View from the road to Navarino castle

Divari is a long sandy beach which starts at the end of Gialova village and continues forward to the Gialova lagoon and the old Navarino castle. It engages the north part of Navarino bay and actually divides it from the lagoon.

Divari has a narrow but very long beach strip (about 1.5 km). There are no building around except for a campsite which is just outside Gialova village. In the summer two beach cantinas provides sunbeds and parasols but most of the beach is free. The water is shallow and suitable for kids, waves are rare even in windy days. Divari beach ends with the north end of the bay, just below the old Navarino castle. In this part the island of Sfaktiria with its Glossa beach is so close, that you can easily swim to it from Divari.

Voidokillia beach is on the other side of the promontory with the castle atop..
