In the western part of Messinia, we start this hike from the beach of Divari. We follow the path around the lagoon admiring the unique and sensitive natural environment which offers shelter to wild migrating birds. Along the way we cross the beautiful beach of Voidokilia and we do not miss the opportunity for a swim in its turquoise waters.
We carry on uphill to the peninsula of Koryfasio. On our way we get the chance to explore the cave of Nestor, the mythical king of Pylos. At the top of the hill we discover the medieval castle of Paleocastro and we walk over its fortifications. we learn about the intense past history of the castle and how its strategic location made it valuable trophy for every conqueror over time.
At this point we discover the rare geomorphology, the beauty and uniqueness of the landscape. We are between four water complexes enjoying the panoramic view of the Ionian sea, the lagoon of Yalova, the beach of Voidikilia and the bay of Navarino.
After tasting a picnic that will get our batteries charged we take the way back.
