Aghio Georgios – Viglafia
Quiet villages just a stone’s thrown from magical Elafonisos. Aghios Georgios (8 km from Neapoli) is particularly interesting as it is the site of most of the Mycenaen tombs found in the Vies area. North of the village is believed to be the site of the ancient city of Aphrodisas, built by Aeneas. The road to the long sandy beach of Manganos begins in the middle of the village.
Aghi Apostoli lies 6 km from Neapoli. Turn left at the intersection to Aghios Georgios (3 km). A few kilometres past Aghios Georgios is Viglafia, close to the endless sandy beach of Pounta, with its turquoise qaters and sand dunes. Viglafia is a farming settlement, a base for a full-day excursion around the Strongyli lagoon and the Pikri wetland. Just a few metres off the coast are the ruins of the ancient sunken city of Pavlopetri.
