From Athens: Follow the signs for Corinth and exit the Athens-Corinth Motorway immediately after crossing the bridge over the Corinth Canal. Keep in the right-hand lane, pass underneath the Motorway, and then turn left onto the Corinth-Epidaurus B-road in the direction of Epidaurus. Follow the signs for the Epidaurus Ancient Theatre; in about an hour, having passed Nea Epidavros, you reach the crossroads of Palea Epidavros; turn off the B-road and head down to the coast. At the southern end of the beach is a large car park.
From Nafplion: Drive through Lygourio town to reach the crossroads for the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Asklepios. Turn left, and head towards Palea Epidavros/Corinth. Follow the signs for Palea Epidavros as you approach the coast. Once you turn off the B-road, turn left, pass under the B-road you were on, and head towards the beach of Palea Epidavros.
