About this location
The Messenia Region
Peloponnese (the south edge of mainland Greece) is the geographical department that displays a large number of historical sights, a rich partition of coasts, a hinterland with beautiful nature, villages with a remarkable arcitecture, developed cities and a high touristic infrastructure.
It boasts the largest and most spectacular concentration of ancient sites, including Mycenae, Epidavros, ancient Messini and Olympia, where the Olympic games were founded. Less known but equally fascinating are the many Byzantine (medieval) cities, churches and fortresses, including the hilltown of Mystras and the sea-rock of Monemvasia. The rugged Mani peninsula, central of the three ‘fingers’, positively bristles with towers and frescoed chapels. Or, if you fancy something more civilised, check out the elegant seaside town of Nafplion, with its narrow alleys, tiled houses, castles and festivals.
Those who prefer natural wonders to man-made will not be disappointed. The southerly mountain range of Taygetos offers breathtaking gorges, spring flowers and well-maintained mulepaths to link them. Some of Greece’s finest beaches can be found on the western finger around Pilos, or along the endless pine-shaded strand that forms the west coast. If someone is looking to visit just one part of Greece with a bit of everything, Peloponnese is certainly the place.
This is a wonderful place for relaxing, painting, reading, walking, on waymarked paths alone or with a leader, and bird watching. Winters are mild with plenty of bright sunny days but chilly nights. Summer is much longer than the tourist companies would suggest with beautiful, clear days right through December and January. Wild flowers cover the landscape from late September onwards and right through until mid-May.
The sea is extremely clean and clear. Snorkelling is worthwhile. Swimming is safe in Kalamata.
Among the many gifts of Kalamata, stands its beach, where one can reach in a few minutes on foot, even from the centre of the city. This long beach with high trees and coloured umbrellas is not only one of the most beautiful places to go for a walk, but also a great choice for swimming and lying under the sun. The presence of hundreds of people every day makes Kalamata beach look like a popular beach in an exotic island.
Traditional bakeries and fish taverns stand together with hotel beaches and non organized sections, exactly as the tourists stay together with local families or young companies with little kids fishing. The beach consists of sandstone and deepens smoothly, while the fact that it is in the centre of the Messinian Gulf guarantees that the water is quiet and warm. The beach of Kalamata is organized, wide, and has been awarded with the Blue Flag (award for clean beaches).

"Go to Kalamata and explore the glorious southern Peloponnes, but stay somewhere else"
This is a tiny studio in a block of residential flats. On arrival, after a long hot day of bus travel, we couldn't find the studio or the owner. Some very helpful locals eventually found a contact number for us, but the owner was not willing to come and let us in as he said he was expecting us at 11am! No arrival time had been arranged. Eventually he agreed to send his son to let us in. First impressions were quite positive as it looked clean. We made the bed (!) and as we were very tired and dusty from the journey, decided to take a shower. This was when we started to notice the 'quirks' - the shower head didn't fit hose; the toilet wouldn't flush properly; there was no hot water connected to the tap in the poorly equipped kitchen; no sink plugs or bowl to wash up in; the balcony table was broken in 2 and the balcony itself overwhelmed with old furniture and a tree. Oh and when we tried to move the dining table, the leg fell off.
Fortunately, Kalamata is an excellent base for exploring the southern Peloponnese with great places to eat, and after the initial shock we started to see the funny side, hired a car and had a splendid time.
