Kardamyli

The village of Kardamyli is the gateway to the Mani Peninsula and its best home base. It's an anti-resort that delicately mixes boutique hotels and conscientious travelers with real-world Greece. On Kardamyli's humble but fascinating main drag, locals-only mom-and-pop shops mingle with trendy tourist stalls. Visitors can enjoy hiking into the hills, learning about the region's rough-and-tumble history at Old Kardamyli, swimming at the town's Ritsa Beach, and driving deeper into the Mani Peninsula, or just relaxing and tuning in to Kardamyli's low-key ambience.
