Kriopigi has everything you need from a holiday, all in one place. A mix of coast and countryside, contemporary and character, sun-soaking and sightseeing.


There’s a super beach of sun-bleached sand. The widest bit is at the southern end, but there are smaller, quieter coves too. Down at the seafront is the newer part of Kriopigi. Holidays tend to focus on this lively part of town, where there’s a good variety of tavernas and bars – some staying open well into the night. But don’t get the idea that this is a place to party. Evenings are essentially low-key leisure … sundowners overlooking the sea, table talk in a typical taverna …the kind of evening that’s relaxed and refreshingly cheap. Kriopigi also has another side – the old town. Set on the hillside, with views across the gulf to Sithonia, it’s a cluster of red-roofed Macedonian houses, lining a labyrinth of streets. Then you come to the countryside – a series of pine woodlands and groves of gnarled old olive trees. It’s here you’ll find the natural ‘cool spring’ (krio pigi) which gave the town its name, along with an ancient amphitheatre that’s worth the effort.
