  • The site is easy to find. The sea is easy to access. It has a great taverna close by. snorkelling makes it a better experience  more »
  • It worth spending 2-3 hours in this beautiful small beach snorkeling! The ruins are amazing and you can feel them as they are only less than 2m deep. Not to miss if you are in Epidavros!  more »
  • Wow! Very easy to find on Google maps but need to search for Sunken City of Epidauros' you will see Google mark on the water where the actual location is. It was interesting for everyone in our family. It is not deep at all and very close to the beach. Be aware of sea urchins!!! Many many many of them so take shoes or fins. I will definitely recommend 😊. Very nice and cheap taverna 'Karydia' near the beach only 5 min away.
  • This is our second visit, for snorkelling, a little swimming and a very good lunch at the beach taverna. Our older kids wanted to swim, and we didn't, so this was a perfect solution. It's a beach of grey sand and pebbles. The interesting underwater remains are just 50m along the beach, in about 2m of water, in a sheltered bay with beautiful views. It's very quiet first thing in the morning, busier in the afternoon. There are lots of sea urchins in the shallows directly in front of the underwater remains so it's better to get in the water near the concrete jetty and swim across. Lots of families enjoying the water today, and we had a superb meal for two at the beach taverna. Great value and a friendly welcome. Recommended.
