Camping Stavros: "Out of the way Sithonia campground" Prefecture of Chalkidiki Hotel Tip by Panos1111

Prefecture of Chalkidiki Hotels: 34 reviews and 30 photos

The campground is 6 km from the N.Marmaras resort (Porto Carras, a huge resort) and town, and there is absolutely no building in these 6 km. It is on an isolated, quiet, small and sandy beach, although many small boats use the small bay and you have to swim between the buoys. The campground has lots of shade from olive trees. It is overall quiet, clean and pleasant. The owner told us he has been there for 45 years, the campground has been going well for 30, and he'd planted the olive trees in case tourism didn't work out well. It is used almost exclusively by caravans/campavans, we only saw two tents, but it was only the start of the season. There is a small hotel next door, ran by the same family, it's a great place to have a coffee because of the view of the bay. The grounds are immaculately and rather obsessively clean although, having said that they don't provide toilet paper or soap in the toilets, which we found bizzare and cheap given the fact they charge 19 Euro per night for a tent for 2 people. There is a corner shop, and a restaurant within the grounds that I liked. There is no room for extra activities like a beach volleyball court or a beach bar (which is OK). Another good thing is that there is natural shade on the beach and lots of fish in the bay for those who like fishing and have a boat. The old couple that owns it is very pleasant and helpful, not so the son who seemed short in his behaviour.

Unique Qualities: Good beach. Camping under the olive trees. Organised and clean.

Address: Ayia Kyriaki, Neos Marmaras, 63081
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Go past the P.Carras resort and continue on the main road. There is a sign a few km later, on the right, for the campground. Do not take this turn as it will lead to a 6 km windy road. Take the next turn which will take you to there much more quickly.
