    Pounta is a well established RV hub. The vast sandy land just behind the beach sand dunes is an huge RV parking lot. Many campers choose to camp in Pounta to enjoy ample space near a beautiful beach. There are no facilities so you must get fill up your water tank elswhere, but Neaolis is nearby, and Pounta port (where ferries leave for Elafonisos island) is just around the corner with a few shops for the immediate necessities.
  • Snorkeling:
    Sandy sea floor
  • Notes:
    This is the beach next to the ferries that take cars to Elafonisos. Very fine sand, many RV campers behind the beach. It is a favorite beach with locals who enjoy the soft sand and the beautiful waters.
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.
