The “flights” over Greece give us wonderful images and colors that we may not even have imagined exist so close to us. Like for example a unique in pictures area very close to Athens. It is the Vivari lagoon which is about half an hour from Nafplio. The scenery consists of turquoise crystal clear waters and touches of rocks, greenery, and chapels. Like a real painting. The images above reveal the rare beauty. The beauty of a Greece that is close to us and many times we do not see it.
The lagoon two hours away from Athens
Vivari is the turquoise lagoon of Argolida that many do not know. But if you see its colors once, you don’t forget it. It takes its name from the homonymous fishing village of Argolida which is equally beautiful. The characteristic of the lagoon of Vivari is that it has been declared a protected area because of its great ecological interest. More specifically, the lagoon is home to thousands of fish and many rare species of birds, such as herons, cormorants, kingfishers, swans, and ducks.
The lake receives water from the sea through a communication channel 23 m long and 23 m wide, while there is a marsh from which sweet waters gush.
In the past, it was used as a natural fish farm for the cultivation of head, sea bream, laura, and tongue. The village of Vivari is an ideal destination for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
The blue-green Kondyli beach in Argolida
In this beautiful lagoon is also the exotic beach of Kondyli. A beach with turquoise waters and special beauty. It’s a Blue Flag beach that if you visit once, you’ll definitely visit it again. In Kondyli, apart from the beautiful sandy beach, there are also some enchanting lakes that have all shades of brown/orange.
The whole picture will be completed by the picturesque church of Agios Nikolaos. If you’re in the area, you should know it’s only accessible by boat.
You can enjoy a flight over this unknown in many lagoons with the help of the Haanity channel on Youtube.
Exploring Greece and discovering such beautiful corners is one of our favorite hobbies. Let’s travel together!
