    Sithonia, Halkidiki

    July 18, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    After a much needed free pit stop and park4night at Zampetas camping and caravan centre in Thessaloniki, we headed to the quieter and less developed peninsula of Halkidiki, Sithonia. Hilly and rocky, covered in dense pine forest, with beautiful quiet coves and small beachside towns, it was very picturesque and we rested here for a week, trying out different wild camping spots. There were lots of crowded campsites but also several abandoned campsites with derelict facilities, but level ground and shade right on the beach. We stayed in one in a small harbour near Sarti beach; one at Paralia Sykia where we were driven away by a giant cricket, and then we headed to the West coast and camped near Poseidon beach complex. It was a beautiful sandy but rocky cove with a makeshift jetty where you could swim, with sea urchins and shellfish and interesting sea flora. The hotel guests used one side of the cove and campers lined the other beach. We hung out here for nearly a week.Read more
