Fava beach Halkidiki: The tiny beach of Fava is located 51 km south east of Poligiros and close to Vourvourou, a popular tourist resort in the peninsula of Sithonia with an incredible landscape of forested mountains. The beach is surrounded by greenery and some of the most amazing rock formations.
The clear waters are ideal for swimming and they are shallow enough to swim up to the weird rock islands that are scattered just about 100 m from the shore.
There are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing in the surrounding area. Some of the trips that promise a fabulous experience include a visit to the resort of Vourvourou and its fabulous beaches, or a trek up the Itamos Mountain to enjoy the best views of the bay, or a boat ride to the islands of Vourvourou just across the bay.
Greece Holidays in Halkidiki Fava Beach
Fava beach is just south of Karidi beach in Vourvourou. This beach is actually 3 beaches next to each other that are favorites of the locals. The coast is elevated with many homes and villas on the cliff and the beaches are down below and sheltered by the cliffs and rocks. Many of the houses have private paths leading to the beach but you will need to use the public trail that brings you to the beach.
There is no development here, everybody brings their own umbrella.
The beach is a mix of sand and pebble and in parts has large rocks. The water has a sand/pebble bottom and the water is shallow and super clear. Fava is a wonderful place to take a swim. From the rocks you can jump into the deeper water below.
