The best thing to do in Halkidiki is to join groups on a sailboat in the Halkidiki region.

This region, Chalkidiki is sailing heaven. Every day from noon to sunset during the summer holidays of 2024, a sea breeze forms. Just strong enough to make sailing fun, and just right for beginners to enjoy the amazing feeling of moving with the wind on the water. Without a car, it’s just you and nature. The Halkidiki region has beautiful beaches and a pine forest that goes right down to the water. It’s a typical hot summer day in Greece. So, if you want to spend your holiday in our area, you must do a boat charter, which is a trip to Sithonia or Kassandra with a skipper on one of our sailing boats.

Day sailing trips from Thessaloniki

The trip from Thessaloniki to Neos Marmaras takes 1 hour and 15 minutes, which might seem like too long, but it is well worth it. If you choose this excursion, you will have a full day that includes driving through a beautiful pine forest on the way to one of the best times you’ve ever had on the water.

It is rated as one of the best Halkidiki excursions on Tripadvisor

Itinerary of the Halkidiki Day sailing from  Sithonia

Our first stop is Kelyfos, also known as Helona (which means Turtle or ереаа). Swim in crystal clear waters or snorkel because the rocky bottom is rich in marine life. After that, the usual sea breeze passed, and we set sail for the south to Gerochristos Island and Lemos Beach. The sea is on both sides of the sandbar that connects the peninsula to the mainland. Famous movie star yachts have visited the beach. It used to be just the two of us, but now everyone wants to go to Angelina Jolie’s beach. On the yacht, you can eat your sandwiches. After lunch, we tour the secret coves south of Neos Marmaras and stop for one last swim before returning to Kamenos, one of Halkidiki’s most scenic beaches. The green of the trees reaches all the way to the clear waters here.
The itinerary may change due to weather, the skipper’s discretion, or if the guest wishes to do something else, such as eat lunch on the way for more sailing time.

Or you can book any of our “typical” trips and ask the skipper to do some trawl fishing while hopping from one beach to the next. Its a lot of fun as our routes bring us over some excellent fishing spots, and the skipper will deviate from the route if possible to go near fish signs on the water.
There is a small extra charge of 10 euros per person for this paid onboard.

Why do we go sailing to West Sithonia

  • It is a very beautiful place.
  • With a lot of hidden coves that can’t be reached by car where guests who like privacy can swim and relax alone.
  • It has a few beach bars that only the Greeks who live there know about. Those who like to party can go there.
  • Most of the time, the winds are calm, and the boukadoura wind (sea breeze) comes from the south around noon, which is a great time to sail.
  • The main reason we don’t start the tour earlier is that there is usually no wind in the morning.
  • If the Meltemi wind is a bit strong, we can sail close to land to avoid a rough ride or use it to sail better and faster.

Because of this, our base is in Neos Marmaras, Sithonia, at Halkidiki, Greece. This also lets us pick up people from the Kassandra peninsula and take them away from the crowded beaches to some of Sithonia’s most beautiful places.

What about Mount Athos? Can we tour it as part of our trip?

Mount Athos is too far away from where we are staying to be included in our itinerary. In fact, there is nowhere in Halkidiki where we could begin that would justify a sailboat trip to Mt. Athos. It takes about 2 hours to get there and 2:30 hours to get back. Plus at least 2 hours to look around at the closest spots, such as Skala Sykias. This means that the boat will be sailing (or, more likely, motoring) for more than 6:30 hours without stopping for swimming as a result, our visitors would spend the majority of the day outside in the sun, with no time for swimming or lunch breaks.

We’ve all been there and done that, and no one liked it. Remember that the monasteries can be seen from at least 500m away (it is prohibited to go closer to land and regularly enforced). The monasteries are beautiful, but it’s not the same as actually being in one. It’s like looking down from a nearby hill at the Parthenon. If you want to see Mt. Athos, we recommend taking one of the large boats from Ormos Panagias and spending the morning there. And another day of relaxing on the water with us.
