Great place to go, a small gem of Peloponissos. I enjoyed swimming in these crystal waters so much! If you are around, don't miss it. It worths more than any beach

The access path is steep and not shaded, no doubt treacherous when wet and slippery. Then you have to crawl around under brush and over rocks to even find an access to a view. In July, we found a dried up, small stream, though you...More

The Polylimnio Waterfalls, in Polylimnio Gorge, offer something different from Messenia's usual beaches. While walking inside the Gorge, we were immersed in a scene of lush greenery, gushing cascades and green lakes, filled with fresh-water crabs, perfect for a relaxing dip.To wear sturdy shoes, in...More

This place is breath-taking! The waterfall and lake are so picturesque. The water is very cold as you'd expect but it's so refreshing swimming in this turquoise lake. It a 20-min walk from the parking and I would recommend wearing trainers instead of flip flops.

Hi, I believe there is public transport but we got a taxi from our hotel, the taxi man was brilliant and he waited for us to come back to him and dropped us back to the hotel. Thanks
