Traveling to Messinia, Kalamata and Pylos with kids is a journey to a mythical world. In this region, you will have the opportunity to live family experiences in nature, swim next to the old castles of Navarino, Methoni and Koroni, hike in unique ecosystems, such as the Gialova lagoon, and live the experience as a local in the Messenian olive groves that give birth to the world-renown Kalamata olive oil. You will be able to attend family-friendly guided tours in the region’s archeological sites and the byzantine castles of Mystras; to visit Kalamata and Messenian Mani; to sail to Greece’s utmost southwest boundary, the Messinian islands, that are full of stories of pirates and shipwrecks.

Enjoy the view of the Ionian Sea from golden beaches, next to white sea-lilies growing in the sand; let Homer’s epic poems take you back to Ancient Pylos, the Kingdom of Nestor, and watch the sun that scorches everything in the horizon and paints the endless olive grove in silver until it sets in the deepest blue Mediterranean Sea.
