The mountain range has a north-south extension of about 5 km and a west-east extension of 15 to 20 km. The Gerania mountain range stretches right up to the Gulf of Corinth , it is somewhat separated from the Saronic Gulf , with the exception of the part called Kakia Skala , which comes right up to the Saronic Gulf. East of the Gerania mountain range is the city of Megara , southwest of the city of Corinth . The Gerania mountain range is spread over the areas of the municipalities of Megara and Loutraki-Perachora-Agii Theodori .
