Pefkohori is the most popular tourist resort on Kassandra and a place with the longest tradition in tourism. Its name means a place with lots of pine trees. Above the main road is old Pefkohori where most residents live. It's characterized by narrow streets. It's worth visiting the old square that takes you back times with its appearance and atmosphere. The bigger (touristic) part of new Pefkohori is located below the main road, although the city is rapidly expanding upwards as well. This part of Pefkohori has two large parallel streets, one is main road and the other is promenade by the sea.
The beach is very long and clean and the depth is gradual. Pefkohori is very well visited, so in high season the main beach is crowded, as well as the promenade that's full of restaurants, taverns, bars and shops, as well as tourists. Deck chairs are usually included with drink, still there's a free space for visitors with their own equipment. Despite the crowd, water is usually clear and transparent, without grass and jellyfish. Rightmost part of the beach has a little natural shade.
Coffee shops work mainly until shortly after midnight, and then the young go to a few nightclubs that run all night.
On the main road there's a bus stop where you can take a bus to visit other places on Kassandra, and through local travel agencies you can go on trips to Sithonia, Kelyfos island, Mount Athos or the most beautiful beaches on Kassandra, either by boat or bus. Also you can visit the most beautiful beach in the region - Xenia (Chrousso).
For a change, in the evening you can visit beautiful Hanioti (4km) or Polihrono (8km). We recommend to visit Afytos, the most authentic a place on Kassandra, located 22km from Pefkohori. You can visit Afytos on the same day as Kallithea, because they are very near to each other. If you want, you can also visit Thessaloniki (112 km) which is excellent both for shopping and entertainment.
Pefkohori provides all the possibilities for eventful vacation, even for the most demanding tourists. It's a good choice for those who like a lively town, always crowded promenade, beach, restaurants and outdoor cafes, a patchwork of everything, and for avoiding if you want a peaceful holiday in the fishing village and relaxation on the less-visited beaches.
