The area is located on the eastern side of the Corinthian Gulf, at the foot of the mountains of Gerania. Its beaches occupy several kilometers with alternating landscapes, with sandy and rocky beaches and beaches only accessible by boat.
The settlement has been constantly developing since the 70s and today thousands of Attica residents retain their permanent or holiday home there, while in the summer months Alepochori gathers many thousands of holidaymakers.
During antiquity, it consisted of two areas, Aigousouss (now Duralakos) and Pagais or Pigai (now Alepochori), which were the liveliness of the ancient Megaridos in the Corinthian Gulf. The Pagas experienced great growth in the Classical and Hellenistic years due to their position, since the Athenians used this port as a base against the Peloponnese (461 BC).
At the 8 km long beach of Alepochori, you will come across landscapes of unique beauty, sometimes sandy and sometimes pebbly, where you can enjoy your swim. The choices that are available throughout the trip will satisfy every visitor, since they can swim in quiet beaches, elf, romantic, crowded or isolated , and just below the cafes / bars where they can listen to music, drinking a refreshing drink. If you head to Mavrolimni you will find beaches isolated and “raw” under the shade of pine trees that reach the beach and overlooking the Corinthian islets.
Those who stay on the beach until afternoon will be enchanted by the color palette of the sunset as the sun transforms the blue waters into purple and sets behind the mysterious Alkyon Islands.
