Voidokilia Messinias

Swimming in Voidokilia and walking on the fine white sand
Voidokilia is a legendary beach and one of the loveliest in the Mediterranean, with white sand and cool blue waters. It stands out on any map for its nearly perfect arch shape.

Voidokilia offers no amenities such as parasols and a beach bar. You reach the beach via a dirt road from Petrochori or a footpath from Divari through the Gialova Lagoon. The beach has had the same name since Homeric times and in his epic poems, the ancient chronicler refers to it as Voufrada (with “vouf” being the ancient word for “vodi,” which means ox in Greek; thus Voidokilia means ox belly and the beach is named such because of its rounded shape). This may well be the beach where Telemachus landed his ship when returning from Ithaca in search of information regarding the fate of Odysseus from the king of Pylos, Nestor.

After a magical swim, take the small path right by the beach up to the top of the northern hill of Voidokilia. There is a vaulted tomb on the hill, which Pausanias attributes to Thrasymedes, the son of Nestor. It is built on the ruins of an Early Helladic structure and there are more burial sites in the area. The site was excavated in the 1950s by Spyros Marinatos, and while it is enclosed behind a fence, you can still catch a glimpse of the tomb from afar. If you walk to the other side of the enclosure, you will be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of Voidokilia from above.

GETTING THERE

Voidokilia Beach can be reached by road from Pylos, via Gialova and Petrochori. It is about 8 km from Pylos. Pylos is 50 km from Kalamata.

SLEEPING & EATING

Very near Voidokilia, the area of Romanos has a 5-star hotel complex with a plethora of services and amenities. In Pylos you will find several 3-star hotels and rooms-to-let, as well as many decent traditional and fish tavernas. Gialova and Petrochori, which are nearby, have plenty of hotels, guest houses and rooms for all tastes. There are also some very good seafood tavernas on the coast of Gialova.

Milos island

HYDRA is a small island, a destination really close to Athens, for those...

who want to enjoy one day cruise or a short gateway during a stay in downtown Athens. Hydra is also well known as a yachting destination.

Hydra, has a view of the Argosaronic gulf, it is also known as one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares and above all the banning of cars and the use of around 500 donkeys as means of public transportation, explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time.

The Hydriots contributed significantly to the 1821 War of Independence as their powerful fleet participated in crucial sea battles. It is rather impressive the fact that such a tiny island is the birthplace of five Greek Prime Ministers!

Lavish stone mansions owned by important families (Voulgaris, Kountouriotis, Tombazis, Kriezis, Bountouris etc), and built by Italian artisans reveal the wealth that experienced the island in the past. Today most of these mansions house the island’s museums. 300 churches and 6 monasteries spread around the island as well as the cannons and the statues of the Independence War heroes still standing at the balconies of the islands create a romantic mosaic.

It is worthy to mention that Hydra became famous all over the world thanks to the film “Boy on a Dolphin”, shot on the island in 1957 with Sophia Loren leading the starring role.
