Voidokilia is one of the most beautiful and famous beaches on the west coast of messinia . It’s an omega (Ω) -shaped cove with white sand, warm turquoise water, lush vegetation and a peaceful lagoon. Voidokoilia owes its name to the Greek word Voufras that means “where the oxen live.” Others also believe that the name represents the curved shape of the shore which resembles the belly of an ox! The location of the beach is remote, the road to reach the place is very narrow and requires attention and patient driving, especially during the busy summer months (July- August).The whole area, including Gialova Lagoon is protected zone of Natura 2000, so, do not look for any organized touristic activity on the beach. The closest mini shop to buy some refreshments is 1.5km away. There are several things to do or to explore in the area. Swimming in crystal clear waters of Voidokilia and admiring the wonderful scenery is the best choice.
