    The beach at Navpaktos.
    1 more image

    There is a fairly nice beach at Navpaktos that is lined by a lot of cafes and restaurants.
    The sand might not be the finest but i liked it because it was well kept and had was big enough to move around cofortably unlike many other beaches in that region.
    The beach runs for quite a deistance outside town so you should also be able to find a quiet spot if that is what you are after.

    Navpactos - Historical centre
    1 more image

    Residential homes align with the Gulf of Corinth over a length of about 3 km and a width of about 1km. The port divides the beachfront in two parts. The Western part is called Psani, while the Eastern part Gribovo. Both beachfronts provide the backdrop for a nice promenade while a wide range of restaurants and cafes can also be found.

    The historical centre which is immured, it appears an interesting, traditional town-planned set that in combination with the successive battlements of the Venetian fort compose an historic environment.

    Navpaktos - Venetian fort
    2 more images

    The port with the Venetian fort and the Venetian castle situated at the hill provide the main attraction for the town.

    The port also includes monuments commemorating the Battle of Lepanto of which a statue of the famous writer Miguel de Cervantes can be found.
    A small water park just passed the western portion of the beach near Psani

    Navpaktos is also home to a local museum and also offers visitors a look back to its recent and ancient past with historic sites also marked off within the town providing insight to its Classical era.

    The old walls of the Citadel

    Two main focus of activitiy: the old Monastiraki area, with lots of bar along the beach (not so beautiful in itself, if compared to what Greec may offer) and the area around the old Port, with lots of trendy restaurants and pubs... maybe a bit too many.

    The Fortress

    The Fortress of Nafpaktos

    This fortress is dominating the town of Nafpaktos. It is here that the Battle of Lepanto occur in 1571.

    It's very difficult to park your car so the best way maybe to go by foot. I did take my picture by the glass of the car.

    The European loves their harbor & I find lots of charming ones just by looking at photos posted by members. Distinctly I remembered some quaint ones in Croatia, Spain & Greece. It's just an observation... probably a European culture. Did anyone notice this?

    Defences

    Men only need defences against themselves...

    Let me tell you a joke. It was said when men are bored, they waged war. When women are bored, they shop! Now, what's the morale of this joke? If a woman is the president of the country, no recession! Now, there's some truth to this, you know. We are not talking about recession in my country any more, lol...

    There are 2 beaches between the port of Nafpaktos.The first called Psani and the second Gribovo.Both of them, at summer time are closed for vehicles so they are good for walking across the sea.In these places you can find restaurants, cafes and hotels..

    The old Venetian castle

    Above the city, there still remain the old walls of the Venetian castle. Good to climb the steep path in the late afternoon, where the light is better and the temperature not so hot.

    Overlooking the sea, with the mountain backdrop... in Hong Kong, this piece of land is a treasure (according to Feng Shui, ie. geomancy). I wonder what's it like in Greece?
