We conclude our trip in Peloponnese with a visit to Koroni. This is not only our last stopover but also our last post about Greece! For the next few months (or even years!) we will venture around Europe. Before reaching Koroni we pass by a couple of beaches that are worth a stop or a stay-over: the first is close to Methoni and the other is the immense beach of Finikounda, one of Peloponnese’s most famous.
We continue on our “castle route” of southern Peloponnese arriving at Methoni and its beautiful maritime fort. The small country is not really suitable for campervans, especially the large ones, but a stop is a must and with a little patience you can find a decent spot to park. If you like exploring and hiking, you should not miss an early Christian cemetery that we ‘found’ on a hill just outside the town. It also could be a good starting point for a hike.
After Voidokilia we move to Pylos, known also as Navarino; its scenic bay was the setting of the famous battle of the same name. Besides being the main town of the area, Pylos also boasts an impressive castle, in excellent condition, but for some strange reason is largely ignored by visitors.
