Tourist season 2019 at a satisfactory level
The 2019 tourist season for Halkidiki came to a satisfactory end, as the continued sunshine helped to balance any losses at its inception. The same opinion was expressed by the President of the Halkidiki Hoteliers Association Mr. Tasios at the launch of the 35th Thessaloniki Tourism Fair, stressing with relative satisfaction that despite initial forecasts, the number of tourists was approximately the same as in the previous season. The months of September and October were upward as hotels and lodgings continued to reach 70% - 80% occupancy. Tourists from the Balkan Peninsula moved to the same levels as last year with their first choice of short-term rental properties. Estimates for next season are showing that a stagnant Brexit situation will give deep breaths to Halkidiki's tourism, expecting about 80.000 arrivals.
