A half day cycling trip in a unique wetland combined with swim in the famous Voidokilia beach

What to expect?

Gialova lagoon in south Peloponnese is one of the most important wetlands and the southernmost one not only in Greece but Europe hosting numerous species of endemic and migratory birds. Within short distance from Pylos and the legendary Nestor Palace, the lagoon is also near the famous omega shape beach of Voidokilia. A unique place due to its evergreen charm and ecosystem the area attracts naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world.

Our cycling trip starts from the town of Gialova. We cycle partly on flat local gravel and asphalt roads, among significantly old olive tree farms, descending all the way to the coastline, reaching the spectacular site of the Gialova Lagoon. We traverse the lagoon home to 270 bird species in Greece through a narrow gravel road. Here, we may have the opportunity to use our binoculars and watch from a close distance a flock of flamingos resting at the shallow waters of the lagoon. Riding through dunes we reach the famous Voidokilia Beach. An option here is to have a stop for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. After a refreshing swim we enjoy by the beach a delicious picnic of local delicacies before heading back to the town of Gialova.
