It sounds maybe too far 1:15 transfer time to get to Neos Marmaras from Thessaloniki, but it is really worth it. Even the drive through the beautiful pine forest on the way to one of the best experiences you ever had on the water is part of the full day you will be having if you choose this excursion. It is rated as one of best Halkidiki excursions on Tripadvisor

Itinerary of the Halkidiki day sailing from Sithonia
Kelyfos also is known as Helona (means Turtle or черепаха) is our first stop. Swim the crystal clear waters or snorkel as the rocky bottom has a lot of life to observe. After that, the time for the usual sea breeze is up and we open sails for the south to Gerochristos island and Lemos beach. Here the sandbar that connects the peninsula with the mainland has the sea on both sides. The beach has been visited by famous movie star yachts. Used to be just ours, now everybody wants to visit Angelina Jolie beach. Next, it’s time for our stop to a Taverna. You can enjoy your sandwiches on the yacht or order fresh fish at the Taverna. After lunch, we tour the secret coves south of Neos Marmaras and stop for one last swim before returning to one of the most scenic beaches of Halkidiki, Kamenos. Here the green of the trees comes all the way to the clear waters.
The Itinerary may change because of the weather or if the guest like to do something else, for example, eat lunch on the way for more sailing time.

Halkidiki activities: What about fishing during our day trip?
Our Jeanneau 11m is very well equipped for fishing with equipment for both, light trawling for Palamida ( a mackerel type of fish) as well as tuna game fishing in Halkidiki. Some of the other yachts are also equipped for light trawling fishing. We only do this type of fishing as its the best way to actually catch something big enough to have fun in the middle of the day. All other types of fishing require you to start the trip way too early before the sun rises, and normally most people don’t want to do this on their holidays.
Why we sail at west Sithonia trip
- It’s an area that is very beautiful.
- With a lot of secret coves inaccessible by a car that you can swim and enjoy alone, for guests that like privacy.
- It has a few beach bars with a character that only the local Greeks know about for guests that like to party.
- The winds are generally mild and boukadoura wind (sea breeze) comes from the south about 12:00 and it’s just right for sailing. That is the main reason that we don’t start the tour earlier as usually there is zero wind early in the morning.
- If the Meltemi wind is a bit strong we can sail close to land and avoid a bumpy ride, or use it to sail better, faster.
This is why we choose Neos Marmaras, Sithonia, Halkidiki – Greece for our base. This also gives us the opportunity to pick people up from Kassandra peninsula and take them away from the crowded beaches to some of the most beautiful Sithonia’s areas.
Motor yacht trips
We can also offer motor yacht trips, please check our “Halkidiki 2021 VIP motor yacht day trip” page for more information.
Half day sailing trips in Kassandra or trip Sithonia, Halkidiki region We do not recommend half day or less than 5 hours trips as we feel we would be cheating our guests. Simply there is not enough time to see the best places in the area (which unlike Fokies and Afytos, has a lot more to see than cliffs). Not to mention that you are chartering a yacht to relax, not run from beach to beach because there is not enough time. The price difference is not that big, to begin with.
What about Mount Athos, can we include a tour of it in our itinerary? Unfortunately, Mount Athos is just too far away from our base to include a tour of it in our route. Actually, there is no place in Halkidiki where we could start that would make a tour of Mt Athos a good idea for a sailboat route. At the closes places like Skala Sykias you need about 2h to go and 2:30h to comeback, plus at least 2h tour. this means that for more than 6:30h the boat will be sailing (or early in the morning probably motoring) without the possibility to stop for swimming. So our guests would spend most of the day out in the sun, no swimming, no stop to relax and lunch. Been there, done that, nobody was happy. Keep in mind that you see the monasteries at a distance at least 500m (it is prohibited to go closer to land and regularly enforced). The monasteries are fantastic, but it’s like looking at the Parthenon from the nearest hill, not the same as actually being in it. So we recommend getting one of the big boats from Ormos Panagias and spending a morning to see Mt. Athos. And another day relaxing on the water with us. Halkidiki sailing
