Mount Athos is located on the third peninsula of Chalkidiki. Unlike Agion Oros, the rest of Chalkidiki is thriving with modern life and excitement. It is a famous resort area covered with beautiful forests and surrounded by beaches of unparallel beauty. The many hotels and taverns offer a variety of services and prices.
The first peninsula is called Kassandra. It is the most cosmopolitan and usually gets the most visitors. Its beaches face either west on the Aegean or east on Toroneos gulf. The middle peninsula is Sithonia. Here the distances are greater but the reward is that it is more peaceful. Here one can find smaller hotels, more isolated areas and thicker forests. The west beaches here face Kassandra and the ones on the east side face Mount Athos.
A way to fully enjoy you trip is to plan to spend a few days relaxing by the sea along with the rest of the family. During you time in Mount Athos, your family can enjoy the sea and the sun at a nice hotel, or even board a small boat and take a daily cruise around Athos so they too can have a taste of your adventure.
Also in this case we can arrange your hotel accommodation, suggest places to visit and take care of your transportation or get you a rental car so that you can make your own schedule.
