    Site suitable for parking for the day, but not for camping

    Not very good for snorkeling
  • Notes:
    This is the beach right in Nafpaktos town, to the west of the harbor The western part (picture above) is called Psani beach, and the eastern part is called Gribovo.

    It is a comfortable beach to swim if you are in Nafpaktos town, but not really an attraction that someone would be going out of their way to visit. Part of the beach is lined up with restaurants and cafeterias and there is a children's playground right on te beach. The fort that divides the beaches adds to the charm and introduces the picturesque harbor of Nafpaktos town.

    If you have a vehicle, there are several other beaches around Nafpaktos that would be better for swimming.

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.
