Elafonisos is the only island in Laconia. It is at the south-east end of Peloponnese. It is only 500 meters away from the other coast, and you can take a ferry boat from the port of Punta to get there. It is a great place for people who love nature thanks to its rare flora and fauna. In the winter, there are about 600 people living on the island. In the summer, when the island is a tourist destination, the number of people living there triples. The main reason for this, is that the island is known for its unique beaches with high sand dunes and rare sea waters.
The twin beaches of Simos and Sarakiniko are some of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean with its clear and crystal waters.
Simos Camping is only 50 meters from the beach and promises to make your vacation one of a kind and an experience you’ll never forget. A tent, a towel, and a hat are all you really need. The sun-baked dunes, which can be up to 10 meters tall give off a feeling of summer fun and carefreeness.
The camping staff makes sure you have a good time by giving you high-quality services. There is a café-restaurant where you can eat and drink coffee, a mini market with everything you need, and bars where you can have a drink and unwind after a long day.
The tent spaces have either a man-made shade or a natural one and are separated from each other by plantation. They meet all the requirements for a well-run campsite and can please even the pickiest campers.
For people who do not like camping or would like to try something different, glamping in a bell tent is an option.
All Bell Tents are 16sqm and have a 4.5m diameter and a maximum height of 3m. Bell tents are in a special part of the camping area, so they have their own neighborhood. Inside the bell tents, there are two double beds, a small fridge, a fan, a coffee table, lighting, and electricity. Lastly, they have a camouflage shade overhead. The linens or towels are not included.
Simos Camping in Elafonisos is the best place to stay in the Peloponnese if you have always wanted to play on a beach with golden-white sand and coral-colored water.

It's one of the most known campings but since the last time i came here ten years ago..it has totally changed.. i didn't like it. It is well organized and there are cleaners all the time.but it's much bigger than old one and full of young people that make noise. We stayed on a camp so we should wait for that..but not all day..even late at night. I was disappointed.

I believe the most beautiful and comfortable beach I have been in Greece. The water is extremely clean and clear, and the beach is sandy. We paid 15 euros for 2 sunbeds and an umbrella but it was worth the stay! Perfect for younger children because the water is very shallow.

Terrible experience. I first visited this camping in 2008, and again in 2018. It was half the size and lovely. Since then they have expanded a whole new area that resembles a parking lot with shades and pebbles where you are supposed to set tent. No new facilities, so this whole new area is supposed to walk to a remote toilet and wait in line at any given point of the day. The toilets and rest of the facilities are filthy. Given the expansion of the number of guests and no new facilities the lines are endless everywhere and every single shared area is overcrowded, which are close to none as they have stuck tents in every possible area. The once amazing beach is overcrowded by vast amount of sunbeds. It is continuously littered by all the take away trash that is being served from the camping coffee bar and the camping does not even make the slightest intent to take responsibility for the garbage they and their guests generate. Never again! It is obvious they decided to be a moneymill without any regards for the impact they have on the surroundings!

Lovely in late June. Toilets and showers are clean, modern and plentiful for the amount of campers at this point in the season. No problems with noise. We would not want to be here in high season because the extended areas for sites look more like abandoned car parks and are far from the facilities. Until more shower & toilet blocks are built there and the appearance improved with planting as per the main parts of the camp it would not be a relaxing place to stay. If you can only go at that time of year then be realistic about your likely experience. Laundry is inadequate and overpriced compared to facilities at other sites. Reception staff are lovely. Appreciated the above honest feedback when they asked about our stay on check out. Talked about plans for increasing facilities in extended areas.

The camp is big and well organized, it has lots of shade, there is also mini market and shared kitchen facilities like grill, tables, which is great. The water is not drinkable (but you can buy plastic bottles in the mini market) and there was no soap or towels at the bathroom, for this reason I'm rating 4 stars. Small things matter We were there in pre-season and it was quite loud. Consider the fact that the camp is popular among young party people.
