Just 60 kilometres south of Corinth you will find the town of Ancient Epidavros, and just south of that is Camping Bekas. With 150 pitches (100 for touring, 6-10A electricity available) set amongst the trees, there is shade and a quiet atmosphere. Arranged along a small sand and shingle beach, the site offers opportunities for swimming, sailing and fishing. The Argolid region of the Peloponnese has much to offer the curious tourist. About 12 km. south is the sanctuary of Asclepios. On a hillside lies the theatre, the most famous and best preserved of all the ancient theatres in Greece. Built in the 4th century BC, the limestone theatre can seat 12,000 spectators. Every summer, in July and August, there are various orchestral and theatrical performances, and attendance at one of these has been described as an almost mystical experience.

Alan Rogers Review
Three toilet blocks with a mixture of British and Turkish style WCs, hot showers, some washbasins in cubicles (cold water), facilities for babies and shower rooms for disabled visitors. Laundry with washing machine. Shop. Bar. Restaurant (20/5-20/9). Internet access. TV room. Sand and shingle beach. Apartments to rent.
To avoid driving right through the town of Ancient Epidavros take the southern exit towards the town. Turn inland here down a slip road, then turn under the main road above towards the town. On entering the town turn right towards Gialasi and site is 1.6 km. on the left.
