Tolo (Tolon) is in the county
of Argolida on the Peloponnese peninsula, Southern Greece,
one of the prettiest parts of Greece which is steeped in ancient history
and covered with citrus trees.
The village itself, some years ago was
a sleepy fishing village, a profession from which many families in the
village still live. The harbour is picturesque with its many fishing
boats and the Romvi island in the background - daily cruises to the
islands of Hydra, Spetses, Poros and to the mainland Monemvasia leave on
a daily basis during the summer months.
Tolo stretches from the harbour the
length of the beach along one main road and the island of Koronis
decorates the middle of the bay. A variety of watersports are available
on the beach of Tolo such as pedalo rental, waterskiing,
windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and scuba diving. It is also possible to
rent motor boats by the hour or by the day. Swimming in Tolo is a
pleasure and ideal for families, the water is clear, clean, warm and
Tolo is a well organised resort
catering to a visitors every need with all manner of shops, cafe/bars,
restaurants and tavernas, post office, dry cleaners hairdressers etc.
Tolo is a great base from which to
visit and explore the archaeological sites of the immediate area in the
Argolida and wider region of the Peloponnese due to its central
position, for this reason it is an almost year-round resort.
