RATING SCALE

5 = Superb! Best we visited. Worth going far out of our way to swim there again
4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = Good. We would choose it for swimming among other beaches if we were in the area
2 = Average. We could go for swimming again if we happened to be in the area
1 = Just OK. The beach was fine for swimming and sunbathing one time
0 = Disappointing. We will not return to this beach

  • Water rating: 3/5 about
  • Access:
    Good = Paved road all the way to the beach. Parking near the beach
  • Amenities:
    Monolithi is a very long beach, so depending where you choose to swim, you can find nearby, a restaurants, bars, cafeterias, cantinas, or nothing (in this case you have to bring your own drinking water and food)
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site suitable for parking for the day, but not for camping
    Site suitable for free camping. Ample space for parking on the beach vicinity
    but beware that camping near the organized camping of Monolithi (near Nikopolis club) might not be acceptable.
  • Snorkeling:
    Sandy sea floor
  • Notes:
    Monolithi is a very long sandy beach. In certain places, and especially near the organized camping, it is organized with life guards on duty during part of the day. There are certain spots of the beach that get very crowded like in front of the Nikopolis Club, but overall the vast sandy beach allows the crowds do be distributed comfortably. Nice pine forest area frames the beach in part.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
