When you think about Vourvourou, a boat trip comes to mind.
With its nine-island archipelago, Vourvourou is a unique destination in Halkidiki. This group of islands are protected from the open sea and the water in the bay is calm and ideal for boat journeys. Therefore renting a boat is the “go to” in Vourvourou! Spend the day exploring the beaches and inlets of Diaporos and the other islands, or even the coastline of Sithonia. Take your picnic basket along and enjoy your day out in nature.
Vourvourou is not ideal just for small boats. Don’t be surprised if you see some yachts or sailboats anchored in the bay, as some of the wealthiest also enjoy the treasures that Vourvourou has to offer.
The real jewel of Vourvourou, however, is Diaporos (or Diapori or Island for the locals), which is located opposite Vourvourou, just 10 km from Agios Nikolaos in the municipality of Sithonia. It is the largest island of the archipelago. It has an area of 3.2 square km and most of it is covered by pines and in many places the foliage of the trees touches the sea. With its natural beauty, the lacy beaches and its magical landscape, it calms both mind and body.It has been described as a secret paradise of Halkidiki, as a magical island, an exotic island, an earthly paradise, the Scorpio of Northern Greece, the Caribbean of Greece, etc.It’s all of the above and even more!Vourvourou can also be an excellent starting point for you to visit more of Sithonias’ spectacular sights, by car.
