Because of the recent super (and very full) moon, Nafplio residents discovered a new beach in front of Nea Kios village. The full moon caused a low tide, moving the water dozens of meters back.
This unusual low tide was particularly impressive because of its wide extent. The phenomenon is repeated twice a day due to the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun on Earth, as well as the rotation of the celestial bodies.
