Petalidi  

Petalidi - Messenia (Greece)

Petalidi. Petalidi is a traditional Greek coastal village, twenty-six kilometres west of Kalamata at the peloponnese in Greece. The town is colourful and busy. Life is focused on the main square near the small sandy pebble beach. On the main square is the church of Agios Nikolaos located. On the square are lots of trees and palm trees. Here are many restaurants and bars and also the most stores.

Petalidi originally was a fishing village. When you visit the port, you will see still fishermen with their nets perform their work. Near Petalidi lie the ruins of Old Koroni, a city that was built in the fourth century BC and many other sites like Post Minoan walls, ruins of the Roman era, Venetian castles and much more.

Petalidi is ideal for people who like holidays in a quiet area, away from mass tourism. Because Petalidi is fairly centrally located in the prefecture of Messinia, one can explore from here easily the whole region without driving too much.
