Voidokilia is rightly considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Apart its extreme natural beauty, the beach is totally unspoiled; no construction is allowed near the beach, being part of a protected wildlife reserve. Of course it’s very popular during the peak season, but fortunately the crowds prefer to gather next to the parking lot. A few hundred meters afar there’s always a secluded strand of white sand. And there’s more!
For years we’ve heard of Polylimnio but for some reason or another we never had the chance to visit this fabulous place. Although we’ve been nearby a few times, it was never the right season to stop by it as it was too cool to swim. But finally the right time arrived and and we reached this beautiful spot of Greece. It’s not exaggerated to say that Polilimnio is a tropical paradise, only thirty kilometers from Kalamata!
Kalamata seems to be a city divided in two parts: the downtown Kalamata with its shops, everyday life, offices, monuments etc that lies away from the sea and the seaside Kalamata that seems to be more relaxed and holiday-oriented with its cafes, restaurants and souvenir-shops. We enjoyed them both and furthermore we discovered the right place for those who want to buy the famous Kalamata olive-oil and olives.
