The way to Karathona is very beautiful when you go down the mountain road and approach the sea which is calling you. I came there with my wife and two kids. Before that we saw some nice pics of the place and the reality was...More

If you have Nafplion as your base, it is very easy to enjoy one of the largest beaches of Argolida, Karathona, located about 5 kilometers from the capital of the prefecture. Hidden in the middle of two bays and behind the rock of Palamidi, it...More

and not the cheapest either, chairs and umbrellas cost a lot. My friends spent the whole day on that beach, I only spent an hour when I picked them up. They were not very enthusiastic about the Karathona beach. We checked out the 3 restaurants,...More

This is a really beautiful, long, sandy beach in a natural, unspoilt amphitheatre of a bay. The eucalyptus and pine trees and greenery surrounding make it idyllic. Barely a building in sight except for about 5 or 6 beach cafe's and bars at intervals. It...More

A lovely beach, shallow and safe for children but unfortunately often there is a smell that drifts in the wind from the rubbish site on the far side over the hill, the smell of burning rubbish which should not be allowed. The local council doesn’t...More
