Buses around Halkidiki

Buses around Halkidiki


My boyfriend and I are going to Afitos at the end of September and we were hoping we could use public transport to travel to some of the other towns and villages, but I'm having difficulty finding any information on buses - i.e. how often they run, ideas of prices and times etc. Does anyone know of a website where I can find this information or who can give me an idea of how easy travelling around the penisular by bus is?

Here it is:


Afitos or Athitos is the same.

Remember that to go to Sithonia peninsula, you must change buses at Nea Moudania town. So, check the time of arrival to Nea Moudania from Afitos, then from Nea Moudania to your destination in Sithonia or Athos.


As of prices, they vary from EUR 3 to 9, one way.

None of the villages along the coast from Afitos are far apart - a few KMs between each. Taxis are also a good way to get from village to village. Most villages have a taxi rank although it's probably quicker to get your hotel to call one. Buses are cheap but not necessarily frequent. There is usually a timetable posted at the bus stop or your hotel should be able to give you details. I recommend you visit Kalithea for its shops and lovely beach, Hanioti for it's busy square especially at night with plenty of bars, tavernas and shops and also Polichrono or Pefkohori to walk along the promenade. If you get the opportunity a boat trip to Mount Athos or accross to Sithonia is a nice day out. If you are happy to hire a car for a few days the drive round the Sithonia peninsula is very scenic with some lovely quiet beaches and pretty villages to stop at. Also with a car you can get to the caves at Petralona which are worth a visit.
