Create an itinerary including Voidokilia Beach
Shaped like the Greek letter omega, Voidokilia Beach sits hidden by sand dunes and protected from wind. Often named one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, this stretch is a geological formation unlike any other. The warm water remains shallow for quite a distance from the shore, making it an ideal location for young children. After taking a dip in the clear blue water, walk up to the Old Frankish Castle and the cave of King Nestor. Bring a picnic, as there are no facilities on the beach.

  • Secluded beach with sand parking spot. If you come early enough you get parking and a good spot. Water is shallow and clear so perfect for lounging out in the sun. Very quiet surrounding. Worth the drive there and walk around if you have time.
  • Wow is all I can say. The view atop the hill is beyond words. A little out of the away to reach but definitely worth the drive. I wish there were amenities like restrooms nearby but except for that oversight the beach is beautiful. The water is warm and clear. Worth the drive. Spend a few hours there to enjoy it and soak in the views.
