Beautiful clear water, but with colored stones. Organized beach with a canteen.
The Byzantine fortress town of Monemvasia, known as the “stone ship” is situated on the southeastern coast of Laconia, ready to travel the visitors on a historic journey back to time. Castles, walls, old mansions, narrow lanes, churches, imperial marble thrones and Byzantine icons give the impression of a town untouched by the time.
On the way to the castle of Monemvasia is the Kourkoulas, a sheltered harbor which usually resembles a swimming pool and is protected by 3 points, ideal for swimming. With the help of small stairs, immediately immerse in cool and clear water next to you having the imposing rock towers.
Inside the castle, at the end of the Lower Town and then the walls follow the signs to the castle, located in Portello. The output is a Portelo down the walls that leads to a narrow strip of rock, but also a unique experience of swimming and literally in the shadow of the castle of Monemvasia.
