Peloponnese: Classical Greece (although it was not an island but a peninsula until the Corinth Canal was completed in 1893). The Peloponnese is a place of phenomenal and varied beauty with high snow-capped mountains, orchards and river valleys as well as fine beaches. This peninsula is full of history and the places are close to each other. It was here that a large part of ancient history began and in the Iliad more than 20 places from the Peloponnese are mentioned. Just 10 minutes drive and about 15 km southeast of Kalamata is Avia Messinia with its barren, beautiful nature with fantastic panoramic views of the blue and turquoise crystal clear waters of Messinia Bay. The name comes from the mythological king of Messenia Kresphontis, who named the area after Hercules' daughter Avia.
In the area there are small communities Avia, Akrogiali and Megali Mantineia and the view from the western foot part of the Taygetos massif gives a fantastic view of the bay and Kalamata. As the area is hilly and the beaches are close to the mountains, you will not find here any classic sandy beaches as in other areas. Here it is clearly rockier beaches and bays that are preferred by the Greeks themselves. The entire coastline all the way down to Mani is very sailing-friendly and it is also possible to quickly sail over to the western side of the Gulf of Messina or around to the southeastern parts of the Peloponnese.
