Strongyli Lagoon is right next to Pounda beach, opposite Elafonisos and Pavlopetri.
It’s an important biotope, an extension of the wetlands of Maganos and Neratziona, part of a NATURA 2000 area, a stop-over site for migratory birds and the home of rare flora. An endangered species of cedar tree also survives here. The whole area is a historical and ecological treasury.
From the village Aghios Georgios, drive on to the settlement of Viglafia and turn left towards the lagoon just past the settlement.
