Outer Mani offers some of the most exhilarating scenery in the Peloponnese and Stoupa epitimises this. Stoupa and the next village Kalogria could mistaken as one, if it were not for the small hill that separates them. Stoupa has more of a tourist focus; the beach front is lined with bars and restaurants, all offering a warm and generous welcome. The sand at Kalogria’s beach is a little less coarse, but the beach at Stoupa is larger. The warm clear blue sea is perfect for swimming. Stoupa is such a beautiful location, but it feels like a secret that is yet to be discovered.
