Voidokoilia is a beach in Messinia that is considered one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. It is famous mainly for its all-round shape reminiscent of the letter O. It is located north of Pylos, on the coast of the Ionian, and is adjacent to the lagoon of Gialova from which it is separated by a strip of sand dunes.
The beach and the wider area has been designated a place of special natural beauty and is part of the Natura 2000 Network. At the southern end of Voidokoilia, the Korifassios promontory is developed, where the ruins of the classical city of Pylos were located. The beach is accessed by a dirt road that crosses the perimeter of the Gialova lagoon, by a dirt road from the village of Petrochori and by a path from Divari beach.
As for the food, a word of caution is needed here. Precisely because Voidokilia beach is a Natura 2000 protected area, there is absolutely no structure to anything, so as to preserve as much of its natural beauty as possible. Therefore, you will come prepared with food, water, sunscreen, towels, mats and umbrellas and anything else you need. Clearly, you will need to remember to leave the space clean and tidy.
