A three-pronged peninsula (belonging to Halkidiki) juts out into the Aegean Sea from the north of the Greek mainland. On Kassandra, the closest to the mainland and perhaps the better known, lies family-owned Sani. This purposebuilt resort is fronted by a blue flag beach and a yacht-filled elegant marina. New last summer: taking advantage of the calm waters, Sani Resort introduced their Optimist Sailing Academy. Children as young as six can now learn to sail with highly trained experts, adding to an already extensive list of things to do. Plus, visit in July or August for Sani Festival which includes dance performances, classical music and fine art exhibitions.
