Every visitor that goes by municipality of Messini should find some time in order to visit and why not also stay in Agios Andreas and enjoy it’s healthy and relaxing lifestyle options!

The coastal village of Agios Andreas takes its name from the Byzantine church of the 12th century, located on the road to the nearby village of Logga. The church is one of the sights of the area where you can visit while you are there.

As in Messini Agios Andreas bases its economy on agriculture. Oil, raisins, potatoes and early vegetables are grown, while the area is quickly developing in terms of tourism industry with the creation of infrastructure at the beaches of Bouka, Analipsi and Velika.

In Agios Andreas, similarly as throughout the prefecture of Messinia, you’ll find a rich traditional cuisine and plenty of pure and healthy native products. The main agricultural foods produced in Messinia are olives, grapes, raisins, figs, citrus and fruit and vegetables.

Some of the specialties of the local cuisine are salads, boiled goat, scrambled cod with garlic, roast pork, and sage-smoked sausages unique to their taste and quality.

Try even marvelous “diples”, “lalagia” and oil bagels. Don’t forget to shop the far-famed Kalamata olives, honey, that are of excellent quality, “pasteli”, “ouzo”, balsamic vinegar, “trachana”, noodles, herbs and organic products.

Agios Andreas as well nearby areas offers lots of traditional tavernas, restaurants that will serve the best recipes and dishes of the area with local products.

If you like boat trips from the sea you can well admire the beautiful green coast and take a boat for a trip that will fill you with memories. Ask locals for one boat trip and you won’t regret it!

Also a tour to the castle of Koroni, to deserted caves and snorkelling on the island Venetiko is an unforgettable experience for every traveller. Especially in the months of July and August it is very busy here with mostly Greek tourism and the associated local celebrations and feasts that every tourist can participate, enjoy and learn about traditions.
