Beaches

The crystal blue waters of the Ionian Sea are just one more reason to visit the region of Olympia. Golden sands beneath the summer sun, small traditional taverns, cafes and other recreational areas offer comfort, moments of pleasure and relaxation. Many beaches have been awarded gold stars and the blue flag in recognition of their beauty and purity. Some of those beaches are:

Skafidia beach:

A top beach in Western Peloponnese. Golden sand, clear blue waters, simple and green background from the wooded area behind the beach. In this beach is the luxurious Olympia Village chain Aldemar.

Near the ancient site of Olympia on the west coast of the Peloponnese lies the impressive and extensive Olympian Village.This large resort stretches dreamily across golden sands and, as you might expect from an area with such a renowned sporting tradition, tennis, volleyball and watersports are all available here.

This is an ideal destination for children, one which offers energetic families a range of daily activities, plus a mini-club, supervised by trained professionals, to keep young guests amused; and because parents know their little ones are safe in the secure and sizeable grounds, they have a chance to indulge in invigorating spa treatments and relaxing saunas.
