The river is actually the borderline between Messonghi and Moraitika.
The beach is protected from strong winds, with shallow waters. The sea is deepening slowly and gradually so it’s quite safe for swimming which makes the beach ideal for families with kids. Far from the main road, the beach is organized and you can find snack bars, taverns, fish restaurants, coffee shops and areas suitable for children. For those who want something more adventurous, Messonghi beach offers a large variety of water sports and equipment for beginners and more experienced fans.

Don’t forget to take a walk along the grassy banks of the river. There is a small platform 30 meters long that offers you the chance to go closer to it with small boats. It’s also good mentioning the camping of Messonghi which you can find along the banks of the river and has been there since the 1950s.
