In the bay of Navarino

Pylos – the largest town in Western Messenia

The small town of Pylos is the economic center of West Messenia and used to be called Navarino. The bay on which the town is located is still named after the historical name. The bay of Navarino became famous in 1827 due to a naval battle with sailing ships, in which the English, French and Russian allies defeated the Turkish occupiers, helping the region to gain independence from the Ottoman Empire. In Pylos, you can visit Neo Kastro, an exceptionally well-preserved 16th century fortress that played a significant role in the naval battle. From here you have a breathtaking view of the bay. North of Pylos, archaeology enthusiasts can visit the excavation site of the extensive palace of Nestor from the Mycenaean period.

Voidokilia – one of the most famous bays in Greece

At the other end of Navarino Bay there is another, older fortress – Paleo Kastro. From here you can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the green landscape of Messenia, Navarino Bay and the neighboring Oxbelly Bay – Voidokilia. This unique bay is a world famous photo motif, as it forms an almost geometrically perfect semicircle. There is only a small opening to the sea, framed by two rocks. If you want to swim here, you have to take a long walk. But it is worth it! Fine sand and countless shells will tempt you to linger on this unique beach. Above the beach you can see the opening of the Nestor Cave, which was already inhabited in the Neolithic Age. Above it towers the said picturesque ruined castle of Paleo Kastro.

Gialova – sandy beaches and lagoon with flamingos and chameleons.

Between the bay of Navarino and Voidokilia is the lagoon of Gialova with more than 250 species of birds, including flamingos. This is also the only place, not only in Messinia or Greece, but in all of Europe, where the African chameleon lives. The terrain of the place rises from the sea. On the hills there is a selection of vacation homes, some with luxurious furnishings. In the evening, drink a glass of regional wine in the pool at the villas of Gialova Hills 6 and enjoy the sunset over the sparkling waters of the bay.

Methoni – a typical Greek village in Messinia

This picturesque village is known for its imposing, well-preserved fortress complex that extends into the sea. It was built in the 13th century by the Venetians. In the hinterland Methoni is a typical Greek village with small houses and kafenions. Of course, there are many vacation accommodations and inviting sandy beaches here as well.

Finikounda – the most family-friendly beach

The beach in Finikounda at the southern tip of West Messinia is popular with families with children, as it slopes particularly gently into the sea. Here you can go diving, surfing, kayaking and catamaran sailing, among other activities. In order to discover all the sights of West Messenia, the village of Finikounda is a perfect starting point.
