Venomous anemones in the sea
Sep. 2021
The beach is nice, large and sandy, but there are anemones in the sea which bit me, the area on my legs swole, and after three weeks I still have the marks. They can't be seen in the sea, because they look like vegetation on the rocks. We didn't go back again. I don't recommend it.

Clear water beach south of Nafplio
Jul. 2021
Karathonas is a huge bay and beach some 10-15 min drive south of Nafplio (direction after the Palamidi fortress turn).
There're plenty of free parking places and the beach has free and paying parts which have sunbeds and umbrellas.
The water is very clean, but very shallow for long which I didn't like that much.

Large beach, clean water
Aug. 2021
Extensive beach, shallow water, quite clean (unfortunately, from time to time it is polluted by private boats that... don't bother to keep in their trash...). It has quite nice cafés in the around.

Good but annoying that tourists get charged more for the same service.
Jul. 2021 • Family
Beautiful beach but Ammos seats charges 15 euros per two with umbrella and the Greeks only 10 euros. It is not true that if you get a drink the seats are free (not all places sell drinks). The sea is clean and you can’t hear music in the far right area.

AVOID - PAINFUL VENOMOUS ANEMONE STINGS
Jun. 2021 • Couples
This otherwise beautiful beach is full of venomous anemones (related to jellyfish) right at the shore. I would avoid especially with young children who play in shallow water. I wish more of a warning was given because I ended up in the local hospital with five anemone stings.- one on my knee, pictured, and four much larger ones on my backside, not pictured. The burning pain was excruciating and lasted 24 hours. I received two emergency IV’s - luckily the staff is used to handling this kind of situation as they explained that they receive patients DAILY because of this beach! I was on antibiotics and antihistamines for five days. A layer of my skin has been BURNT off by the venom. Over 10 days later I am still suffering from tentacle shaped rashes and complications due to the stings and it has really dampened my vacation. No medication is helping with the rashes. I was told to avoid pools and the sea for several days after the stings. I will have to see a dermatologist when I return home for the scar tissue and recurring rashes. Anemones are usually attached to the rocks but the currents can actually detach them and bring them to shore, which is how I was attacked.

Nice but don’t expect too much
Oct. 2020
Had a nice day at the beach. Don’t expect too much however. The beach isn’t particularly well looked after, it’s overgrown with weeds. The sun beds were free with a drink however and the sea was clear and shallow for swimming. Nice view in the distance.

Beautiful beach
Oct. 2020 • Couples
Quiet and beautiful.
Highly recommended if staying in Nafpoli and you have a car. Sunbed was included in the price of a beer. Shallow warm waters.

Beautiful sandy beach near Nafplio
Sep. 2020
Beautiful long and sandy beach a short drive from Nafplio.
We visited at a quiet time but there were several beach bars and if you purchased drinks the use of sun loungers and umbrella was discounted or free.
Plenty of parking space and nice that it's not built up and still peaceful.

Well worth a drive from Nafplio to spend a few hours at this delightful quiet beach.

Free sun loungers if we bought a drink, a bargain.

Very pretty beach.

Highly recommended.

Nice little beach - popular with locals and families
Sep. 2020
Beautiful little beach, shallow and clear water, as long as you are buying food/drink then the sun loungers are free at most of the bars/shacks...
