Diaporos Island itself is renowned for its beautiful natural scenery and water activities. It’s dotted with smaller islands and bays just waiting to be explored, and because of its sheltered, calm and crystal-clear waters is the perfect place to go swimming and snorkelling. For exploring more of this excellent part of Greece, the island is a short boat ride from mainland Halkidiki.
Villa Metaxa boasts an unrivalled location on the unspoilt island of Diaporos, northern Greece. It’s on a private bay and is surrounded by a natural forest. With only a couple of holiday properties on the island, it remains one of Halkidiki’s unexploited areas, which explains how its retained its pure natural beauty. For picking up fresh local produce or holiday essentials, Diaporos is right across the Greek mainland from Vourvourou village on the Sithonia peninsula. There you’ll find a couple of local shops and restaurants, as well as pine forests to explore and sandy beaches.
Diaporos Island is located 5 min by boat from Vourvourou and 10 min from the village Ormos Panagias which have some of Halkidiki's best fish restaurants.
It’s a really intimate & private place surrounded by stunning beaches and crystal clear water. There is a complimentary transfer via the resort's pontoon boat to Vourvourou where there is secure parking. Each villa has a pontoon boat 5m which can be driven without license.

The Blue Lagoon is also an extraordinary marvel in Halkidiki. It's a small strait between Diaporos Island and another small island and has a shallow bay with a white sandy bottom. This combination of sand and the shallow depth allows for a glacier blue colour to the water. From above it appears as if somebody turned on the underwater lights to illuminate the lagoon like a brilliant gem – it’s stunning! For lazy afternoons on the beach, Vourvourou also has an excellent option, or you could head to Karidi on the south end. It’s known as one of Halkidiki’s most photogenic beaches with powder-soft sand.
