Karidi beach has its main beach and a second beach to the south. These beaches are real magnets for tourists in the summer and one of Sithonia’s most sought after beaches. Photogenic Karidi is often in websites and magazines as a picture to lure you to Sithonia’s fantastic gems.
There is no organization on the beach as far as beach bars are concerned, this also means no sun-beds and umbrellas. At the entrance to Karidi beach is a new restaurant called Melia, here is also a take away bar where you can get food to take to the beach. We highly recommend trying their unique calamari gyros! Up the road about 400 m is also a pizzeria at Top Studios.
The beach is very shallow like a large sheltered aquamarine swimming pool. The sand is powdery soft and cannot be compared with any other sand in Sithonia. Adults can walk out 50+ meters and the water won’t get past the waist, so this really is the perfect kid’s pool. Even in the end season this beach will be crowded so it’s good to get here early in the day if you want parking and room for your towel.
What’s great about Karidi
Gorgeous photogenic beach. Calm shallow water and powdery sand. No loud music and perfect for the children.
And what’s not…
Crowded at all times and the water can at times get murky when seaweed gets blown into the bay.
Access is easy, just drive to the south side of Vourvourou and you will see a sign to Ekies resort, turn here and follow the road to the end. Park under the trees and don’t get stuck in the soft sand.
