Darkninjas :

I am thinking going to Halkidiki, for a holiday this year. is Halkidiki a nice place to go or not ?

Funky munky :
"I've never been but would love the opportunity to go. The passports are too bleeding expensive."
Kes51 :
"A friend of mine has been a few times and speaks very highly of it."
Physics-Student :
"No. The nicest place is somewhere in the UK. The whether is hot and you don't get kidnapped and there is no guilty conscious of global warming!"
maj-len :
"I recommend all the places in Greece, its beautiful islands, Athens (although it´s very hot there in the summer) and all other parts of Greece, except for the island Rhodes, it has too many tourists and the natives there do not have the same interest to serve tourists as they had before, although Rhodes is a beautiful place. Greece has so many historical sites that the country is absolutely worth a visit. If you go to Piraeus, the harbour near Athens, you can take any boat and come to such beautiful islands you just haven´t seen before. The Greeks are friendly, but they are quite cunning (because of their ancient history,I believe). I don´t know Halkidiki, but I´m quite sure it´s quite memorable."
crouchey :
"Just went there last week, yes beautiful place, ouranopilis and a boat trip out to see the monastries well worth the trip, clear waters clean beaches, then drive up to kavala and catch the ferry over to the island of Thasos and drive right around the island, check out cheers bar at town of Thasos for a very good english breakfast. Halkidiki has heaps of interesting towns and bays and reasonably cheap and uncrowded, and now the weather is beautiful and warm, not too hot :-)"
ovcichka :
"yup. it's nice"
