If you’re looking for a luxurious resort in the heart of Halkidiki, Sani is your answer.

Places To Visit In Sani
Stunning Sani Marina
The elegant Sani Marina is without doubt the first place you should visit if opulence is what you’re seeking. This state-of-the-art harbour boasts a cosmopolitan environment, the pièce de résistance being its luxury Blue Flag yachts that bob in the crystal-clear Aegean waters. Visitors to this part of the resort are guaranteed to experience first-class, with five-star accommodation, spectacular beaches to discover and day-trip access to many of the Aegean islands from the port. The Piazza completes the Marina, with sophisticated dining, nightlife and chic international boutiques to peruse.
Uncover Natural Beauty
If you like nothing more than to soak up the scenery on foot while you’re on holiday, the Koutsoupia-Sivri Hiking Trail is a must. This beautiful cliff-top walk begins in Sani Club and ends in Siviri Village (10km), where you’ll discover spectacular wildlife, natural treasures and – for the history buffs among us – a handful of ancient ruins. In addition, Greece’s second largest city Thessaloniki is a 90-minute drive from Sani, and offers a wealth of architecture worth uncovering.
Head For The Hills In Afytos
This traditional hilltop village is everything you’d expect it to be and more. Its quaint cobbled streets offer a rustic charm, featuring stone-built houses (look out for their inscriptions), little shops and cosy family-run tavernas. Want to tap into the village’s history? The central square houses the 19th-century church of Agios Dimitrios and a folklore museum, both of which are certainly worth browsing. If the beach is more your thing, a steep walk down from the village will take you to Afytos Beach, a sheltered stretch of sand complete with a couple of seafront tavernas.
Blue Flag Sani Beach
This seven-kilometre stretch of sand is a haven for those who love nothing more than soaking up the gorgeous sunshine and paddling in the crystal-clear sea. Facilities including sun-loungers and umbrellas are available, and the golden sands are lined with bars, restaurants and, of course, the resort’s luxury hotels. Those feeling adventurous can discover the scuba diving opportunity at Sea World Diving Centre, with certified PADI instructors to guide you.
