The story of Costa Navarino is as old as Greece itself.

This is a place where friendship can always be found, where happiness is measured by footsteps in the sand.
Costa Navarino is located in Messinia in the southwest Peloponnese, in one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking landscapes in the Mediterranean. Its philosophy is driven by a genuine desire to promote Messinia, while protecting and preserving not only its natural beauty but also a remarkable cultural heritage spanning 4,500 years.
