Plenty of beach bars and the umbrella and sunbeds are included in the price of the coffee or drinks at 3,50 € per person. The coffee is not very good at some beach bars...

Shipwreck Dimitrios

Reviewed By Alessandra B - Athens, Attiki, Greece

Perfect if you like a trifle hounted atmosphere for your swim. The water is very accessible, warm to hot, so clear that carretta carrettas have their favorite nesting spots on the shore. No danger if you swim behind the wreck, but if you enter you do it at your own risck. The rust is not polluting as a reviewer wrote: the water is full of life!
Black spots: I detest noisy tavernas on the beach and turists who do'nt consider the garbage bin as an option, trashing the dunes with plastic and tins. I use to collect the garbage in plastic bags I carry with me to the garbage general, and the sorroundig tourists stearing at me with an odd glance. I BELIEVE IN GIVING THE GOOD EXAMPLE, especially if kids are around.

Ocean Pub

Reviewed By Carol Ann M - Calgary, Canada

One of our favorite places in Greece is the Ocean Pub Taverna, wind Surfing, parasailing, camping, and beach. Open late spring till early fall the food is very good and a great selection of rental sports equipment as well as lessons. Modest waves most days, on shore winds, and best Tomato Rose appetizer at Taverna. Good wine too under the great sycamore trees.

Lovely to drive from Mavrovouni to the farm shop during the sunset, breathtaking views on the countryside of Lakonia at her essence and the Taigetos slopes. Everything produced by Karabas is delicious or interesting (jam out of frangosika??) or useful (Cistus multipurpouse cream!). Prices are...MoreDear Alessandra, thank you very much for your lovely words. It s a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed the visit at our organic farm. Hope to see you soon again at Biohof Karababas.
