We sail toward the Mani region, (25 mg), peninsula between the two gulfs of Messinia and Laconia. It’s a barren land, with rocks, stone walls, Indian figs. The bays and headlands are torn by waves and wind. The towers of Mani, made of stone are the main characteristic of the area. We anchor by the famous Diros Caves, the best in Europe, rich in magnificent colours, stalactites and stalagmites. They create forms that seem to embrace themselves. Shore excursion to the caves, with long, flat boats guided by expert local guides for more than an hour…

It is built at an altitude of 250 meters with its cobbled streets, towers, stone houses and old churches. it was proclaimed “cultural-historical patromionio of the nation.” We anchor for the night in the picturesque bay of Gerolimenas (12mg), its water is really transparent. There are small fishing boats, taverns by the sea, calm and peace. Its bay is a warm hug. Dinner on board in the cockpit, served by your skipper with fish specialities.
