Nea Kallikratia is a town of about 10000 inhabitants, and it belongs to Halkidiki region. It's actually one of the nearest resorts to Thessaoloniki and Serbia, located at the very beginning of Halkidiki, that is, Kasandra. It's 35km away from Thessaloniki, and a little less distant from Kasandra and Sitonia, thus the location is pretty good.
Nea Kalliktratia is lively even during the winter. During the summer a number of population doubles, due to a great number of Thessaloniki citizens who own private houses.
There are enough contents for a complete and eventful summer holiday. The beach is wide and long with the very fine sand, a gradual depth, and a shoal for children.
The beach is arranged, with showers and changing rooms, sun beds and umbrellas in most bars are free with the ordered drink or coffee. There are parts available for setting up your own beach umbrellas and towels.
Along the beach there's a promenade with bars, restaurants, cafes and very beautiful gardens.
There are a few supermarkets in the town, Arvanitidis and Masoutis among them, and 2km from the town center you will find Lidl, so Kallikratia offers excellent possibilities for supplying. There are also banks, butcher shops, bakeries, post office and fast food restaurants.
There is a park for children, in the shade of pines, at the square beside the sea.
Every Thursday there's been organized market where you can buy fresh and quality fruit and vegetables at lower prices, but also some clothes. Several stands with fruit and vegetables works every day.
In the city there is a small, beautiful marina.
Except the fact that it has nice sandy beach and that it's a very lively place, a great advantage of Nea Kallikratia is the location. It's only half an hour drive from Thessaloniki, which is ideal for shopping and pleasant stroll, sightseeing and visiting cultural and historical attractions, big shopping malls such as Cosmos, Mega Outlet, Ikea, or the aqua park Waterland.
