The closest beach to Patras is a long stretch of white sand washed by crystal-clear waters. Even so, crowds, a sea of beach umbrellas, freighter traffic, and the looming presence of the Rion suspension bridge spanning the narrows leading into the gulf of Corinth make for a less than idyllic experience. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming.
