Opposite the fortress is a cozy square on the beach with many terraces of the various cafes and taverns.
There is also a children’s playground and an information kiosk. The natural harbor of Methoni attracts more and more sailors, the bay gives a good shelter and the view is beautiful. From the harbor it is a short walk to the old town, so the many small shops there is still a nice Greek authentic atmosphere.
On the west coast you can enjoy a beautiful romantic sunset.
