Things to do in Afitos
The stone built houses of Afitos are some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture Greece has to offer. Each stone house is inscribed with its building date, making it a great place to marvel at the old world architecture of this small village. The entire resort oozes with an air of the old world, and its charm is comfortably rustic.
Afitos Beach is the place to cool off when the Greek summers get too warm. The sandy shore has plenty of sun loungers to rest upon and the waters of the Aegean Sea are crystal clear and inviting. If you want to take a day trip, be sure to head to the eastern side of Halkidiki. There, you will find Mount Athos, or Holy Mountain. The mountain is home to a ninth century monastery that hangs off its cliffs. View the iconic structure from the sea for the best views.
The Church of St. Demetrius was built in 1859, and is centrally located in Afitos. You can wander the square and the streets surrounding it to view the sculptors of Vassilis Pavlis. There is also the fantastic Greek Folklore Museum located nearby.
It is unsurprising to find that most of the cafés and bars line the promenade, which looks out onto one of the most beautiful scenes in Halkidiki. Not only are the views pristine and crisp, but they are available all year round for anyone looking to escape the cold or top up their summer tans.
There is a plethora of places to chill and have a bite to eat while you are at Afitos Beach. There are great little spots like the Lime Beach Bar or Imeros Cocktail Bar, where you can dive into a fruity cocktail and enjoy the views.
If you would like to mix things up during your holiday in Afitos, then head south to Kriopigi. You will find a stunning destination with gorgeous golden beaches, from which you can experience tours of the deep blue sea. Mixing with the frolicking fish, gazing over the captivating coral reef and swimming up along the shore is a great way to spend the day with the kids. The golden Greek beaches around Afitos are the perfect spot to work on your tan no matter what time of year it is.
