Sani beach for instance, near the city of Thessaloniki, is one of the most popular beaches in Kassandra. It forms several pockets where you can enjoy the golden, soft sand and the shallow, crystal clear waters. Traditional taverns, restaurants, bars, and of course water sports facilities are available. Plus, the beach is accessible. Another choice is Kavourotripes (which translates in Greek to “the burrows of crabs”), also known as Portokali beach. Its name literally means Orange beach, probably because of the amazing golden sand and the iridescent waters under the summer sun that make its colors look golden-orange. It also has a spectacular view of Mt. Athos, surrounded by pine trees and white rocks. Akti Xenia (also called Paliouri) is one of the most renowned beaches in Kassandra, among families too. It is hidden in a small bay, with always calm waters, soft sand and pine trees. Keep in mind beach bars host parties at night on the weekends there. Possidi beach for some is the most impressive beach of Kassandra for its transparent turquoise waters and bright, almost white, sand. The beach has watersport facilities, some beach bars and it is also accessible. Plus, you should be there during sunset, as the horizon stretches, the view is sensational. If you feel like going wilder, Armenistis is the best place for you. The beach -because of its lush vegetation and pine trees- feels like a haven for relaxation. It is also an extremely big beach with emerald waters and soothing white sand where you can find if you feel like, some traditional taverns to treat yourself to Greek “tsipouro” with some “mezes” (snacks that accompany strong liquor). Neos Marmaras is not a single beach, rather than a village with many astonishing sandy beaches. The main beach is located on the south side and most of it has natural shade from pine trees. It is also accessible, and the waters are gradually deepening which makes it perfect for both kids and swimming. Plus, at the village you can find many taverns for when it’s time to grab a bite.
