Beaches in the Municipality of Evrotas

The coastline of the Municipality Evrotas, about 17 km from Trinisa to Kokkinia beaches are an important breeding habitat of the sea turtle Caretta Caretta. In the sea of the Lakonian Gulf, whales and dolphins have been seen, as well as the green turtle Mydas which is reproduced in the Eastern Mediteranean sea. Moreover, the white Sand Lily is found in the dunes of the beaches of the Laconian Gulf. In the recent years, it is considered an endangered species by the Greek and international law as its appearance is not so dense as it used to be in the previous years.
