Stoupa is a seaside village located in the Messinian Gulf, 45 km from the city of Kalamata and 55 km away from the airport. It is a village of the Messinian Mani, which combines the mountains with the sea and the rock, with the olive groves in a unique way. An enchanting village that can charm even the most demanding visitor all year round, by maintaining its traditional character, it has been untouched by mass tourism.
During the summer season, Stoupa’s 3 organised beaches with crystal clear waters attract many people. Stoupa main beach is a crescent of natural sand with a small fishing harbour at one end and a shallow, sheltered bay at the other. Kalogria’s sandy beach is a favourite with families as it dips shallowly into the sea, and is only a 5-minute stroll from the main beach.
Halikoura beach is at the southern end of Stoupa, a couple of minutes in the other direction, offering quieter sunbathing opportunities. All beaches feature taverns for snacks and drinks. Stoupa will suit those wanting a low key, family resort, and is a popular destination for many who come year after year, looking for a friendly holiday in Greece.
Visitors can find a good range of facilities with numerous taverns and supermarkets, where foreign press can be bought. There is also a chemist, laundry, bakeries, gym, hair salons and tourist shops, where souvenirs and local products can be purchased. There is no bank in the village, but there are 2 ATMs and money can be exchanged at local travel agencies. The first aid clinic is only 4 km away in the neighbouring fishing village of Ag. Nikolaos.
