This beautiful waterfall is situated in the nature reserve of Polilimnio. Translated ‘Polilimnio’ means ‘many lakes’. The creek overcomes a considerable altitude difference. The lakes of Polilimnio have water of good quality, so it is nice (but cold) to swim here. Very beautiful is the emerald green colour of the water. You should watch out for the snakes however, because there are some venomous snakes too at Polilimnio. But as they are very shy, you should not worry too much and enjoy the swim. The shortest hike might take up to one hour (without breaks for taking pictures), but use good shoes as there are two substantial ascents. If you want to hike the whole distance, it will take about two hours and if you’re planning to swim or have a picnic you should calculate about three to four hours.
In the village Charavgi near Polilimnio there are some taverns with a great view over the valley and its nature.

A nice view over three areas of water at the south-western part of the Peloponnese. First you have Voidokilia beach, a very beautiful, sandy beach with crystal clear water. There behind you see the Gialova Lagoon, natural habitat for a lot of birds and there behind you can see the Ormos Navarinou, the natural port area at Pylos. The town of Pylos is visible too, at the upper right part of the picture!.
