What better to be able to combine on your holiday a traditional, picturesque Greek village together with the wonders of the Peloponnese and close proximity to Nafplion. Your stay at Vivari can offer you all of these things and more. Visit the small church of Saint Spyridon where many weddings are held and the chapel of Saint Nikolaos which is found at the entrance to the port and next to the lighthouse. The village itself has a quiet, peaceful atmosphere and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy one's holiday in Greece. It offers a number of excellent tavernas, each having a panoramic view of the bay.
Vivari is located on the South East cost of the Argolida county, close to the historic town of Nafplion and is favoured by tourists and locals for its beauty and unspoilt coastline.
The Bay of Vivari is a large, natural harbour which is protected from winds and is also popular with yachts and other vessels for overnight mooring. The port of Vivari was used as a naval station by the Venetians during their occupation of the area. Vivari is a magical village with a unique charm, scenery, and crystal clear sea magnetises visitors from all over the world both by road and sea. Everyday needs such as bakers, butchers, supermarkets, post office etc. are catered for by the nearby town of Drepano (just 1.5 kms). All in all Vivari has a great deal to offer to the tourist plus it is in an excellent location from which to visit all the archaeological sites and places of interest of the Peloponnese on a day trip basis.
Specialising in fresh fish, the local tavenas are popular with locals and visitors from the area and tourists.
Many yachts and small motor boats moor at Vivari finding its natural harbour sheltered and calm with all amenities.
A long, sandy beach, Kondyli (Agios Nikolaos) is close to Vivari and offers watersports, bars and a great atmosphere.
