At this beautiful sandy beach of Stoupa in the Mani, some cliffs and fishing boats can be found, nicely arranged. In the evening, after darkness has fallen, this arrangement combined with the illuminations gives a nice long exposure with a great mood.
When driving from Kalamata to the Mani, once you’ve passed the highest point you arrive at this point with a terrific view over the Outer Mani. The Mani starts here with Kardamyli and reaches all the way down to the most southern point of this peninsula on the Peloponnese. On this picture you can also see Stoupa in the background.
This photograph shows the coast at Kardamili (Kardamyli) shortly after sunset. The clouds are still being illuminated by sunlight while the flowers are being illuminates softly by the flashlight of my camera.
This picture shows the view from the mountains behind Kardamili over the town itself and Ritsa Beach. After that the landmass blocks the view on Kalamata. The land below the clouds at the other side of the water belongs to the coastline around Koroni.
The Agios Spyridon Church is situated in the historic part of Kardamyli. It has been renovated and looks glorious again. Kardamyli is part of the beautiful Mani in the south of the Peloponnese, Greece.
Kardamili (sometimes written as Kardamyli, Greek καρδαμυλη) is a small village in the Mani region south of Kalamata. Kardamili is very recommendable for a visit or vacation. You can expect good food and a relaxing athmosphere.
