    Make a holiday rental home or villa in Finikounda, Greece your home away from home

    The quaint fishing village of Finikounda (sometimes spelt ‘Finikounta’) sits in the most southerly part of the western Peloponnese, Greece. The destination has great beaches and good amenities, but unlike many other beach resorts in Greece (and Europe in general) does not become overrun by tourists during summer months. This means an enjoyable and authentic Greek holiday can be had, but with tourism on the increase in Finikounda it is suggested that you get in before the crowds arrive!

    Things to do in Finikounda, Greece

    The main reason that people visit Finikounda is for the magnificent beaches the area has to offer. There are three in total, the longest of which is an impressive 2km long. Although these beaches receive their fair share of tourists, the good news is that it is always possible to find your own secluded spot, even in the height of summer.

    Windsurfing in Finikounda is extremely popular, and a number of well-established operators are located along the beaches. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at this energetic sport, Finikounda is the place to do it, but if you are content with just going for a swim you will find that the water is clean, clear and warm (during summer months) – ideal for families with young children.

    Finikounda has good amenities, and some of the best tavernas are located near the beach and are a great place to relax and chat with a good mix of tourists and locals. The restaurants around the village continue the theme of being authentic and enjoyable without being too touristy, and are the perfect place to sample dishes of fresh, locally-caught fish such as stuffed sardines, most of which are home-made to old family recipes.
