Whether you’re looking for adventure or want nothing more than to just sit back and soak up the warm, Greek sun, this charming resort has something for you. Everywhere you go you’ll be surrounded by natural beauty and rustic architecture, which gives Stoupa its traditional feel.
The Diros Caves
Stoupa has an air of mystery about it thanks to the magical Diros Caves. These caves can only be reached by boat, which gives you the chance to see the spectacular rock formations that were formed thousands of years ago. Once you arrive inside the caves you’ll be able to read all about the history and even see the perfectly preserved skeletons of the people who once called these caves home.
You’ll find great views all over Stoupa, with many areas being completely unspoilt by modern buildings. No matter where you go around the area, you’ll stumble upon quaint villages that still retain all of their rustic charm. Also make sure that you visit a local taverna while you are there to try the world-renowned Kalamata olives that are grown locally in the region.
Fun for all the children
With plenty of fun and excitement all around, Stoupa is a resort perfect for keeping the children occupied. The open-air railway museum at Kalamata gives children a chance to experience what remains of the local history. There are lots of beaches with fun activities for the whole family, such as scuba diving and snorkelling in the calm, blue waters.
