Close to the village of Agios Dimitrios in West Mani, you will come across Katafygi beach. This is one of the region's more spectacular beaches with its imposing and wild landscape.
Large parallel stone formations function as natural platforms, which can either be used for sunbathing or as "diving boards" for cooling down in the refreshing waters. This is not an organized beach, so be sure to take the necessary provisions before going. Lastly, due to the large waves that break on the shore, extra caution is necessary when it is windy.
