The beaches of Arcadia

The amazing coves of Atsinganos beach at the Coastal Astros will enchant the traveler, as well as the Agios Antreas beach with its crystal clear waters.

Poulithra Beach

A little further south, 5 kilometers from Plaka, Poulithra is a sweet seaside hamlet with an island scent, a large pebbly beach and impressive stone-built mansions next to low-lined houses with flowered courtyards.

A lovely hiking route, passing through serene olive groves and next to quiet, pebbly beaches with crystal clear waters will take you about an hour's walk from Poulithra to the whitewashed church of Agios Georgios.

The beach that lies beneath it is all you need for deserted dives, away from everyone and everything

Anavalos Beach

One of the the various, quiet beaches that you can meet on the way from Astros to Argolida, before Kiveri and after Xiropigado.

The beach is on the border of the two regions and offers sand and clean water, since it took its name from the underwater source of fresh water of Anavalos that moves to Kynouria and Argolida.

In the area there is the woman monastery of St.Makrina (sister of St.Vassiliou) that started building in 1971 in the Bishopric of Argolida and nowadays there are children' s campsites. The monastery celebrates on 19th July. Today there are 12 nuns and Mother Makrina.
