The small beach of Agios Andreas, which in ancient times was the natural harbor for Ancient Olympia, lies northwest of Katakolon, only 5 minutes by car. The waters are blue and green, while pines reach the sea forming a unique landscape. It is one of the most popular destinations both for its natural beauty, but also for the beach bars and restaurants. Here you can combine swimming, music, a drink and a meal. The sunset is spectacular too.
It reminds you of a landscape painting, with its fine sand, shallow light blue waters and green background. The landmark of the area is the luxurious hotel resort of Aldemar which boasts one of the best organized beaches. This idyllic spot offers a choice of water sports and facilities like restaurants and cafes. Only 8 km away from Katakolon’s port.
Arkoudi is a short, but wide beach, with straw umbrellas scattered around, awarded with a blue flag from EU for its clean water. Located 46 km from the port of Katakolon and only 1 km from the Iamatic Baths of Kyllini, this picturesque village attracks visitors from the very beginning. The waters are usually warm and there are several tourist shops and hotels in the vicinity. For those interested in fishing, the rocks at the end of the beach are perfect fishing spot.
