Beaches of Methana

The summer continues, as do Katheti’s features on the beaches of the area. Methana is next! The beaches of Methana add their own character to the mosaic that composes the coasts of our region. They connect the wild beauty of the peninsula’s mountains with the endless blue of the sea and offer us another chance to escape.

Organization and comfort!

We begin the exploration with the beach of Agioi Anargyri. It is located next to the namesake island, within the coastline of the Spa Town of Methana. The beach is beautiful, long with sand, fine pebbles and crystal-clear waters. It is organized, it has umbrellas, sunbeds and chairs, and it is ideal for water games and sports.

Karastamati Coast is located near the Spa Town of Methana, in the area where the Karastamati’s thermal water bottling plant was located.

It is an organized, beautiful small beach, with fine pebbles, brownish-red sand and natural shade at its edge.

Near Methana is also the beach of Agios Nikolaos of Loutra, in front of the namesake thermal chloride-sodium springs and the chapel of Agios Nikolaos.

Continuing, we reach the largest and most touristic beach of the peninsula. This is Limniona, a verdant organized beach, with sand, fine pebbles and green-blue waters.

Below the village of Agioi Theodoroi and opposite Aegina, is the beach of Foflakas. It has dark, large red and black pebbles and deep-colored crystal-clear waters. The beach is not organized and the shores around it are rocky.

Inside its picturesque harbor, Agios Georgios has a sandy beach with calm, shallow waters. Its waters are crystal-clear and so shallow that you can walk to the concrete German ship opposite it. On the beach, there are two picturesque taverns, where you can dine or drink your coffee.

Before reaching the settlement of Agios Georgios, we encounter a large beach surrounded by bushes, that has large red, gray and black pebbles and a rocky bottom.

After Agios Georgios, on the coastal road, on the way to Agios Nikolaos, we find another large beach, with similar characteristics. 

 

The beach of Agios Nikolaos has wooden umbrellas and benches. On the coast, it has fine pebbles, while the sea bed has the large volcanic pebbles of Methana. This is a very quiet beach, with crystal-clear and transparent waters, located next to the small port of Agios Nikolaos.

Next to the coastal road, from Vathi to Kammeni Chora, is Mouha beach. It is a small beach with red, gray and black volcanic pebbles, surrounded by greenery and a few houses. 

Vathi beach is located in the Gulf of Epidaurus, along the coastal road from Steno to Vathi. It is a long, narrow beach, along the road and the houses. It has volcanic, large pebbles and is very quiet.

Finally, the beach of Paleokastro is also located in the Gulf of Epidaurus, on the coastal road from Steno to Vathi, shortly after the Cave of Peristera.

It is an unorganized and quiet beach, with the characteristic large red-gray-black volcanic pebbles and the turquoise-dark blue waters of Methana. 

Our trip to the beaches of Methana has been completed. Along with it, Katheti’s features on the beaches of the area are also completed. But the exploration of our area is not over. A series of articles for the promotion of all the elements that compose its particular character follows. Poros beachesTroizinia beaches, hiking trails and fishing trips are just a few examples of the many advantages of our area.
