On the upper side of the Corinthian Sea, there is a beach that doesn't remind of anything of mainland Greece. It's like you've taken a boat and been on an exotic island. Saranti Beach is located where Viotia ends in the sea and is a pebbled beach with crystal clear and calm waters. The advantage is that it is just an hour and a half away from Athens. The area also has cheap accommodation if you want to spend the night there. See exactly where the beach is HERE.
How would you like to swim overlooking an archeological site? And yet it is possible and just two hours away from Athens. Here you will see it with your own eyes. You will swim enjoying images that will seem that they are taken out of an old fairy tale book. The archaeological sites are a kilometer away from the lake. A unique experience that is just an hour's drive, 18 km outside Loutraki. See how you get to Heraion HERE
It is like a small island and has a cosmopolitan sense and it is just next to Athens. Vrachati is the cosmopolitan corner of the Peloponnese located next to the sea, 12 km west of the city of Corinth, 93 km away from Athens, and about two hours through the new highway from Patras. You will easily reach and enjoy a swim in the crystal clear blue waters. The beach of Vrachati has thin pebbles as sand, but it is not sandy. See exactly where the beach is HERE.
