A small coastal village Gerakini is located near
Kalives Poligiru – between two “fingers” (smaller peninsulas) of Halkidiki,
Kassandra and Sithonia, being an excellent starting point for excursions
throughout the peninsula and, above all, across Kassandra and Sithonia, and
across mountainous parts of Halkidiki with their picturesque traditional
villages in the stunning backdrop of mountains covered with dense vegetation of
the mount of Cholomondas.
Indeed, the location of Gerakini is unique: if the north has Mount Cholomondas with all indescribable beauty of its pristine nature, then the west enjoys a famous tourist resort of Halkidiki – Kassandra peninsula, with its exquisite resorts and beautiful beaches. Also, the east side stretches across the Sithonia peninsula, which is famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, small fishing villages and fantastic beaches – some are the best in Greece. Gerakini belongs to the Municipality of Polygyros. In the early twentieth century, the place was just a small settlement of mine workers extracting magnesite, which had been widely developed in the 1960s of the last century. Nowadays, Gerakini has already developed a tourist resort, with numerous hotels, apartments and a camping. In addition, the settlement has a kindergarten. There is an annual religious festival (panigiri) conducted in favour of St. Theodore (Theodore Tyron and Theodore Stratelates).
Gerakini beach stretches along the crystal-clear sea, where you can cool off during hot summer days. It is an ideal place for those who like swimming and sun tanning, and those looking for a quiet corner for complete relaxation.
Having visited Gerakini, it is important to taste the local cuisine in order to feel the true taste of Greece: the resort is famous for preparation of fresh fish and shells that are usually accompanied by the Greek salad, which is called by the Greeks as “rural salad” (Horyatiki salad) and a glass of anisette vodka (ouzo).
Nightlife in Gerakini is surprisingly noiseless and pleasant. In the evening, you can wander through the streets of the resort, or glance through the shops or walk along the waterfront, as well as to sit in one of the many taverns and coffee shops while enjoying a glass of your favourite wine and admiring the unique colours immersed in a sea of the setting sun.
Gerakini has plenty of shops with locally made products, where you can buy a souvenir for yourself and your friends – in memory of the Greek holidays. You can also buy hand-made goods and jewellery.
Goods of local produce: olives and olive oil. View More »
