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

  • Notes:
    Nafplio is one of the most beautiful towns of Greece, and Argolida is one of the most historic prefectures, so there is plenty of reasons to visit the area. Staying in Nafplio town is recommended, and if you do, the town's beach would be sufficient for cooling off during the heat of the summer. The beach is clean, not crowded, and relatively quiet, but the deserted hotel skeleton that frames it adds a depressing and unsettling aura to the place.

    You can reach the beach through the road that connects it to the city, or via a long walkway that begins on the north end of Nafplio (beyond all the cafeterias). When we visited, there was a gate and a sign that forbids access to the walkway, but we took the locals advice and went through the chain-link fence through the opening just like everyone else did. We found the long walk a pleasant one.
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.
