Kalamata is the second most populous city of the Peloponnese peninsula, after Patras, in southern Greece and the largest city of the homonymous administrative region. Get in touch with nature at Voidokilia Beach and Archelon Sea Turtles Rescue Center. Step off the beaten path and head to Mystras and Messinia Wild Experience.

There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Antigua Mesenia, examine the collection at ENGRAVING MUSEUM TAKIS KATSOULIDIS, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kalamata Beach.
