Voidokilia beach at Messinia prefecture

Voidokilia beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece due to its amazing almost perfect round shape, its gold thin sand and the turquoise sea water! It is located on the west coats of Messinia prefecture and is easily accessed by car.

Access to Voidokilia

There are to ways to reach Voidokilia beach. One is by car after Gialova coastal small village and the other is again after Gialova but with direction to Divari beach. There you may park your car behind the beach bar and walk either through the ancient and medieval castle of Palaiokastro (water and a hat are required during climbing on castle and descending to the beach) or by following the narrow footpath that will lead you to Gialova protected lagoon bank and to the first sand hills as you approach on Voidokilia beach. Total distance is 5.2 kilometers approximately so take care against the heat and the intense Greek sun light if you decide to go on foot.

Gialova lagoon and Palaiokastro Pylos

Gialova lagoon is a very important migration station for birds as they enter or leave Europe on their way to or from Africa. Watch out for snakes as we saw a big one on our way back from Voidokilia beach.
