A narrow channel links this 40-hectare lagoon to a scenic fjord-like inlet opening to the sea that has always been a safe haven for seafarers.

The lagoon is shallow and provides food and shelter for migratory birds (Little Egrets, Great Egrets, Grey Herons, Little Grebes, Black-necked Grebes) and sometimes even swans and mallards, among others.

Access:
The wetland is 20 kilometres north of Monemvasia, about 20 minutes by car. There is plenty of space to park around the lagoon. A bus service links Gerakas and Molai twice a week.
