The route is starting from the edge of Nafplion Town port and ends at Arvanitia Beach. Is a pedestrian walk more than a kilometer with amazing views by the sea. If you are at Nafplion is a walk you should try.

The beach is rocky, but it’s a nice walk from town and there are some great areas for pictures. There are always people there swimming in the sea. Definitely worth stopping there as you explore Nafplio.

A perfect place for a quick swim close to Nafplio city center (15 mins walking distance). Even in October the sea was warm and this beach with the terrific scenery is the ideal combination for sea lovers for a weekend close to Athens.
