    Dear Readers
    recently I visited the town of Loutraki, a sea resort close to Athens – at about 1 hour with the car.

    Some info about  Loutraki   – ελλ. Λουτράκι

    The small village of Loutraki is very close to Corinth and it faces the huge Gulf of Corinth – actually in order to get there you need to go along the narrow Canal of Corinth.

    The village is famous for the Casino and also for the Natural Thermal Waters.


    Let’s go to my trip

    One very sunny and warm Sunday we decided to go and visit the close sea resort of  Loutraki. Usually for that occasions I prefer the beautiful city of Nafplio but since we had been there recently many times, we decided to cross  the Corinth Isthmus and visit the nice town of Loutraki, famous for its SPA with Natural Spring Waters and for the Casino.

    The town develops all along the huge Gulf of Corinth. There are plenty of bars and tavernas all along the nice walk close to the beach.  The beach is really long – I think more than 3 kms – and it’s with lot of small pebbles.

    The beach should be organized in Summer and there are plenty of showers all along the beach.

    We had a walk there, we enjoyed the nice weather and the sun and of course our Frappe’ at the end.

    Honestly I found Loutraki a little bit  abandoned – buildings need to be renovated and it was quite sad …. maybe because we went there in low season and it may be much better in Summer. For sure this is not as beautiful as Nafplio – still it is a nice place for having a walk and enjoy nice food or good coffee at just 1 hour from Athens.

    I was told that there beautiful beaches close by – that I shall visit in the next future


    Ciao !
