A chance for quiet vacation

Ermioni is a beautiful small harbor which is located in the prefecture of Argolida. You can reach Ermioni within two hours from Athens both by car and by hydrofoil. Fine, it may take 3 hours by car because the road is a bit winding.
Those who like calm seaside towns, this is their place. There are several taverns and restaurants for all tastes, good food and friendly people who make you feel like home. Beaches are quiet and only two of them are in a walking distance from Ermioni. One in the front side of the village and the other on the back side. It's better if you go early in the morning because it gets really busy a few hours later but if you wish to stay until late at night you will find some bars and cafeterias around the beach. Above the port, there was our favourite cafeteria, in an old windmill with tables in the yard and great view to the sea.
It is advisable to rent a bike or car and travel around Ermioni where you have many cultural places and villages to see. We suggest you go to Porto Heli for a drink at night in the cosmopolitan port and Ancient Epidaurus, only an hour away from Ermioni. Instead you can pass to Hydra by flying dolphin or Spetses. They are both small islands which can become crowded in high season just because there are very close to Athens.
