Nice hotels are great but nothing is greater than nature, being outdoors and exploring. September in south Greece is still summer and it guarantees great water temperature and sunny skies. If you ever get to be around Monemvasia then there are two beaches you should definitely visit.
E L A F O N I S O S, Simos Beach
One of Greece’s best kept secrets. Azure waters, pearly white beaches and no buildings as far as the eye can see. What a way to relax and forget the outside world. A little piece of paradise. Elafonisos is a very small island 10 minutes ferry boat ride from the port of Pounta. Perfect time to visit early, middle September, June and first two weeks of July. August is a no go for me since it can take forever to reach this small island due to its popularity.
P L Y T R A Beach
Even though Simos beach is the best beach of the area if you want to enjoy crystal clear waters in a small beach just “around the corner” of Monemvasia, Plytra is the choice for you. Only a short ride to it, Plytra is perfect if you love shallow waters and family atmosphere.
Wherever you end up going remember it is not only about the destination, enjoy your ride there.
