Voidokilia is one of the most beautiful and unique beaches we ever saw (and we’ve visited several Caribbean islands, The Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and other countries famous for their beaches).

The perfect horseshoe shape is one of Mother Nature’s wonders. The sand is fine and golden. The water is turquoise - and low close to the beach (kids), deep further out and near the cliffs (adults and snorkelers).

Before you go it’s worth noting…

You have to bring your own umbrella, towels, water and food
You must be prepared to drive on narrow roads for about 20 minutes
You should walk the whole beach from one end to the other to find YOUR favorite spot

Enjoy world class Voidokilia!!

This circular hike takes you to the Gialova Lagoon, round Voidokilia beach, up to the old castle, Paleokastro down via a precarious climb, Nestor's Cave and back along the beach.

Would recommend sturdy shoes, hat, sun-screen or cover up - we did meet people in flip flops, but no idea how they managed it!

We found the hike in Bradt's 'Greece:The Peloponnese', called 'Around the Cow's Belly' and the instructions were spot on...so if you're visiting the area and looking for a guide, would recommend.

It took us 2.5 hours and as it was July was rather hot...but with plenty of water it was fine.

A shallow lagoon, turquoise sea and fine white sand. Great views of the rocks and the old fortress towering over the beach. The fantastic views from the dunes and rocks above the beach. The only problem is the very narrow access road (and the last 400 meters on a sandy road), where passing the other car is quite a challenge.

This is a famous beach with many impressive photographs circulating in the internet. We discovered it lately and we have enjoyed it multiple times.

A couple of things to know though:
1. The beach is protected (Natura). This means this is NOT an organized beach. The sun is hot, so you need to bring your own umbrella, tent, etc.
2. There are nearby cafeterias if you want a beverage in driving distance.
3. The waters are shallow for the most part, which makes it safe for small kids, but some adults may not find it so enjoyable.

This was our last stop and the high point of our 50 mile circuit south from the Kyparissia Beach Hotel(including Fairytale Castle and Filiatra’s Eiffel Tower). This is a ½ mile world class beach in substance and beauty with a bounty of pure sand, crystal clear water and enclosed with bold yellow cliffs. In addition, a short but steep climb accesses the fenced archaeological site that contains the vaulted Tomb of Thrasimede dating to the Mycenaean Era (1680-1060 B.C), while on the far side, a long steep climb accesses Nestor’s Cave and a 13th-century Frankish fortress ruins.
We visited with the morning sun, parking along the sandy lane, avoiding the deep sandy overflow lot where only 4WD’s should go.

Voidokilia is easily accessible, very close to road and parking is located directly on the beach.
It is a short coastline with crystal turquoise water and pure golden fine sand, you don't need special shoes. Voidokilia is suitable for different categories of people, lonely travellers, relaxation getaway lovers etc. It can be very crowded place during the season.

Last but not least, don't miss the sunset!!

You’ve seen the photos, it’s gorgeous. But I’m writing this review as a warning for others: there is no ‘official’ car park, security etc and although it was relatively busy, we unfortunately had our hire car broken into (rear windscreen smashed in). We aren’t naiive or careless about these things - there were no valuables and there was nothing on show; the parcel shelf was covering the few bags of beach clothes we had in the boot, so the thief went to the trouble of smashing the window with no idea that they’d even get anything. We also saw another car a few metres up from ours also had their window smashed.

Bay with calm waters. The beach has a horseshoe shape with the sea entering through the rocks. It is a beautiful landscape for taking pictures. As a beach it is nothing special. Coarse sand and a little dark water. by the highly photogenic landscape

This is a quite beautiful, unusually shaped beach found not far from Pylos and Gialova. Well worth a visit, but be aware that you are likely to need a car due to the length of the small winding roads leading there. Also, please be aware that there are absolutely no facilities at the beach - no toilets, bars etc.

The beach is shaped like a horse shoe and while quite large I could see that it would get very busy. I visited on a Sunday in early October and even then people were dotted quite closely around the whole bag, so I'd be concerned how busy it got in peak season. Lovely shallow water and views to die for.
