Stoupa, the community of Neochorio Lefktrou, where the ancient polisma of Mycaenean Lefktro was, is 50 km away from Kalamata and is on the way to Areopoli and the Caves of Diro. In the community there’s a beach with granular sand and crystal waters. From time to time, semi-sweet water springs up which probably comes from Drako (=dragon), a stream which originates from Taygetos and reaches the beach of Stoupa, while occasionally, brackishness in the shape of a threshing-floor appears and impresses the visitors. The scenery being picturesque, the calm water, the fish tavernas and the hospitality of the local people have lately turned Stoupa into the most popular holiday resort of Mani.
