The picturesque fishing town of Ermioni, just 55 km from Candia, has become an important tourist destination, offering modern amenities while maintaining its traditional character and natural beauty. Ermioni is a beautiful coastal town, built amphitheatrically, on both sides of a narrow strip of land, on the eastern “finger” of the Peloponnese. It combines the serenity of the island atmosphere with the organization and infrastructure of a city and is an ideal destination for a close escape from the city.
At the southeastern tip of the Peloponnese lies the beautiful town of Argolida, Kranidi. It is located just 53 km from Kadia. Kranidi communicates with Piraeus port by sea and the islands of the Argosaronic Sea, through the ports of Ermioni and Porto Heli. The town is built amphitheatrically on the hills of Agia Anna and Vardounia. On the west and east side, the town has low vegetation and is stony, while on the southeast side there is a wonderful pine forest, Korakia. North of Kranidi lies the mountain of Prophet Elias and northwest is the Valley with the traditional homonymous village and prehistoric cave Franghi just 6 km away.
Just 43km outside of Kandia, lies the village of Didima.
