The county of Halkidiki belongs to the department of Central Macedonia and occupies the area of the 3-leg peninsula from the Lagada and Volvi lakes until the Aegean Sea. Being part of continental Greece with many beaches, it is perfect for summer vacation. Almost all of the beaches are accessible to the visitors and most of them offer many facilities and water sports.

Furthermore, it's an ideal destination for trailer travelers, since all areas are connected with well-structured roads and almost all beaches have wide parking areas, suitable even for very big vehicles. Free camping is strictly forbidden, the police is keeping a persistent eye at every possible camping-friendly spot, but there are many organized camping areas, mainly at Cassandra and Sithonia.
