscape that can be found nowhere else in the world, thus combining with its sites of interest to make Halkidiki a must-not-miss experience.
Summed up, Halkidiki offers plenty of entertainments to tourists based out of some of the best beach resorts that can be found in Greece. As a result, it is a smart and sensible choice for people who want to have as much fun as possible while doing as much as possible on their summer vacations in one of the most storied countries in the world.
Here are five of the finest hotels that can be found in Halkidiki’s beautiful landscape:
Danai Beach Resort
Danai Beach Resort can be found on Sithonia, which is the center of the three fingers that make up Halkidiki.

Of course, the private beach is combined with numerous amenities for each unit, which range from 24 hour room service to fashion and style coaching, as well as numerous amenities for the resort as a whole, which range from convenient transportation to a fully-functional business center for people who want to keep an eye on business matters while resting and relaxing.
Considering all of the amenities added onto the excellence of its natural setting, it should come as no surprise to learn that a stay at Danai Beach Resort starts at $869 and can climb much higher depending on the exact unit being asked for.
Eagles Palace is situated close to Mount Athos, which is one of the better-known locations in Halkidiki. As a result, it can be said to combine the sea with a mountain as well as verdant surroundings to create surroundings that are not just beautiful but also breath-taking. Naturally, its excellent setting is combined with luxurious accommodations that provide their guests with whatever it is that they are interested in on a short notice as well as on-site amenities such as a spa for maximum rest and relaxation. Summed up, a stay at Eagles Palace is well worth its $1074 cost, particularly if its guests make sure to make the best use of all the wonderful amenities available to them.
Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel
Despite its mythological associations, the guests at the Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel will be able to leave, but whether they would want to after their experience is another matter altogether. It provides its guests with the same access to beaches as well as the other wonderful amenities that can be found throughout Halkidiki, but it stands out in that it has a strong focus on promoting the well-being of its guests, with the best proof can seen in its wellness spa. As a result, it is an excellent choice for people who are feeling not their best because some time in the Grecian sun should be more than enough to provide them with the mental, physical, and emotional boost that they need. At this point, it should be mentioned that a stay at the Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel starts at around $350.
Sani Resorts operates a number of fine hotels in Halkidiki. Each one shares a number of things in common, but also provide their unique twist on the overall business’s winning formula.

Needless to say, these opportunities are paired with plenty of luxuries for each suite, which range from soft and welcoming beds to outstanding food and wine to make a complete summer vacation. Likewise, its resort amenities are no less excellent, thus ensuring that its guests will have an excellent selection of opportunities for fun and excitement both in and out of the Grecian sun. With that said, people planning to stay there should expect prices starting at $800.
In contrast to its counterpart, Sani Club is interesting in that it is in a more secluded location. As a result, it is a better choice for people who are interested in resting and relaxing while on their summer vacations, though it should be noted that the hotel’s location close to the shore will still provide them with plenty of opportunities for summertime fun. Once again, Sani Club is like its counterpart in that it provides both an excellent set of suite amenities and an excellent sit of resort amenities, which include but are not limited to child-care, room service, and convenient transportation for a perfect experience.
