Corinth Canal - Mediterranean sea

The Corinth Canal is a canal connecting the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from the Greek mainland and therefore effectively making the former an island.

The canal is 6.3 km in length and was built between 1881 and 1883.

The isthmus of Corinth is the narrow land bridge which connects the Peloponnese peninsula with the mainland of Greece (Attiki), near the city of Corinth.

Gulf of Corinth Sea beach and the driveway is just along the beach. The colourful nature of the sea, cold currents are something to mention, which is reflected in delighted face of Kabita.
