A seaside town nestled amongst the craggy cliffs and mountain peaks of the Peloponnese, Kardamili is an ancient settlement offering up history, beauty, nature and awesome climbing! Stone-built houses and medieval towers peek out from the surrounding cypress trees and olive groves while intimate little coves line the shore. Standing guard behind the town is the magnificent Peloponnese mountain range.
It is the mountains that call people to this particular corner of Greece. Kardamili is surrounded by some of the best climbing spots in the Mediterranean, thanks to the glorious Mount Taygetus, the highest peak in the Peloponnese standing at a stunning 2407m. Mount Taygetus boasts a sheer cone-shaped summit, perfect for experienced climbers looking to test their metal. But it’s not all about the peak, there are multiple crags, caves and gorges winding through the mountain slopes, from Kalamitsi crag sports park to beautiful Lagada crag.
Kardamili is right in the heart of climbing country. It’s a stunning spot to spend a day, just over an hour drive from the Neilson beachclubs of Messini and Buca. Kardamili is perfectly situated to unwind with a bite to eat or a dip in the sea in between scaling the breath-taking heights of the surrounding gorges, cliffs and mountain peaks.
