Chanioti is a peaceful tourist village on the east coast of the Kassandra Peninsula of Chalkidiki, just 60 minutes from Thessaloniki. Surrounded by green forests on the one side and a stunning blue see at the other Chantioti is bound to satisfy every visitor. Although it is a modern resort, its pretty central square, winding streets and traditional-style, red-roofed buildings suggest greater age.
It is situated on flat land gently sloping to the NE-facing shore, and as a result the water are typically warm and calm. The traffic-free frontage to the magnificent beach with a pine-shaded park at one end is one of its greater strengths. Being on the center of Kassandra it provides easy access to the whole peninsula, with the famous clubs of Kallithea only 15 minutes away.
It is a relaxing venue for groups of most ages, and one of the most popular resorts on the peninsula. Visitors are predominantly British and Scandinavian holidaymakers, plus hordes of Greeks from mid-June to the end of August.
