Пилос — древний город, расположенный в 52 км. от Каламаты, в бухте Наварино.
Здесь несколько отличных песчаных пляжей, самый большой из которых — Войдокоилия (Voidokoilia).
В течение последних 30 лет Пилос постепенно завоевывает все большую популярность в качестве морского курорта. В бухте построена новая марина на 250 яхт.
Пилос уютно пристроился в одной из самых красивых бухт Пелопоннеса, в окружении потрясающих пляжей, близ курорта экстра-класса Коста-Наварино.

Sports & nature

The harbor of Pylos is one of the largest and safest harbors in the world, with a length of 4800 m and a width of 3600 m. The sea reaches 50 meters depth. The island of Sphaktiria in front of the bay of Navarino, serves as a natural breakwater. In the south of the island is located the islet of Pylos or Tsichli-baba or Fanari. There, in 1890 the French Republic constructed ​​a monument for the French dead of the Naval Battle of Navarino. In the center of the bay of Navarino lies the islet of Chelonisi or Chelonaki that was named so due to its shape that resembles to a turtle. Over Chelonisi was erected a monument for the English dead men of the Naval Battle of Navarino. At the edge of the settlement, in the southern part of the bay, dominates Niokastro, one of the best-preserved fortresses in Greece with beautiful pine trees and important monuments, which is an excellent example of military architecture from the 16th century onwards. In Niokastro is housed the building of Pasha, the Museum of Underwater Antiquities, a new museum with important archaeological treasures of the seas and shipwrecks of the Peloponnese. The barracks of Maison, the rectangular two-storey stone building, which you will see on your left as you enter the castle, is used by the marine antiquities center. At a central point rises the church of the Transfiguration of the Savior. The walk on the road around Niokastro unfolds magnificent views over the bay of Navarino and the open sea of the Ionian.
