The village of Stoupa has easily earned the title “fairy of the Messinian”.
The newly built village that evolved at a fast pace into a famous tourist resort. Its original name was Potamos, from the river that crossed it, but it was renamed Stoupa from the pots that the natives put in the sea to soften and process them easily. The two scenic, shallow, sandy and organized beaches with its clear waters attract visitors from all over the world. The diversity of the landscape is unique. True gifts of nature, rivers, unbelievable caves, harbors, islets and the Castle Hill. Excursions in the wider area offer strong emotions. Restaurants, taverns and cafes on the beach cover all tastes gastronomically.
