Greece is full of surprises. Strofilia forest, situated on the northwestern tip of Peloponnese, is a testament to the statement that Greece has many hidden gems. Strofilia owes its name to the numerous pine-trees that can be found in the area.
A forest, a lake, a habitat and a breathtaking beach compose the sublime scenery which is reminiscent of African landscapes. The sizable forest, imposing earthy hills, beautiful beach and infinite light-blue sea color, add beauty to the exquisite scenery.
Strofilia extends from the Patraic Gulf to Kyllini viillage. Strofilia forest is the largest littoral forest in Greece. A line of pine-trees occupies a coastal zone of about 22 km in length. In this unique ecosystem you can find a variety of plants, pines, sand dunes, animals and sea creatures.
Strofilia Forest and Kotychi Lagoon are protected under the Ramshar Convention and the Natura 2000 network. The forest ecosystem of Strofilia is of great ecological interest because it is the most extensive Pinus pinea forest in Greece and one of the biggest in Europe.
