Holidays should be a mix of relaxing all day, exploring new places, and discovering new things. At Porto Valitsa, you can easily have a little bit of everything.

You can relax at the pool or the beach while sunbathing and sipping a cocktail.

Or you can go for incredible adventurous tours in Halkidiki’s natural world. After all, Halkidiki is perhaps the most stunning area of Greece. Furthermore, you can discover Greece’s laid-back lifestyle and delicious cuisine.

Let’s see closely six things you can do to enjoy Halkidiki fully.

1. Private Cheffing

Sometimes when on holidays we might desire to escape from the crowded restaurants and enjoy our alone time with our family, friends or significant other. That’s why here at Porto Valitsa, you will have the option to dine privately and enjoy delicious authentic Greek gastronomy from our best chefs.

2. Scuba Diving

There is no better place than Greece to experience scuba diving for the first time. The waters of Greece are known for their beauty. At Porto Valitsa, you can finally see the wonders of the Mediterranean Sea with your eyes. You will have the chance to go for a lesson of two hours alongside a teacher and the right equipment to experience the feeling of breathing underwater.

3. Toroneos Cruise

Between the two peninsulas, Kassandra and Sithonia, lies the beautiful Toroneos Gulf. The scenery of the coastlines and the stunning mountains and forests from Toroneos is breathtaking. The Toroneos Gulf is perfect for admiring the beauty of Halkidiki. The departure point is Pefkohori port with a traditional boat that departs at 9:30 in the morning.

4. Sailing Cruise

Unlike with Toroneos Cruise, you can enjoy an 8-hour trip on a sailing yacht with a sailing cruise. The yacht can accommodate up to 8 people. The journey starts at Porto Valitsa, and then you will visit Kelyfos, a stunning island in the Toroneos Gulf. You will get to experience a unique sailing yacht trip of breathtaking views, crystal clear azure waters, and then arrive at the last stop, Porto Carras.

5. Private Cruise

Although cruises are fun and can offer fantastic time with friends and strangers, perhaps you wish for a more private time with your friends and family. That’s why you can choose a private cruise. The cruise is for up to 10 people, and the route is to Mount Athos. You will start from Porto Valitsa, and then on the way, you will sightsee eight monasteries, go for a swim at Marathias and visit Kelyfos island. Lastly, you will arrive at Spalathonisia.

6. Grapes

Wine is a big part of Greek culture starting from ancient times and the god of wine, Dionysus. At Porto Valitsa, since 2013, every September, we celebrate the wine festival and honor Dionysus. During the festival, you can see the process of pressing grapes and creating wine. Meanwhile, there is also a collage of poetry and texts or other visual events related to wine and intoxication.
