But let me not monopolize your interest only for Thessaloniki. Most of the tourists coming to Thessaloniki in the summer combine their trip with a seaside place to make their summer holidays. We are approaching the end of May and I think many of you make plans for your summer… So it’s time for some suggestions ..
The places you can combine with your visit to Thessaloniki are plenty. For starters in this article I will suggest to you a camping in the second ‘leg’ of Halkidiki prefecture in ‘Metamorphosis’ area. It is one of my favorite camping in Halkidiki, perhaps because I have very beautiful memories in this place.
The camping is called Sunny Bay and you can visit it very easily using even using the bus services of Halkidiki KTEL. Check here for how to get from Thessaloniki central bus station to Halkidiki bus station and here how to get from Thessaloniki airport to Halkidiki bus station. The camping is just 1-2 km away from the a village in Halkidiki that is called ‘Metamorfosi’ and it is near the sea. Therefore it is not necessary to have a car if you cannot rent one or cannot bring the one you have with you.
The camping sunny bay is a quiet camping with a slightly alternative approach but completely eco friendly. It is for sure a ‘must’ for individuals and families who want to relax. It has everything you may need, a mini market, a tavern and a cafe-bar next to the sea. If you love pets you will like it even more as you will find there many cats and If I remember well 1-2 dogs. If you have children be sure that they will also enjoy your stay there because they will find other kids to play and a playground for children.
Moreover the place you will place your tent is having clear borders with the other places (thus you will not experience finding a neighbor the next day almost inside your tent) and the shadow will be very good (so that you do not burn inside the tent). In addition, if you do not have a tent there are some available that you can rent, but there are also caravans that you can rent at very good prices. The caravans are slightly old but clean and perhaps you may find them in the lowest prices in Halkidiki. I believe the value for money for your choice will be very good. Generally the prices at this camping are very good comparing to other such camping in Halkidiki.
There is also a parking where you can park your car – both inside and outside the camping. The owners and staff who work there are very friendly. In addition, if you would like to access the internet, in front of the mini market of the camping there is free wifi which will enable you to keep the communication with your acquaintances and friends.
The sea next to the camping is very clean and in the evening you can take your drink at bar in the village or at the beach bar which is very close to the camping. In the area around the Sunny Bay camping there are also other camping and hotels thus you will not feel ‘lonely’. Ahh! I should not forget… if you like to barbecue, there is always a barbecue set that you can use in the camping. Plus, if you would like to cook fish there is fishery shop in the village with fresh fish!!!
So, get ready for your holidays. This is the first proposal for this summer. Others will follow for all tastes!
