The Ikos Olivia Resort is within close proximity to many of the top attractions in Halkidiki, a number of which have been detailed below.
The ancient city of Stagira is mostly known today as the birthplace of Aristotle, a figure remembered around the world as one of the fathers of western philosophy. Today, visitors can take a walk along the old city walls, and take in the same view that once inspired one of the greatest minds in history.
Also known as the Cave of the Red Stones, Petralona Cave is easily one of the most intriguing attractions in Halkidiki. Unearthed in 1959, Petralona Cave soon gained the interest of geologists and tourists alike with the discovery of what would become known as the ‘Petralona skull’. Found suspended by rock 12 inches above the ground, the skull is estimated to be between 200 and 400 thousand years old!
Beaches in Halkidiki are well known to be among the most beautiful beaches in Greece. Currently, Halkidiki is home to 71 Blue-flag beaches, many of which are only a stone’s throw away from the Ikos Olivia resort, which itself has its own private beach!
