The Peloponnese Sights


  • Beach–Sight

Updated 10/07/2014

Fodor's Review

The closest sandy beach to Nafplion, Karathona is easy to reach by road (just keep following 25 Maritou street) or a pleasant walk first along the seaside promenade and then a dirt track (you can also get there by bus in summer). The pine-backed sands are favored by Greek families with picnic baskets, and this is an ideal spot for kids, since the waters remain shallow far out into the bay. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available (about €5), though a pine grove behind the sands provides plenty of nice shady spots. Several tavernas back the beach. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming; walking.
