Kourouta Beach

Reviewed By Goroz - Greece

Long sandy beach, full of beach bars, sun beds, parasols etc. During summer and especially in August is full of visitors and holds the title of the hot spot place to be in Elias region of Peloponnese. Five km from Amaliada city and 20 km from Pyrgos, is the summer destination to chill out, swim, have some rest or …. summer party, all day and night …

Skafidia Beach

Reviewed By evalia99 - Athens, Greece

When talking about Skafidia beach most people refer to the one that stretches out in front of the all-inclusive Aldemar hotel. In fact, Skafidia is a tiny little bay to the right of the hotel that you need to drive through Skafidia village to get to. Anyway, the large beach is nice and sandy with lots of umbrellas to rent whereas the other one is a rather small one that you need to squeeze in among other people with no guaranteed view of the sea itself. Again some umbrellas and sunbeds to use for free with the obligation to order something from the beach bar. Very clean, shallow waters for both Beaches, however they seem to be battered by winds all summer and it is very rarely you will see any calm waters, especially in August. We've been told by friends who stayed at the all-inclusive hotel that they did not get the chance to swim in the sea for the whole of their 10-day stay. However, due to the shallow waters it is fun to swim with the waves, especially for kids who did not get enough of it. For parents, it was not as relaxing as we wanted, as we had to keep an eye on the kids most of the time.

Archaeological Museum of Ancient Elis

Reviewed By Spiros Z - Amaliada, Greece

If you happen to be around Ilia you should visit this now well known museum which is located as people say at the birth place of the olympic games. You should walk around the archeological site and near by there is a lake that is worth visiting. You should combine your visit to this museum with a visit to the Ancient Olympia museum and have a whole picture about the history of the olympic games.

Beer-Bike Katakolo

Reviewed By Noins - West Kirby, United Kingdom

An excellent trip by the harbour, seen beer bikes before and wanted to try them. Great fun, best of all Yannis and Georgio were excellent hosts, really good fun, they had my wife Greek dancing in the Sunshine while I drank beer and listened to Georgio stories, what more can you ask for. Would highly recommend this for anyone. It's not too hard to pedal either, we managed it with just 4 of us.

Reviewed By tradIndy - indy

We had the beach to ourselves in late may. There's a small marina for small boats (no cruise ships here). An excellent restaurant next to the port called Porto Marine Fish Grill Restaurant Beach Bar (ΣΚΟΥΡΘΟΥΝΤΑΣ) gave us the best meal of a 2 week trip.
There's a small modern sculpture of a mermaid at the ports entrance.

Agia Marina Beach

Reviewed By ChrisWOwens - London, United Kingdom

Went with a friend to spend the day there. Nice beach, with warm water. You don't have to pay for loungers and umbrellas if you buy something like a coffee from the kantina.
Food and drinks are cheap and staff can take your order at the loungers. The water is very clear and the beach nice and sandy.
family friendly. you can see Zakynthos in the distance.

Marathias Forest

Reviewed By baouftou

This forest would be nice, but... It's full of trast, the old cinema inside is closed and left to decompose there. The beach just infront of the forest is nice because there are no businesses there but other than that its dirty and always a spot for lurkers. Last thing and really important. There were several dogs abandoned in the forest. Be carefull of dogs that barely live, unfed and untreated.... Fix your forest!!!
