Beaches in Olympiada

Olympiada has some of the most amazing beaches in Chalkidiki. Every year the municipality of Aristotelis (where the village of Olympiada belongs) won many blue flags. A blue flag is an award taken for high quality sandy beaches and clear water.

The nearest beach from Yasoo Holidays (2 minutes walk) is inside the Olympiada village. This is the most suitable for children as it deepens gradually and has many shops around, taverns etc.

Many other organised beaches are nearby with beach bars, umbrellas, sport facilities etc. In the area of Olympiada (from 1 minute to 10 minutes car drive from Yasoo Holidays) there are about 10-15 beautiful beaches. Some of them are organised providing facilities like bars and tavernas while others are more "natural" with fewer people and more private.
