Analytical program

09:00 am: Pick up from your hotel in  Thessaloniki and we board the minibus for the area of ​​Kassandra, the first “leg” of Halkidiki. But first, we will make a stop at the cave of Petralona, ​​56km from Thessaloniki (50 minutes drive), to admire the geological beauty of the cave and the findings that are among the earliest human findings in Europe.
11:30 am:
After visiting the Cave of Petralona, we will continue our journey southward to the village of Nea Potidea. After a 30 minutes drive and 30km, we will reach our destination. The main attraction of Nea Potidea is the canal which dates back to 315 BC, that connects the two bays, Thermaikos and Toroneos.
12:30 pm: We will cross the canal with SUP from one entrance to the other. The total length of the canal is 1,250m with a width of 40m. Our activity will end at the long beach of Nea Potidea in the bay of St. Mamas with turquoise crystal clear waters. Duration of activity about 1 ½ hours, 2 nautical miles.
14:30 pm: Light lunch in a beach restaurant.
17:00 pm: We will then head to the cape of Poseidon, 22km from Nea Potidea, approximately 25 minutes drive. Near the village of Poseidi there is an old lighthouse built in 1864, manufactured by a French lighthouse company. Its height is 14.5 meters, and the height of its light (focal height) is 23 meters. The lighthouse at Poseidi was once very close to the sea, although today the distance between the lighthouse and the water is significantly increased due to the deposition of sand on the cape. The lighthouse is still in use today. The sandy beach near the lighthouse, Myti beach, is unique and special as it has crystal clear waters on both sides, and it is not crowded. Near the lighthouse, we will see the remains of the temple of Poseidon (6th -7th BC), who was the god of the sea.
18:30 pm: Next stop will be the Thermal Baths of Agia Paraskevi, 21km from Poseidi, 20 minutes drive. Here we can...put on our diving masks, snorkels and flippers (swim fins) to visit the underwater bubbles that form an upside-down waterfall!
20:00 pm: After this full day, we return to Thessaloniki.
