“The sun and the sea” of the Argolic gulf .

The Argolicgulf  has enchanting beaches and the “sun and the sea” of the Argolic gulf  is charming.

“With the main feature of the area the” meeting “of the beautiful mountain with the sparkling sea, the Municipality of North Kynouria invites its visitors on a magical journey.”

The sun and the sea of ​​the Argolic Astros and Agiannis perfectly combine “the mountain and the sea”, which is why many prefer Astros for their holidays. The change of landscape from the blue of the sea to the green of the plain and the mountain  is a pleasant.

Whoever tries once comes back and becomes permanent….

Portes beach and Argolikos gulf

 At Portes beach ended one of the two drainage canals, built by Bavarian engineers, during the reign of Otto… (The other is the well-known canal from Moustos to the sea). The purpose of the drainage channels was to reduce the area of ​​the Moustos swamp and thus alleviate the problem of malaria, which was the scourge of the area.… The Doors were two iron doors, attached to the three elegant “legs”, which did not block the water of the Moustos to roll in the sea, but when Batis was caught the Doors closed with the blows of the first waves… Thus they prevented the marsh from being refilled with sea water… This project, limiting the extent of the marsh and the problems it created, acted as a catalyst for the development of the whole area .

“The island” Paralio Astros,

The most picturesque Paralio Astros, “the island” Paralio Astros, is perched on the hill and the ancients called the hill the “island”. Paralio Astros has nothing to envy from any Aegean island, it has it all, it is only two hours from Athens, it is very close “to the mountain” Parnonas, from its port the access to the “Aegean islands” is easy, is located close to the most important archaeological sites of our country and is very close to the historic Astros( 4 km), the historic Agiannis (21 km) and beautiful historical traditional villages.

For visitors Kynouria has a number of activities depending on the mood and physical endurance! Of course in summer the beaches of the area are full of life and invite the visitor to enjoy them. Portes, Atsiganos, Anavalos, Xiropigado, Heronissi, Arkadiko village and Kryoneri, are just some of the options we suggest!
