Starting from the beach of Divari, our Hiking Navarino Bay tour takes us to a path around the lagoon enabling us to observe its ecosystem and receive knowledge and information about this unique and sensitive natural environment. The area being integrated into the environmental program Natura 2000 is the largest wetland in southern Greece and offers shelter to wild migrating birds.
Along the way we cross the beautiful beach of Voidokilia and its turqouise waters, providing us a unique opportunity for a swim! We continue uphill to the peninsula of Koryfasio. En route we explore the cave of Nestor, the mythical king of Pylos. At the top of the hill we discover the medieval castle of Paleocastro, walk over its fortifications and learn about its strategic location, a valuable trophy for every conqueror over time. At this point we discover also the rare geomorphology, the beauty and uniqueness of the landscape.
Suddenly we find ourselves between four water complexes enjoying the panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, the lagoon of Yalova, the beach of Voidokilia and the bay of Navarino. After tasting a delicious picnic we take the way back, finishing our Navarino Bay hiking day!
