Kondyli (Agios Nikolaos): the beach you have to go

Leaving Nafplion in the direction of Candia - Iria at 17km is the stunning beach of Kondili (Agios Nikolaos).

By taking a panoramic view of the beach of Kondilli you will be compensated for the distance you have spent.

Access

Access to the beach of Kondyli - Agios Nikolaos is by private vehicle. Initially you will have to leave Nafplio in the direction of Epidaurus and just one kilometer outside Nafplion, you will meet the first big node that has three directions (Tolo - Epidavros - Athens).

After you head towards Tolo, you will find yourself in a fork after the village of Lefkakia. To the right is the road to Tolo and to the left is the road to Drepano that you have to follow.

Once you reach Drepano village (right on the main square) you should turn left in the direction of Vivari - Candia - Iria.

You have to continue another five (5) kilometers by passing the village of Vivari where along its way and between the beach and the road there are amazing fish taverns and continue the small road with many turns.

At an uphill point where the sea next to some small houses is no longer visible, there is the "Kondyli" sign. Here you have to turn right and proceed cautiously as the road is narrow, downhill and steep until you see the beach of Kondyli from above.

Type

The beach in its largest part consists of fine and coarse pebbles.

The sea is crystal clear and at most points it is abruptly deep with a large slope.

The blue flag belongs to this beach where it is famous as one of the most beautiful beaches of Argolis.

It is an ideal beach for every kind of visitor since there is plenty of space for everyone but also for couples as it is one of the most idyllic beaches, especially at sunset.

Facilities

You will find many organized Beach Bars where you can rent umbrellas with sun loungers or enjoy your drink until sunset.

For the more active there are also water sports options for rent.

The parking is free alongside the beach and there is room for everyone.

Various

For the more lonely, there is the possibility to pass to the left of the beach where a small rock separates it and cut off from the crowd.

At the bottom and end of the beach there is the small church of Agios Nikolaos where the name of the beach of Agios Nikolaos comes from there.
