Photographer's Note

This weekend we went to Ouranoupoli Halkidiki. The weather was so hot we did swim in the sea, although it is late September.
AmmoulianiI is the only inhabited island of Halkidiki that charms every visitor since it's the place where everyone can find anything they dream of in an area of only 4,5 km2. Ammouliani is located 120 km from Thessaloniki and is connected by frequent ferryboat routes that last only 10 minutes to Tripiti, the beach located across the island.
With very little luggage, you will find in Ammouliani a heaven on earth to be carefree and relaxed. This island is an idyllic combination of fine, golden sand, aquamarine sea, vegetation and giant rocks.
Its isolated bays are the ideal destination for those that desire peace and relaxation, while you can get involved in all sorts of water sports at its sandy beaches.
SWIMMING
The best thing you can do is to choose to visit all the island's beaches even the most isolated ones. Each one has its way to charm you and make you want to visit it every day. Most beaches are sandy and you can reach them either on foot or by a cart, a unique experience on the way to Alikes. After visiting the beaches of Ammouliani, you can go on a daily excursion by boat to the nearby islands of Gaidouronisi, Tigani and Pontiki so as to enjoy your swim in their emerald crystal clear waters and have lunch on the sand at the makeshift taverns that are built there.
