Peloponnese Sights




Karathona Review

The closest sandy beach to Nafplion is Karathona, about 3 km (2 mi) south of town by road or a pleasant walk first along the seaside promenade and then a dirt track (you can also get there by bus). The pine-backed sands are favored by Greek families with picnic baskets. This is an ideal spot for kids, since the waters remain shallow far out into the bay. The resort town of Tolo is a short bus ride (€1.20) from the main station in Nafplion (service every hour) or a reasonably priced taxi ride (about €17); beware, though, that the beach at Tolo is packed solid with sunburned northern Europeans in the warm months.
