Beach without sunshine: The Cave of the Seals

Imagine summer. Imagine a nice beach in a southern country, like Greece. Way too hot! How about a beach in a cave, so that you don't have to get sun cream out? This, and so much more you can get in the Cave of the Seals, north of Corinth and Loutraki and on the Perachora peninsula. An hour from Athens.

The most remarkable feature, of course, is the stone arch above the waves.

Unfortunately, when I was here in mid-February, it was stormy winds, and obviously the water was also cold. The waves were way too big for me to safely attempt to cross to the cave side.

The coordinates for this place are N 38.07414 E 22.98441.

Depending on how sporty you feel about driving off-roady roads, you can park either here (easier) or here (closer, more remote, difficult road).

Some more information about the Cave of the Seals can be found here and here.

The descent to the beach and cave is steep and mildly challenging. A rope is provided:
