Beautiful beaches salute you and invite you to discover them up close!

In the fairytale city of Epidaurus, a breath away from the shore of the peninsula stretches a beautiful and quiet beach with clear blue waters. However, many beautiful, cosmopolitan and quiet beaches spread around from Ancient Epidaurus, offering any kind of recreation. The fabulous Yialasi that features organized camping, bars, café-restaurants and other amenities, gathers thousands of young people who enjoy dives in the cool waters and water sports activities. Do not forget to visit the idyllic beach of Polemarcha featuring pebbles and turquoise waters and a half-finished church.

Kalamaki

Following a small path at the end of the Vagionia beach, through the lush green forest, you come up to a small quiet beach, known as Kalamaki. Its unique feature is the pine trees that go all the way down to the sea. The landscape is of unbelievable beauty! The beach is ideal for those who wish for peace and quiet. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the marvelous view and perfect isolation. However, don’t forget to take water or anything else you need beforehand, since the beach has no facilities.

Polemarcha

It’s a quite small and delightful journey to the beach of Polemarcha. If you come from Athens, just before the crossroad to the ancient Epidaurus, there is a small Parking and a country road that leads there. Actually, it’s two gorgeous beaches, surrounded by thick pine woods, totally untouched by civilization. The cove is actually between Nea Epidaurus and Ancient Epidaurus. The route is not long, but it’s a bit harsh and you’ll need to take many precautions. However, it’s a great experience and the spectacle will reward you for all your pains!
