With hotel prices rising by 30-50 percent compared to last year, Halkidiki has become a pricey holiday destination. In 2018, finding cheap accommodation in Sithonia was far from easy. In fact, there were no double rooms below 50 euros at all. While looking for where to stay in Halkidiki Sithonia we found out that some small villages on the Eastern coast still offer good prices for the accommodation. Still, in peak season, there is a problem with the availability.
Ormos Panagias is a nice resort in Halkidiki, Sithonia with good chances to find an affordable hotel room. In general, Ormos Panagias is quite small, so each location is close to the sea.
In July 2018 we stayed in Alexandros hotel while our friends chose the Coralli studios.
