About 6km north of Sarti there is a cluster of small beaches in a coastline which is over 5km. This relief landscape of unparallel beauty looks like an open-air market of sculpture exhibition which in conjunction with the amazing turquoise waters and the view to Mount Athos compensates the visitor who has been afflicted through the bushes and the rocks in order to find these beaches. To find these beaches you need to leave the main street of east Sithonia and cross a very difficult dirt road for about 350 meters up to the coastline.
There is a group of small beaches which continue from Orange beach to the south to Platanitsi is Almyrompares beach and north to Armenistis is the Kampouris beach. It can be a little difficult to reach these beaches through the bush. There is absolutely no development and many campers illegally set up tents in the trees and on the rocks.
These beaches are known as Kavourotripes (=crab-holes). Certainly there are also other exits, before and after, in order to find the Kavourotripes, but pay attention to the dirt roads which are very steep.
Wonderful green and blue waters and also sculptures are carved on the rocks by several artists adorn these beaches The only organized beach is that of the ‘ Orange Beach ’ while the others are isolated and deserted. There is also a possibility to visit these beaches on foot through the coast but pay extreme attention to the bushes and the rocks because the passes are rough and sometimes dangerous.
Kavourotripes, really a heavenly place on Halkidiki!
