A beautiful escape that you don’t want to miss out on is to the Gerakas Lagoon and Gerakas village.
Just 20 km north of Monemvasia town, this lake or lagoon is beyond picturesque and offers many activities for those visiting.
This lagoon is nothing short of a fairytale — with traditional houses dotted throughout, not to mention the calm waters, surrounded by greenery. This narrow and deep inlet is nestled between high cliffs and is considered to be the most southern fjord in Europe.
Besides the breathtaking lagoon, fish taverns are also a common attraction for those who visit Gerakas village.
If you have time on your trip, you can also visit a church dedicated to Agios Georgios of Gerakas, located in the surrounding area of the settlement, that dates back to the 19th century.
Many people find that Gerakas Lagoon is the perfect location for mooring and anchoring, since it is completely protected by the steep slopes which surround it.
Where do you stay while visiting this amazing place? For a perfect stay in Gerakas village why not stay at a hotel named after the huge chain that once closed off the port during the period of the Venetians, Porto Cadena Hotel is composed of seven fully equipped residences, and a suite, all created with respect to the natural and historical environment that surrounds in the seaside settlement of Gerakas.
