Your guide to Peloponnese holidays
Between the ancient history and the beautiful natural surroundings, there’s a lot to see and do during a holiday in the Peloponnese. Take a trip to the Asklepeion Temple, the amphitheatre and the Fountain House to get a real feel for the heritage of your holiday destination. Head to the beauty spot of Polylimnia to find the waterfall and series of pools where you can swim among nature to your heart’s content. Take a day trip to Kalamata’s bustling marina, where you’ll find markets and cafés, as well as an archaeological museum and lots of local churches to explore. In the evening, Kalamata has live performances in its stunning amphitheatre, and there are bars and restaurants with outdoor terraces to sit in and relax. If you visit the Taygetos Mountains you’ll find gorges to walk alongside, exploring villages as you go. View the shipwrecked MV Dimitrios on Glyfada Beach, swim to the submerged city of Pavlopetri, climb to the ruins of Mystras, and see the wildlife in the wetlands of Gialova, all in a single holiday to the Peloponnese.
The Peloponnese is surrounded by beaches, with clear blue water and soft sands. The small island of Elefonissos has some of the most attractive stretches of seafront, with sheltered coves everywhere, and there are also some lovely beaches at Tolo, Mavrovouni and Pylos too. Tolo is the most tourist friendly beach which is well equipped to deal with the expectations of lots of international visitors, but most beaches are very basic in terms of facilities. Instead, their charm is that they’re largely unspoiled and natural, with a laid back and relaxing atmosphere. You’ll find a few places to eat and drink directly behind or on the beaches, but for more choice there are seaside villages around the coast with added bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. Porto Heli and Ermioni are just two such seafront areas, where you can spend the whole day by the sea with access to everything you might need nearby.
