We had found a wonderful beach South of Nafplio, where we spent a couple of days not only hiking but also visiting a hotel. Actually we were parking directly in front of it, just that it was closed, and that already for years. A tour through the hotel took us past the pool and reception and up many floors until we reached the rooftop with a magnificent view.
Once a luxurious hotel with pool, tennis courts, open air theatre, bungalows and much more, it is now a ruin, abandoned and vandalised. The owner once expected to make good money with nudists as guests, until religious moralists extorted the complete ban of nudism in Greece in 1980. It seems the hotel continued for “clothed” guests until it had to close in 1996.
After exploring this site we will leave this very nice beach to look for new adventures. More on our next post!
