1. Beach Bar Ακρόγιαλο, Afytos

  Located a 5-minute drive from the centre of the village of Afytos, Beach Bar Akrogialo made a nice stop for me for breakfast.  I started out early on the morning of my visit and drove just under 10 minutes from the town of Kallithea, where I was staying.  It was one of the first beach bars on Kassandra I visited.  The bar staff were friendly and very helpful. Arriving anytime before 10.30 or 11am means you can pick the best spot to sit with a good view.

There were sun beds and parasols down on the beach and in the bar itself there were other seating areas available from a breakfast bar style to full on tables and chairs.  You can use the sun beds but you’ll be charged €10 — on top of anything else you buy.  If you sit in any of the upstairs bar areas, then it’s free.

2. Koursaros Beach Bar, Paliouri

Koursaros is another one of the lovely beach bars on Kassandra.  It’s very spacious and has a open layout and format. They’ll add a €4 additional charge if you want to use a sun lounger and parasol.  I’ve actually been to this bar before when I took the Torroneous tour from Neos Marmaras when I visited Halkidiki previously in 2019.

3. Lotos Beach Bar, Kallithea

Lotos is a relaxing little beach bar right in the main town of Kallithea.  Depending on where you access the beach, it’s a little further up from the lifeguard station closest to the Amon Zeus hotel and next to Corali Bar.

The food is very tasty and plentiful.  I ordered a Greek Salad forgetting just how large salads are in Greece and souvlaki and chips.  It’s in a great position as the bar overlooks the beach with views of the sea.

Address: Epar.Od. Paliouriou-Afitou 2, Kallithea 630 77, Greece.

4. Babewatch Beach Bar, Skala Fourkas

Babewatch Beach Bar is located in Skala Forks, Kassandra.  I loved this little beach bar.  It had such a welcoming, tropical vibe right from the entrance. It had beautiful decor with wooden and white which stood out.

The sun beds are free to use when you order something.  Now, that could have been because it was near end of season and a lot quieter than usual.  However, there are many beach bars that have this policy where you order and the sun beds are free to use.

It was a nice stretch of beach and there was more than enough parking right next to the bar and in the large field next to it.  The main town is about a 5-10 minute walk away.   If you’re in the area, definitely pass by.  The staff are friendly as is the bar dog, who also gives you a nice welcome.

5. Amfora Restaurant Beach Bar, Polychrono

If you don’t mind spending a bit more, Amfora Restaurant and Bar is a must-visit. It’s part of Sea Level Hotel.  It’s in a great location right in front of the sea and the food is certainly worth it.

I opted to have a timeout from the traditional Greek dishes I’d been eating and instead ordered a penne bolognese.  It was a nice main course – not too heavy with the meat and the tomato sauce was beautifully smooth.  

I then ordered a lemon tart with a lemon and basil sorbet dessert and a few chops of chocolate and fruit.  The presentation was mouth-watering and I almost didn’t want to spoil how lovely it looked.  But I did and it was lovely!   Amfora has both indoor and outdoor seating with the tables outside overlooking the beach and sea.

Address: Polychrono, 63085 Políkhronon, Greece.

Try and stop by at least one of these beach bars in Kassandra, Halkidiki’s second leg.  If you do, check the time of year of your visit because some of these bars may not open until the spring and will close during mid-late September.
