Discover Probably the Finest Beach in Greece Located in the middle peninsula of Chalkidiki (Sithonia), Kriaritsi is a truly unspoiled place in the beautiful land of Chalkidiki. The relief of Kriaritsi beaches is considered to be the most beautiful in this area and one of the most impressive in Greece. The moderate round trip from the bus stop turnoff Kriaritsi to the Kriaritsi coastline is about 8.7 km, gaining about 220 m in elevation. Would you like to see the beach consisting of smaller and larger bays with morphology that varies considerably and is unique? Then you are invited to enjoy shallow, sandy bays alternate with complexes of rocks, fragmented by the ancient wave erosion in all kinds of forms, shapes and curves that create a remarkable vast open-air sculpture of nature. Basically, the hike can be divided into sections as follows: from the bus stop turnoff Kriaritsi to Kriaritsi main beach, from Kriaritsi main beach to the Promontory, from the Promontory to the Viewpoint. It generally takes 4.5 hours for average hikers to complete the round trip, allowing a reasonable time for swimming.
