The best climate in Greece, Kalamata

Very small village, only with some buildings and small store, at least one restaurant, directly at the train station.
The city is well known for its healing fountains.
There's no nightlife, but a great wide beach, where a lot of bagpackers just camp in the woods. So it makes some fun, just staying at the beaches for some time, swimming in the sea and meet other people from all over the world.

The climate is also very pleasant, it's like 9months of the year is summer. Poeple are friendly and kind, they're mostly fishermen, the fish is also very good here.

Situated in the proximity of Pigadia is a beautiful beach which is famous by the name of Achata Beach. The presence of huge number of pebbles in this beach and the clean plus beautiful waters of this beach add to its importance. You can also enjoy local sea food which is regularly sold on the beach itself. Another beach in the proximity of Pigadia is Apella Beach which has an awesome tavern that adds to the beauty of the beach. The surrounding mountains and the awesome relaxing atmosphere is something which no one would like to miss while in this island.... Read more »
