Discover an Exquisite Beach in Chalkidiki Known only by Natives Sithonia, the middle peninsula of Chalkidiki, Greece, harbors some wonderful beaches which are officially neither marked nor named. One of them is a beautiful beach nearby Toroni, occupied predominantly by the nudists, which is by natives unofficially called the Paradise beach. The moderate round trip from the Toroni lifeguard tower to the Paradise beach is about 11 km, gaining about 170 m in elevation. Tired of lounging the whole day on the same beach in Toroni or somewhere else in Chalkidiki and looking for a diversion and exploring something special? So, this is a hike just for you. Basically, the hike can be divided into sections as follows: from the Toroni lifeguard tower to the Toroni Middle beach, from the Toroni Middle beach to the Toroni Back beach, from the Toroni Back beach to the Paradise beach. It generally takes 10 hours for average hikers to complete the round trip, allotting by far most of the time for spending it at the attractive places of your choice. Alternatives: Should you decide to shorten the trail by taking the car and miss only some of the highlights of the tour, you have the following options: 1. Drive up and park up in the area of beautiful Toroni Back beach and make this your trailhead. Spend some time there. If necessary, replenish victuals at the beach restaurant. Then continue as described in option 2. 2. Drive up and park up on the hill of Paradise beach and descend to the beach on foot (about 100 m). Alternately, you may use the regular bus service from the Toroni bus stop (nearby the lifeguard tower) in direction of Neos Marmaras and get off on the first main road bus stop after leaving Toroni. The trail to the Paradise Beach from that bus stop is 2.5 km. If you are a nudist enthusiast you may spend most of your time directly in the Paradise beach as it is predominantly occupied by nudists. Otherwise you may either return to some of the previous beaches or visit one of the next textile beaches (e.g. Aretes beach) next to the Paradise beach which are quite nice and not so crowded.
