A colorful and authentic Easter experience

The Easter holiday is fast approaching and Costa Navarino is inviting guests to celebrate in the most authentic way.

Discover traditional Easter delicacies of Messinia with the help of local women who will be preparing lambrokouloura (special sweet bread), lalaggia (pancakes) and pasteli (sesame seed bars) at the vibrant Agora, while young guests can make chocolate eggs at a special confectionery workshop or join the outdoor treasure hunt.

During the Greek Orthodox Holy week leading to Easter Sunday on April 8th,  get acquainted with Messinian age-old customs, festivities and solemn rituals. Starting on the morning of Holy Friday by adorning the “Epitaphios” with flowers, up to the joyful culmination of Easter Sunday, this Easter break promises to be a memorable experience. From 6 until 10 April, festive activities at the Agora of Navarino Dunes will include traditional pastry making, Easter candles workshop and a firework spectacle on Holy Saturday. The celebrations on Easter Sunday will be accompanied by traditional music, dance and renowned local flavors.

Multiple entertainment options will keep the young guests busy and introduce them to the region’s customs and traditions, such as decorating their own candles and little-fire lanterns, joining the chocolate egg workshop, making their own local pastries and exploring the Messinian nature during the Egg Treasure Hunt on Easter Sunday. Other kids activities at play include an abundance of indoor and outdoor sports and splashing around the Aqua Park’s heated outdoor pools.

The experience will be further enriched with a variety of sports for all ages and with signature treatments at the award-winning Anazoe Spa, as well as through a series of authentic activities for an introduction to the genuine, heartfelt hospitality, history and culture of the region. For those wishing to explore a rich and glorious past, a visit to nearby cultural sites such as Nestor’s Palace, Ancient Messini, Niokastro in Pylos, as well as in sites of natural beauty such as Omega beach, Gialova lagoon and Polylimnio waterfalls will complement a perfect Easter break.
