On the Malea Peninsula, human presence left its mark for thousands of years. The Neapolis Vaion Museum’s exhibition includes sculptures, inscriptions, tombstones, vases. Its core was the Neapolis Archaeological Collection, but findings from other areas of the province of Epidaurus Limraras, which is almost identically geographically with Maleas Peninsula, are also included.
A spectacular sandy beach of three and a half kilometers, stretching almost to the Archangelos. Golden sand, deep blue waters and colorful pebbles where the wave opens make up its idyllic scenery. A canteen provides the necessary coffee and relaxed music in the months of … deep summer, but also the lovers of untouched natural landscapes, do not be disappointed: Most of the beach remains dreamily quiet, and free from the rush of the recliner.
Elafonisos has, among other things, three of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, an extremely rare natural wealth, attractive landscapes, undersea treasures and the well-known submerged state, “Pailopetri”.
Made of sea, sky and history, Monemvasia welcomes its guests warmly and promises them its name. Only Emvasi, to the supremacy of the medieval yesterday and to the quality comforts of today’s demanding. A single entrance, however, leads to a large set of options for relaxation, fun, but also a tour of the most unique historical memories of the past.
The profession of the navy is indissolubly linked to the history of the Vatikán region for many centuries. The Naval Tracking and Launching Museum was established in 2015, after a long effort of local residents, the Municipality of Monemvasia and many other institutions.
The exhibits include photographic material and objects, through which the naval history of the place unfolds. Most of the exhibits come from private donations.
The Museum is housed in the area of the old Primary School of Neapolis, which has been renovated and meets all the standards of hospitality of the exhibits.
A few kilometers away from Archangelos, the seaside village of Plytra, with its golden sand and the ouzo that stretch tables next to the sea, hid in its waters a secret: The immersed state of Ancient Asopos. The ruins of the city, which sank in 365 AD from a powerful earthquake, you will see them where you are swimming – the waters are so crystal-clear that you do not even need a diving mask (although it would certainly not be a bad idea to take one with you if you want to take a look at them close).
Pounta is a large, shallow and sandy beach near the village of Viglafia, Laconia, the southern Peloponnese. From here, the boat travels to the island of Elafonissos.
The sea is shallow, crystal clear and deep blue. The eastern part of the beach consists of large dunes with small shrubs. The beach is a popular place for campers, although there is no official campsite. People with campers usually stop behind the dunes or on the small car park near the ferry pier.
From the eastern side of the beach begins Pavilopetri – the sunken city that is 5000 years old. Many centuries ago the island has been connected with the mainland and there has been a town in this place. An earthquake separates the island and floods the city into the sea. The sea gradually covered everything with sand, the city disappeared from the human eye and memories. The underwater city was discovered in 1967 and actively researched by underwater archaeologists. Tourists and ferry passengers will see little or no visual evidence of what was once a prosperous city.
