Marinella, nearby Selinon, is a small fishing village blessed by the gaze of the ancient gods. Calm and quiet for most of the year, it’s a very relaxing place for a seaside holiday, thanks to its wonderful sandy beaches. Here it is possible to experience something unique, bathing in the Mediterranean Sea while the sun sets behind the ancient temple ruins.
