Paliouri Halkidiki Greece
In the northern side of Kassandra peninsula, near the tip of the "leg" Paliouri village is located. Paliouri is a traditional village that maintains the elements from a previous era. There are many narrow streets and stone houses which present the characteristic architecture of 19th century. The village is built on low hills, about 2,5 km from the coast. Beaches in the area are beautiful, and maybe the best in Kassandra Peninsula. The most famous one is called Chrouso beach and is located in a picturesque gulf, where the green pine trees meet the blue crystal clear water. The sea near Paliouri is ideal for diving, fishing and water sports. From Paliouri 's port many ships carry out cruises to other areas, like mount Athos.
Just before Paliouri village a not so known but worth visiting place is Glarokavos lagoon, a "lake" linked in one point with the sea. In the same region there is a beautiful beach, called "Faros". Paliouri inlet (Chrouso) is the next interesting spot, located between Chrouso beach and Glarokavos. There is a wonderful sandy beach and a small port for boats. The area stands out for its impressive honeycomb coasts, dense vegetation and picturesque beaches, like Golden Coast and Alonaki. Next stop should definitely be Porto Valitsa area, with its rocky coasts and wild but at the same time calm atmosphere and beautiful view. Miragio thermal spa resort is also a newly designed place, near cape Canistro, worth visiting. Church "Zoodochou Pigis and Evaggelismou" is another interesting site, located after Miragio, towards the tip of peninsula. Xina settlement follows and finally Agios Nikolaos small church in cape Kanistro will complete your journey in the best way.
