Paralio Astros lies on the East of the Peloponnese peninsula covering the coastal region of the Arcadian prefecture on the Argolicos bay. It’s the main summer resort of municipality of North Kynouria.
It’s 4 km. to (Mesogion) Astros, 49 km. to Tripolis and 170 km. to Athens, Greece.
The town is gifted with a 10 km. coastal line of one of the most beautiful and clearest beaches in Greece.
The capacity of hotels, room renting services and other facilities is enough to satisfy the visitors.
There is a lovely hill next to the port which looks like a star ( Astros ) where the town owes its name. On top of this hill, there is the castle of the Zafiropoulos family accessible to daily visits by tourists. The view from the top of the hill is breathtaking!!!
