Gerakini is a small town that belongs to the municipality of Polygyros. At the beginning of the 20th century Gerakini was a small settlement of workers at the mine, starting to grow after 1960. Gerakini has beautiful beaches and a good infrastructure.
Polygyros is located at the centre of the Peninsula of Chalkidiki near the Holomontas mountain. Its altitude is 560m. In its northern part there is an all green side that goes up to the top "Tsoukalas" where you can enjoy the magical view: the 3 peninsulas of Sithonia, Kassandra and Mount Athos and the picturesque islands of Diaporo, Ammouliani and Kelifou.
Halkidiki makes the heart of every beach vacationer beat faster. Miles of sandy beaches, beautiful hidden bays surrounded by blue sea and green natural paradises are just a few reasons to spend your vacations in Halkidiki.
In addition, there are many beautiful cities - some larger and some smaller. The highlight is of course Thessaloniki and worth more than one trip.
