Favorite of locals, along with the natural beach of Arvanitia, Karathona turns you off from the stress of everyday life, and makes you part of an image, almost exotic, in few minutes! These are the good things of Nafplio. One minute you're downtown, next remoteness.
And what remoteness! The beauty of the city's longest beach, stretches behind the Rock of Palamidi, a length of approximately three kilometers. In order to get there you can drive, or you can continue your walk, from Arvanitia square. When you reach the baech for the first time, with a quick view you may understand why Karathina is the locals favorite beach: palm trees, eucalyptus and the (island) Mouse, offer a characteristic specificity.
Perfect choice for families
At summer the beach fills (often muggy) with people sitting on deck chairs under umbrellas, dink refreshing drinks in the bars or eats in the traditional taverns.
In Karathona many private barbeque parties are organized.
Perfect beach to spend a summer evening with your friends .
