Finikounda is a picturesque fishing vallage between Koroni and Methoni with a magnificent gravel sand beach which is visited by many tourists every year. Green hills, valleys crossed by small rivers, flat areas, endless sandy beaches lacy bays and 4 islands in its horizon which are within a 10-minute distance; Schiza, Sapietza, Venetiko and St. Marina which surround a clean and calm sea. During the Protohellenic Era, it developed as a naval and transportation centre, while in the area of Analipsis have been found walls and ostraka (fragments of vases)of the era. The ancient Finikes who were a naval nation found the community «Finikous» where Anemomylos, of contemporary Finikounda, is today. The increasing number of tourists every year has created an excellent touristic infrastructure with hotels, rooms to rent, campsites, areas for recreation and leisure as well as tavernas with fresh fish.
