Orange beach is also called Portokali and Kavourotripes, the later one meaning crab holes. This beach in Halkidiki is actually many small beaches or small white sand coves that are found over kilometers of coastline. You can explore many small beaches that are difficult to reach and these ones usually have few people.
The main beach is organized by a beach bar and is overcrowded with sun-beds and umbrellas. If you are unfortunate to find a place there are other beaches further up the coast where you may find space to relax. The last couple of years have seen more food stands being set up for the needs of the crowds. Snorkeling around the rocks is also recommended.
