Paralio Astros Kynourias
Astros Kynourias in Arcadia in Peloponnese is a costal village with a small port with fishing boats and sailing boats arriving there during summer season, long beaches with very clean water, traditional houses and a castle with great view to Argolikos bay and the village itself. It is very close to the famous city of Nafplio (hotels in Nafplion), about 30 minutes by car, and 2.5 hours from the capital city of Athens.
It is a relatively calm summer resort that offers relaxing holidays with some tavernas and cafeterias by the sea, one or two night clubs and very long beaches with clean water to swim and spend most of your day! The castle on the hill is located on the hill under which lie the most traditional part of the village.

Paralio Astros possesses beaches and a harbour which can accommodate small ships. A medieval Frankish fortress commands the heights of a peninsula called “The Island” which juts out to form the harbour. The main square or plateia is at the foot of the castle mount.
Today, Astros’s principal industry is tourism. It is a popular vacation spot for inhabitants of Tripoli and other parts of Greece. As of 2001, the port had 874 permanent inhabitants.
