These are the top beaches near Thessaloniki in my opinion!! Epanomi is my favorite beach, its super family friendly. Its an organized beach so you don't have to worry about bringing your own stuff. This is something that I struggle with because I don't usually rent a car when Im staying in Thessaloniki.

1. Epanomi
2. Agia Triada
3. Perea Beach
4. Asprovalta

Thank you for sharing this list! How do you get around while in Thessaloniki? Taxi? It seems like a pretty accessible city, and that one wouldn't necessarily need to rent a car.
