Karathona Bay is a large bay just south of Naplion. The ruins of a half built holiday village will be seen but don´t intrude on the climbing, which is surprisingly good and with the recent re-bolting of the older routes this is a worthwhile venue with routes for everyman. Nice easy walk, good bathing, beach bar etc, typical "Greece by the sea" climbing with the routes being just out of tourist range. Good anchorage for sailing climbers.
