Description

After the peak up we drive for the VOIDOKILIA Beach, Bay, Curve or Cove is not only one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, but maybe also in the Mediterranean Sea. The sheltered bay is referred to in Homer's Odyssey and archaeologists believe it was used by King Nestor as a port in ancient times. Situated at 12 km from the city of Pylos (in the north of the Navarino bay), you reach from the village of Petrochori. Voidokilia is hidden behind sand dunes, which seem to be protecting its secret of magic beauty. The beach of outstanding beauty lies beneath the Old Frankish castle (Paliokastro) and the cave of King Nestor, the ancient King of Pylos, who according to legend, used this cave as a haven for his cattle. The old castle/fortress of Paliokastro was built by the Franks around 1278 / 13th (it seems position built on the ruins of a ancient Acropolis from the Pylos-Koryphasion city of Classical period), is situated the north side of Navarino bay, on the top of the hill. Taking the path up from Voidokilia to the Old Navarino castle you will enjoy the wonderful panorama that unfolds in front of you: the Divari lagoon of Gialova, Navarino Bay and the Peloponnesian hills covered with olive trees. From Voidokilia beach you can pass onto the lagoon of Gialova through a natural path to observe the lagoon’s bird life, and the fascinating world of one of Europe’s most important wetlands. After that we can have some leisure time at Gialova seaside village, located in the middle of Navarino bay, viewing Pylos town and Sfaktiria islet. You will find here some beautiful hotels, rooms to let, campsites, restaurants, cafes, bars, hospitable people and the amazing long organized beach of Gialova.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out
    better?

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue
    is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
