The Chalkidiki peninsula lies around 69 km Southeast of the northern port city of Thessaloniki, which is the second biggest city in Greece and an economical and cultural center of the Balkan area.
Chalkidiki is divided into three long "fingers" which stretch out into the Aegean Sea namely the areas of Kassandra, Sithonia and Mt Athos (Holy Mountain). Located within the region of Macedonia, its winding coastline is marked by four sizeable gulfs - The Thermaic Gulf to the West, theGulf of Orfanou to the east as well as the Gulf of Toroni and the Mt Athos Gulf in the south. The three "prongs" cover a land mass measuring 2,945 square kilometers and are home to a population of around 79.000.
