It is always quite a sight to see so many people in the winter waters while the beach is holding memories from her summer visitorsdsc_0699otvdsc_0494otvMessinia has an endless list of  beaches and they are all so diverse in their size and sand quality from very light white sands, through golden, little pebbles and volcanic rocks. Lagouvardos is one of those ‘golden’ sandy beaches and it stretches for two kilometers having rock formations on either side and it is surrounded by pine tree forest.dsc_0708cotvdsc_0725otvdsc_0719otvIt is one of the Kyparissia gulf beaches where the sea turtles caretta-caretta make their nests. During the summer months there is a surf rental and surf school (Beachbreak Lagouvardos) operating on the beach and a canteen/bar opens with umbrellas and sunbeds. There are also showers and cabins to change.The beach is located 2 km north of Marathoupoli, a picturesque fishing village with many taverns, shops etc and with lovely views of the island Proti. It is only 5 km away from the town of Gargalianoi.dsc_0585cotvdsc_0635otv …Is he falling or waving goodbye to the Old Year 2016?dsc_0617cotv
