Kalamata is Messinia’s capital, the second-largest city in the Peloponnese peninsula and region in southern Greece. You may know the name from the popular olive variety, but here you will find everything for a memorable holiday – history, culture and beaches.

Mount Taygetos towers above a city whose beach appears endless, yet is home to modern cafes, beach bars, restaurants, fine hotels, markets, historic buildings, a port, summer dance festival and fun nightlife, making it an appealing destination for families, couples and solo travellers. As you walk down Aristomenous Street, go into the arcades, which are full of places to eat.

Greek hospitality is famous, which means wherever you stop to dine, you will receive a warm welcome and sample delicious food, including moussaka and, of course, those famous dark purple olives.
