Saranti Beach

On the upper side of the Corinthian Sea, there is a beach that doesn’t remind of anything of mainland Greece. It’s like you’ve taken a boat and been on an exotic island. Saranti beach is located where Viotia ends in the sea and is a pebbled beach with crystal clear and calm waters. The advance is that it is just an hour and a half away from Athens. The area also has cheap accommodation if you want to spend the night there.
