The port of Plytra is an ideal anchoring location for cruisers of every kind and it is only two kilometers from the settlement. It used to be a port stop for the ferry route Piraeus- Gytheio- Kalamata- Patra- Corfu. The area has a protected jetty and chutes for small boats as well as a shelter for touristic cruisers. Fuel is provided from local gas stations. Furthermore, it is considered to be a popular seaside resort and it has a customs and harbor officer, touristic lodgings, bars, fish taverns and restaurants. Across Plytra, lays the beautiful settlement Karavostasi, with amazing, crystal clear, shallow waters, suitable for swimming and scuba diving for exploring the regional shipwrecks. In Plytra you can also swim directly from the cruiser without having to moor, and a little further away is the cosmopolitan beach of Pachia Ammos, rewarded with “The Blue Flag of Europe”. At the end of the settlement is the ancient sunken city, which is really impressive and you’ll need only a mask to observe it. Other great beaches for swimming are Ammoulis’ beach and the beach at Kokkines. At Daimonias’ beach there are also chutes for small boats.
