The beaches of the western coast, whether sand or pebble, face the mountains of Mani and are usually blessed with calm waters. Beginning with picturesque Elia, the options for swimming are at Kavo, the small beach in the port (Limani), Viandini and the Blue Flag beach of Tigania.

Further south into the area around Asopos are Boza and the busier but again, Blue Flag beach at Plytra.

Harahia, famous for its multi-coloured pebbles and Pyla, which offers several amenities, are both close to Daimonia. A little further on is the sandy cove of Archangelos, which also boasts a Blue Flag.
