For you we have prepared a list of the best secluded beaches of Halkidiki, which although are not very popular, have exceptional beauty and clear blue waters that will enchant you!
On the east side of Sithonia, you will find a secluded island complex with beautiful beaches known as Kavourotrypes. It is a cluster of coves bordered by a lush pine forest. The waters of the beach have a wonderful turquoise color, while the white sand offers the landscape notes of exotic beauty.In the past, Kavourotrypes were known mainly to the permanent residents of the area, who enjoyed their bath in a quiet and isolated environment. This is the reason why there is no sign indicating the beach on the main road!
Today, Kavourotrypes are known to most people, but they still are a place of peace and serenity for their visitors, as they do not have tourist infrastructure or other human interventions that would influence the unspoiled beauty of the landscape. Kavourotrypes are the ideal destination for those seeking natural beauty and isolation from the outside world!
