Nature Activities & Sports

Thanks to initiatives by its hotels and local communities, Halkidiki has now developed a host of alternative forms of tourism, including sea sports, golf, mountain-biking, horse-riding, bird-watching, spas, hiking, agro-tourism, faith tourism and sports. There is a truly unlimited choice of activities for those who love to keep busy.
