Welcome to Chalkidiki in Macedonia Greece

Click to open large map in popup ...It is located in Central Macedonia and borders the county of Thessaloniki on the north, it lies on the Strymoniko Gulf to the east, the Aegean sea to the south and the Thermaiko Gulf to the west.

Halkidiki is a place of great contrasts; mountain and sea, tranquility and exciting nightlife, ancient history and contemporary life. Seeing as this county is surrounded on three sides by the sea, it's natural that the spectacular beaches and coastline of this area are one of its biggest attractions.

It's as if the sun, beaches, natural beauty and religious mysticism of the area have signed a secret pact to coexist harmoniously in Halkidiki. This if course may sound somewhat of an exaggeration, but visitors to the region soon realise that this place is different from any other they have visited, demanding to be explored. Every town has its own story to tell, with towns here from prehistoric, ancient, Byzantine and modern times.

The three 'legs' of Halkidiki as they're called are in fact the capes of Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos. Let's not forget the very unique history of Agios Oros, the holy mountain of Orthodoxy with its collection of monasteries.

OURANOUPOLI

Hotel
Full List

The picturesque village of Ouranoupolis with its small fishing harbour and fortified tower lies at the threshold of the unique monastic community of Mount Athos, on the peninsula of Halkidiki. Its name translates "City of the Heavens". With a backdrop of rolling green hills descending to a sparkling sea of the deepest blue, it is a most beautiful corner of Greece.

Many visit the village and the old tower every year. Ouranoupoli has golden beaches, clear blue sea, and green hilltops with dazzling views of the bay and the tiny deserted islands.
