Your next vacation is just around the corner, and the destination has been decided: Halkidiki. You are looking forward to endless swimming and sunbathing under the golden, hot, greek summer sun and many other kinds of activities. But what if we told you that you can take your vacation to the next level and plan something special? 

The greatest option to have an amazing time with your family or/and friends is to rent a boat during your days in Halkidiki. You will have the opportunity to spend some quiet and relaxing time away from mass tourism and connect with the beautiful nature around you.

The boat activities are endless and guarantee you a great experience! From exploring Halkidiki and spending quality time swimming and snorkelling to organising mini getaways to close destinations, a boat rental is what you need. 

Here we will show you the top destinations near Halkidiki to visit when renting a boat.

1. TORONEOS GULF CRUISE

This cruise trip is perfect for you if you are looking for a day exploring the first and second peninsulas of Halkidiki, Kassandra, and Sithonia, enjoying the sun and admiring the wondrous landscapes around!

You will spend the day sailing on the blue, crystal-clear waters of the Toroneos gulf and the coastlines of both peninsulas since the gulf is located between the two. Beautiful, hidden, and isolated beaches near Toroni are known for their turquoise, mesmerizing waters and pristine beaches. You can also visit the beautiful island “Kelifos”, which is a uniquely shaped island looking like a turtle, that’s why the locals call it “Turtle island”, an idyllic place ideal for swimming and diving from the boat! 

Another great spot to visit during your cruise is the beautiful village of Neos Marmaras or the traditional, greek village of Porto Koufo where you can stroll around the small alleys.

2. SPORADES

A great escape from Halkidiki would also be the islands of Sporades. An amazing experience, that will stay in your memories forever! You will have the opportunity to explore the excellent landscapes of Skopelos, Alonnisos, and Skiathos. All of them are inhabited, and each one has its unique beauty. The warm, blue waters of the Aegean sea are ideal for endless swimming, the lushness all around is magical, and the islands are perfect for strolling around in the narrow, picturesque alleys and trying local food and products. A great experience would also be a visit to the National Marine Park of Alonissos, where visitors are welcome to enjoy swimming and diving, take pictures, record videos, go sightseeing, walk around or observe the wildlife in areas where public access is permitted.

Very close to Halkidiki by motor boat, Sporades are a great destination for a mini getaway if you want to explore more places and create new memories with your loved ones. During your sail there you will also have the chance to see and feed the dolphins that are plenty in the area!

3. CRUISE TO PELION

Pelion is the ideal place if you wish to combine mountains with the sea. Extremely beautiful landscapes full of lushness and mesmerizing, emerald waters will immediately take your breath away! The pristine beaches of Pelion are the perfect option if you want to swim with a spectacular view of the highland areas of Pelion mountain. 

The beaches on the east side are like they came straight out of a fairytale and are the great choice for an escape from Halkidiki. 

We suggest you visit the beaches: Mylopotamos, a golden sand beach with turquoise waters with the natural shadows of the pine trees all around, Fakistra beach, with its natural, wild beauty surrounded by a huge mountain and lushness that creates a spectacular scenery, and Limnionas beach, which makes you feel like you are at some exotic place far far away, a beach with pristine, golden sand and emerald, shallow waters.

4. CRUISE AROUND MOUNT ATHOS

A mini getaway with a boat extremely close is the tour of the Mount Athos area. This cruise to the second most significant Orthodox destination after the Holy Lands is a unique trip that will be unforgettable! 

You will sail from Vourvourou, Sithonia straight to the Mount Athos area, and you will be able to have a tour from the sea and admire the stunning architecture of the Monasteries above. Then you will have the opportunity to visit Ammouliani island as well as the magnificent Drenia islands and swim in the warm, turquoise waters of the area and explore the breathtaking landscape and white-sand beaches! At the end of your cruise, you could stop at Diaporos island for a dive in the Blue Lagoon spot, the most famous spot of Halkidiki, which looks like an infinite pool at some exotic island in the Caribbean sea!
