When you hear stories of Greece, it’s typically about ancient ruins, stunning island beaches, and Mediterranean flavors.

Never have I ever heard about hidden waterfalls cascading into crystal clear aqua and turquoise lakes. That is, the hidden gem of Polylimnio Waterfalls in the Messina area of the Peloponnese. 

Why visit the Polylimnio Waterfalls?

The reason why you should visit Polylimnio Waterfalls, or Gorge of Polylimnio Waterfalls as they are sometimes called, is simply it’s a side of Greece you didn’t realize was there.

The waterfalls and pools are an idyllic backdrop for nature lovers and adventure seekers.

There is a short 3km out and back trail that leads you to the main waterfall, so there is a touch of adventure as you scramble over rocks.

This secluded paradise provides a refreshing escape from the summer heat, with its emerald pools and cascading waterfalls forming a landscape of beautiful nature with aqua blue waters.

The lush vegetation includes olive trees, pine forests, and an array of wildflowers, creating a vibrant and fragrant environment. Keep an eye out for various bird species, butterflies, and even turtles that call this area home.

The Polylimnio Waterfalls are a collection of cascading waterfalls and interconnected fresh water lakes located in the heart of Peloponnese formed by the flow of the Kadis River.
