Kallithea is a very nice place on the hill, with a fantastic view of the turquoise sea. It’s only 90km away from Thessaloniki and 50km from Polygyros, the administrative center of Kassandra. Kallithea is a small place with about 500 settlers in the winter, and its name means a good view.
Kallithea is a very attractive town on Halkidiki (Kassandra peninsula) and every year it attracts thousands of tourists. It’s surrounded by the woods and greenery, and its most beautiful asset is the wonderful turquoise sea and the beach with the fine sand suitable for families with small children. A large number of cafes and bars also appeal to the younger population, so Kallithea is known as the place with the best entertainment in Kassandra.

A few pebbled streets make the pedestrian zone, full of the shops with souvenirs, clothes and different little things.
What is the beach like in Kallithea?
The beach in Kallithea is known for its long shallows and turquoise, clear and very clean water. The beauty of this beach is almost indescribable and is a real delight, especially for children. The right part of the beach (looking towards the sea) is partly rocky and more suitable for younger people and those who don’t like crowds, while the central and left part of the beach are perfect for families with children.
Being on a hill beside the main road, ways to the beach in Kallithea are downhill, so think about it when choosing a summer destination. If the chosen accommodation is not on the beach, you can walk to the beach (up or down the hill) or get there by car. Kalithea is an excellent base for touring both sides of the peninsula, with Siviri, Polichrono, Hanioti and other attractive places on Kassandra nearby.
