Nice taverna, little church, only easily accessible by sea, or a winding road , by car.
Not much to detain the visitor, once is probably enough, but to be fair it's quiet and safe bathing.

Calm, clear water. Seems like more Greeks visit here rather than foreigners. Numerous places have chairs/umbrellas for rent. Cash only!

If it was in another place I would rate it average because the sand is not really fine or nice but there are a lot of pebbly beaches in Greece (on the Peloponnese) that don't have all the advantages of this one.
It is near the city, it has shade, also some long chairs - nobody claimed any money for it. The first time someone came to ask if we wanted drinks, we declined and they didn't insist. They came an hour later and we took drinks.
There was all the tubes of the 80s which is refreshing sometimes (instead of techno/rap) and a shower to rinse. So overall a good experience.

Karathonas Beach is the best beach in the Nafplio area. Go before 11.00 in weekends if you want a chair and an umbrella. Be aware that a number of the beach bar´s do not have a toilet - look for the ones that have as otherwise you have a long walk if you need

Lovely long beach where you will find a spot away from the crowds. There are great beach bars for a cold beer.
