Greece in the world is known by many things, from history to the amazing landscapes and sunsets that only this country will offer you. For two years in a row I have been working there, meeting and hangin’ around with my greek crew and having a blast. You see, Greece is not all about Olympics and Goddess or olive oils. It’s so much more than that. Drinking coffee in Greece is a way of culture. Greek people love to spend their free time with family and friends in tavernas out, with a seaview. Beside the great cuisine that is a mix of olive oil and spices, you can’t get enough of the beautiful people around you, the great frappe and tasty greek salad, urban music, clean beaches and all those landscapes that only God and Zeus can create in their secret project ” Greece, the middle name of heaven”. From what I have seen and discovered , I’m sharing with you my impression and warm recommendations of what is the best places for going out, on which beach to lay and relax, where are the best crepes around,coffee bars etc.
The town that never sleeps,and it’s a great city offering you great things to do. For a coffee break try the Boston and Friends on the Aristotelis Square or if you wanna great food and glass of wine visit the “Kitchen Bar” or “Brothers in Law” . Feta cheese with almonds and honey or Santorini salad … Are you ready to get drown in the sea of tastes? Believe me, it’s worth dying for. And no one needs to save you.These are the IT places where you will see great people, feel positive vibes and drink great coffee with a sea view. A coffee with a cookie served it is a must.
For the nightlife, try the famous Valaoritou street, where are many good bars offering you cool electro vibes, good service and promising you great night. Personally, my warm recommendation is the bar “The Real Rockenrolla” where you will have a blast, I promise you. Usually you will see around the DJ many guys or girls, but don’t wonder, they just enjoy in the music art and are the current support.
Halkidiki – the first finger
From Afytos , then Kalithea to Hanioti all these small villages have to offer you great beaches and clean sea, Sunsets that are worth seeing, beach bars and parties that you won’t find anywhere else near. Chalkidiki is the place where many Greeks from Thessaloniki or as they call Salonica come to enjoy in their weekend into their holiday houses. Here you will see the typical Mediterranean architecture with stones , white walls and blue windows. Yes, sounds like the true Greek style. In Afytos you can eat great cuisine and get amazed about the mix of Italian and Greek culture. From the great stone balcony, you can catch the one of a kind sunset.
Kalithea is known for the best night life and summer clubs. Pearl and Angels are must see! With a such a beautiful people, great service indoor and outdoor Pearl is known as the “fancy club” while Angles as the “after party club”. Both of them are worth visiting. Great music vibes by the famous greek DJ Kanakis and people dancing until the sun comes up.
Hanioti is the last village for my warm recommendation where you will eat the best crepes at Platia, attend the best beach bar parties at the Molos Beach and eat in great tavernas such as To Elenikon, and have the best coffee and view at the Paralio Bar, where the owner and his amazing family will make you feel like home, and you will want to come back again every year.
On Molos Beach you will have to reserve a sun bed, cuz usually it’s crowded. But don’t worry this is because it is one of the best beach bars, where you will be satisfied from the service and what Molos have to offer you. You can’t get bored with Molos. Greek hot guys and girls ,tattooed handsome bodies covered with oil and Caroten, white smile and great style. Can you handle it? Book your tickets asap, and have a great Summer.
My next destination is : Mykonos.
