I have grow up here since 1985 and I loved this place. Maybe the reason is that I love the sea . This is not island but it seems to you like island.
On the same hill you can distinguish the sections of the wall of classical ages. From the castle, the view from Argolicos gulf is fabulous. The "Island" is the most graphical section of Paralio Astros with the traditional stone-made houses. At the edge of the dock there is a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre. The port has the ability to keep many sailing boats every summer
There is a continuous road connection from Paralio Astros to Athens- which is capital of Greece- with buses (duration 2 hours). Also the distance from Historical Nafplion is 30 km.
