Beaches and 10 Best Beaches : Beach bar, camping, snorkeling, and Water sports

  • Profile

    Kriaritsi beach is a long bay that is actually 2 beaches divided by a crag. The southern smaller section of beach is frequented by nudists who set up camp over the summer. The northern larger part is also very much a campers beach but the more clothes friendly kind. Facing the open sea, the water is amazingly pure, a delight for swimmers and is rated among Sithonia’s top 10!

    The organized campsites care for a small part of the beach and operate a restaurant and a beach bar. There is another beach bar in the center of the beach which is operated by the taverna about 100 meters behind the beach. Sun-beds and umbrellas are available at these spots as are toilets and showers.

    The water at Kriaritsi is deep which means you can get some good waves, but it can also be amazingly calm. The beach drops off steeply and continues to drop off so that just 15 m off shore you can’t touch the bottom. Kriaritsi is also a great beach for windsurfing and kiteboarding or just to soak up the sun. Kriaritsi is a must do destination and not to be left off your Halkidiki beach list.

    What’s great about Kriaritsi Beach

    One of Sithonia’s best 10. Course sand that doesn’t stick to you. Great swimming.  

    And what’s not…

    Real isolation and hard to reach. Minimally organized. Toilets a little difficult to find.

    Access is a little difficult. You need a car or a good set of legs. Driving north from Kalamitsi a few kilometers, you will arrive at an overpass. Turn right onto a dirt road that will take you into a maze of abandoned streets of a undeveloped community. Follow the written directions, mainly spray painted on the pavement. The difficulty of getting here is made up for when you arrive.

    1. Wil Caspers Kriaritsi beach

      I was visiting Kriaritsi two years ago, in summer, begin August. It is indeed difficult to reach the beach, and when we arrived just before sunset we were really shocked. We stayed a week on the camping because we had appointed with several groups of friends and couples.
      All the beauty described above was covered and hidden from two long rows of campers and vehicles. Terrible, we wanted immidiately to leave by taxi before darkness set, terrible it did not look as paradise at all. How could this village allow so many campers on the beach, and destrtoy all the view and the beach for a free holiday feeling.
      We are talking about at least 80 caravans parked full season on that beach in two rows from left to right as far the eye can reach. The region’s major has “sold” a piece of this beach to the camping, which offers families to stay as long as they want for a good rent.
      To enter the sea you have to pass walking through the “campers properties” from their improvised kitchen, bathrooms, storage and barbeque places and walk over their giant carpets, which shows the borders of their season rented property. The view in the night is disturbed with lights and anti mosquito lights and the vehicles. It does not amazes me that this site doesn’t show this vehicles on the pictures, because they are a truly nightmare!!!! The rest of kriaritsi is great, beatiful sea, rocks and it could be a nice haven of peace, but then the caravans should leave and this major with them!!!!
