Step back in time 

You’ve got some of the country’s most interesting ancient sites right on your doorstep, so it’d be rude not to check them out! From fortresses to castles and acropolises, if history’s your bag, then Methoni will tick all the boxes. Most along the coast are backed by the tranquil turquoise water of the Med, so the views are outstanding too!

Day trips

You could head north along the coast for a fun day out in Pilos or travel inland to Kalamata for a taste of city life. Fancy a spot of island-hopping? Set sail from Methoni to check out the magical mini islands of Schiza and Sapientza. The beaches are bright white and the water glows in all kinds of colours.
