Summer Holidays to Halki
Halki Sun Holidays Review and Guide
Greece is full of beautiful islands but take a summer holiday to Halki to experience one of the best but only if you want a totally relaxing lazy holiday. Life is simple on this island where the only real village of red tiled neo-classical houses arranged almost like tiers of an amphitheatre rises up the hillsides from the harbour, where monasteries and chapels abound and sometimes it feels like there are more water cisterns than people. You just naturally fall into the local pace as soon as you land in the harbour for your Halki summer holiday.
There aren't that many permanent residents on the island and when you take a summer holiday to Halki you swell the existing 200 inhabitants. They practically all live in Nimborios around the almost completely enclosed bay in pastel coloured houses that reflect in the crystal waters of the harbour. The harbour front is looked down upon by a line of windmills up on the ridge and you are guarded on your Halki summer holiday by the ruined Crusader castle on the far hill, the site of the old town which now totally deserted.
This little island has some stunning beaches. If you're looking for a sandy stretch for Halki summer holiday lazy days, head for Pandamos Beach. Ftenagia, Yiali and Kania are rocky little coves and for some real seclusion there's deserted Areta and Trachia. Away from the beaches there are plenty of bars and tavernas around the harbour to re-energise after a sedate day of Halki summer holiday sightseeing.
