Messonghi is a quite, laid back resort. The beach is uncrowded and it is the perfect spot for getting away from it all and just chilling. Silence is indeed golden (apart from the birds at 6.00am!) What stands out most is the kindness and hospitality shown by the local people to visitors. Mary (of Irish parents) in Pandora Travel has so much time for everybody and works so hard to make your holiday. Messonghi has some lovely restaurants like Minore where Harris (Harry) and his family look after you and the Village Taverna where the vine leaves are to die for. There are two little villages, one near the river - turn left at water pump and the other one further down as you go to Boukari (the real village is in behind the road and many people do not get to see it). They are working villages rather than tourist traps which makes more authentic. We have been going there now for 4 years and we haven't yet been to all the restuarants in the area (manily because our Greek friend Benitia keeps cooking for us. Can't wait to go back in August.
Messonghi is just a wonderful place to chill out and relax. The locals are unique and are so helpful to everyone. They treat you like family. Beautiful walks in real Greek countryside and place is so laid back. More locals than tourists which makes it such a wonderful place. Wouldn't be anywhere else in the world - it is special but don't tell everyone about it!
