Hello,

Could those of you have have been to Halkidiki, Hanioti in particular, comment on what the weather/temperature was like? I'm wanting to go in July so hopefully some of you will have been during July! Does it get cold at night during the summer?

Slightly worried that it won't be as hot as I'm used to! I know it's not summer yet but had a look on weather and it says it's 7 degrees right now compared with 17 degrees on some of the Greek Islands! sad smiley

Many Thanks!

Do not worry it is hot in july often well over 30 c, it is still very warm at night. I always yake a pair of jeans but have never worn them in july or august, I never learn. Just go and enjoy yourself, I bet you will return very soon. We all do this what helps keep this site so popular.

Don't worry - in July it will be scorchio!

It is colder than a lot of the islands in the winter as it is so much further north (and Crete is as far south as you can go in Greece) but it all levels out in the height of summer.

I was there early July last year (and will be the same this year) and it was roasting - high 30s. It was also very warm in the evenings, no cardis or jumpers required.

Thank you! That has put my mind at rest. I'd just read a number of reviews where people had said they'd had bad weather. They hadn't said which month they were there so I wasn't sure what to think!

It can be bad early & late season (May & Sept) due to being so far north, but July & August are pretty much guaranteed sunshine.

It does occasionally rain, but it is usually at night, and if you are unlucky enough to get a storm it rarely lasts more than a day. Weather everywhere nowadays is a bit of a gamble, but July & August are normally gorgeous weather - last year was even verging on too hot...!!

Thanks Carolinus!

Have you stayed in or been to Hanioti? If so, what's the beach like there? Sandy or rocky? Someone said you need to wear beach shoes to go in the sea...!! confused smiley

I do know Hanioti quite well, there is a very long beach, parts of which are sandy and parts are pebbly. Most of the beaches in Halkidiki ae like that, but if you walk along a bit, rather than just plonking yourself down in the middle of the beach you will find sandier areas.

I NEVER wear shoes into the sea, the people who have said that must have gone to a stoney part of the beach and not realised that if they walked 5 mins in either direction they would get perfect sand! And it certainly isn't rocky!

It's a lovely village, as others have said, the main tourists are couples and families, but there are still quite a lot of young there, with a good selection of lively bars. The nightlife scene isn't really clubbing / dance orientated, more chilling out with cocktails. 'Sunshine' is a lively bar just off the square that attracts the younger crowd - they have dance music and fish bowl cocktails if that is your scene....

Hi everyone,

I'm off to Halkidiki...thessaloniki... on Thursday. The weather forecast is saying heavy rain so far which doesn't look too good. Someone please tell me the weather forecast is wrong and it will be beautiful! We went in June last year and had nothing but 30 degree heat!!!

try looking at www.meteo.gr. It is available for a few days worth of forecasts in English. You need to hit the Makedonia, then Kassandra region. I have just looked at the forecast but it is currently being updated so only a few days worth to see. It does say rain on Thursday, but I shouldnt worry too much. If it rains it usually clear up quickly, and if you are unlucky enough to get a whole day of rain it doesnt usually go more than that.

Try checking the website out later when it has been updated.

Hi Gemma

Just checked the forecast and it's looking better than yesterday. I'm sure it won't rain for all of your hols. I've been to Hanioti for the last two years and only had rain once. We fly out on Thursday too. Where are you going from?

Hi Carole,

Thats good to hear, i'm just keeping my fingers crossed on the weather front. We fly from Manchester...getting quite excited now. We're stopping in Pefkohori, never been to Greece before so its a bit of an unknown. Are you stopping in Hanioti Carole?

Hi Gemma

We're going frm Manchester too, 07:50 flight. I'm going with my 16 yr old son and his mate. This is my 3rd. time to Hanioti. You'll love it, haven't been to Pefkohori but if you look at some of the threads on here you'll see that everyone who's been loves it. Halkidiki casts a spell on ppl and you'll want to go back I'm sure. Only ever been for a week but this time going for 2 so intend to do some exploring.

Have a brill time.

Hi Carole,

Hey small world eh, thats the same flight time as us. I'm going with my boyfriend, if u do see us at the airport give us a shout, i've got long dark hair and my boyfriend looks a bit like owen wilson lol. Yeah i've been looking though the threads and people have a lot of good things to say about Pefkohori so am really looking forward to it, i'll keep my fingers crossed for the weather for both of us.

If i dont see u at the airport have a lovely holiday
