The National Road 8 begins east of Elefsina, past Megara (link is external) and Kineta (link is external) where the motorway passes through several tunnels. After about an hour on the National Road and immediately after passing the Isthmus of Corinth, follow the first exit on the right for Epidauros and below the bridge, turn left towards Epidaurus, Spetses, Kranidi and Porto Heli. Passing the city of Kranidi peripherally and reaching the central roundabout of Porto Heli, turn left and follow the coastal road in the direction of Costa. The AKS Porto Heli hotel is at a distance of 500 metres along the coastal road, approximately in the middle of the bay.
