INFORMATION ABOUT KORONI
Koroni is a coastal town of Messinia. It lies 52 km southwest of Kalamata and it has 1.668 inhabitants, according to the census of 2001. It is famous for its Venetian castle which towers over the city. It belongs to the Municipality of Pylos – Nestor.
Koroni town is a peninsula with the houses of the town spilling down amphitheatre like from the high ground to the harbour on the north side with the more sparsely populated verdant southern slopes culminating in the 3km of golden sands of Zaga Beach – one of the finest in Greece. On the far eastern end of this promontory, dominating the town, is the magnificent Venetian Castle of Koroni.
Stroll through the narrow whitewashed lanes of the medieval town, abundant with geraniums and every colour of bougainvillaea gracing the ancient houses of merchants and artisans. Stop awhile at a harbourside taverna and wonder at the view across the gulf to the Taygetos mountains of the Mani peninsula.
