Climb beyond the village to the olive groves above and you’re rewarded with gorgeous views of Polichrono and the sea.
The new ‘resort’ area is purpose built, exactly where you want it, right next to the beach. The 1km of gently shelving sand and pebble beach is ideal for families, and the sea’s perfect for floating and crystal clear for snorkelling. The waterfront is lined with cafes and eateries. After dark the bars and tavernas provide the easy tempo for low-key, leisurely nights.
Sun worshippers can relax and top up their tan on the long stretch of sand and fine shingle. Pedalo and sunbed hire is also available on the beach.
There are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Nightlife is very low-key with evenings focused on candlelit dinners in quiet tavernas and a couple of glasses of your favourite drink in one of the beachside bars.
Although you can find basic shopping and souvenir opportunities in Polichrono, those searching for some serious shopping should make their way to Thessaloniki.
Polichrono gives you a mix of old and new, character and charm. In traditional Greek style, the original village was built a little way inland, its sturdy houses topped with red roofs and splashed with colourful cascades of bougainvillea.
