  • Notes:
    This is a review of the beach to the east of the harbor right in Palia Epidavros town. This beach looks like it was put togehter with  buldozer and a few trucks dumping sand and cobbles to create a "beach" in town. Needless to say, the result is sad if that was the case.

    There is an organized camping to the east of Palea epidavros and the beach in front of it is probably the best if you find yourself in the immediate area.

    Comments: I have read a rather condemning report regarding beaches in this area. However, I have just returned from Palea Epidavros and the beaches are not the best but they are more than adequate. About 20 mins walk out of town are beautiful sandy beaches but the sea floor is stoney and not suitable for children. The sea is extremely clean in the whole of the Epidauros bay, there are jellyfish but these are harmless and almost tame! I would thoroughly recommend a holiday to this part of Greece as it is so unspoilt.

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.
