Navarino bay near Pylos is a natural harbor where the island of Sphacteria stands as a natural barrier against the open Ionian Sea. An area integrated to the environmental program "Natura 2000" and the largest wetland in southern Greece offering shelter to endemic and migrating birds. Apart from its ecological significance, the area never ceases to amaze with its incredible beauty, attracting people from all over the world.
Our hike starts from Divari beach near Gialova. We follow the path around the lagoon where we get the opportunity to witness a unique and sensitive ecosystem. Here, migratory birds such as herons, flamingos, and ospreys live which may have the opportunity to observe. We cross the dunes until we reach the famous omega shape beach of Voidokoilia. A refreshing swim into its turquoise waters is an option.
On the way to Paleokastro fort, we stop to explore the cave of mythical king Nestor. At the top of the hill, we explore the medieval castle and learn about the intense history of the region. Here, the beauty and uniqueness of the landscape reveal breathtaking vistas hard to believe it's true. After tasting a healthy picnic, we descend the way back.
