halkidiki-greece-054.jpg | Enjoying the clear blue sea and Greek food at Halkidiki, Greece.

Afitos, Kassandra, Halkidiki, Macedonia, Greece, May 2013. Athitos is perfectly combining natural beauty and human presence. Walking along the cobblestone alleyways, observing the traditional village with its fine examples of Greek folk architecture, one almost feels like time has stopped at the beginning of the previous century. The houses are made of mud brick and stone brought by Arvanites who, together with the native population, built the village in the early 19th century. Halkidiki is a peninsula in the shape of a hand with 3 fingers (Kassandra, Sithonia, Athos), in the north of Greece. Peninsula is lined with 550 km of white sandy beaches which are backed by rocky forested hills and the clear blue and turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. Photo by Frits Meyst/Adventure4ever.com
