Pylos - Costa Navarino
The modern city of Pylos is definitely one of the most attractive coast in Greece. Someone arriving at Pylos, has the impression that he is somewhere on an island.
The little town is built amphitheatrically between and on-top of two hills, on the southern side of the Navarino bay; Sphacteria Island (a huge rocky barrier 4.6 km long and rising to a height of 135 m.) protects the bay.
The area of Pylos is God’s blessed. The surroundings are not only of great historical and archaeological interest, but also a little piece of paradise that offers nature.
Some examples: the olive groves who cover the landscape; the most beautiful beaches with fine sand of Voidokoilia, Romanos and Gialova; the Divari lagoon of Gialova which host a rich and varied flora and fauna (many migatory bird species, African chameleons) preserved through protection program “Natura 2000
For visitors and travelers it’s a chance to spend the holidays cultural as “sports” and thus enjoy the many excursions and hiking.
Pylos, historically also known under its Italian name Navarino, is a town and a former municipality in Messenia, Peloponnese, Greece.
