Back to things to do

Enjoy the night life

Most villages in the area have restaurants and tavernas. People are usually very relaxed and friendly there.
The area has a few discos, more can be found in Kalamata. Stoupa (500 m.) and Kardamyli (6 km) are very lively at night with lots of people doing their 'volta' (stroll).
Agios Nikolaos (3 km) is a smaller fisherman's village but this also has a couple of tavernas. In summer, many restaurants will have live music.

After sunset...

.. most people spend their days on the beach relaxing. When it cools down at night the people come out for a stroll. The boulevard closes for traffic at night and Greek and foreign families go out. There are plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance from Villa To Kyma. Restaurants and bars have crowded terraces outside and are open until late. Most Greeks don't go out for dinner before ten o'clock at night in summer. But you are welcome at most hours of the day! There is a wide choice in both meat dishes and fish. There are also lots of vegetarian dishes in Greek cuisine. Children are welcome everywhere. There are a few bars and discos in Stoupa but not many. Most discos are in Kalamata. Kardamyli and Agios Nikolaos also have nice restaurants and are worth a visit at night.

Panagyri

You will also want to keep an eye out for banners and posters along or over the road advertising a Panagyri. Unfortunately they are usually in Greek so maybe it's wise to ask around. A Panagyri is the annual village festival that most villages celebrate in summer, in honour of their patron saint. The festivities usually take place on the church square or in the harbour. There will be a live band with Greek music and dancing. You buy your food and drinks there: tender roast pig that the butcher chops off for you, Greek salad, tzatziki, olives, bread etc. It's self service so you will have to look where the queue is.

Other festivities

Keep an eye out for posters of activities in the area. Open air concerts, restaurants with live music and dancing, festivals, a movie night. Most take place outside.
