Polylimnio Lakes Waterfalls (Kazarma Falls) Messinia Greece. What you need to know about Polylimnio Messinia before you go. Take expert local advice before jumping into lakes from high rocks at Polylimnio. It's best to reach the swimming lakes and waterfalls with good shoes. To get to the very top lake you need a head for heights because climbing is involved using the metal hand & foot holds provided and remember that climbing down is more difficult than climbing up but, ou can still explore from the bottom upward as far as you can & then return to your car, drive to the top and descend as far as you feel able - that would leave you with a relatively short unexplored section.
Directions: Follow the road from Kalamata to Pylos. After Rizomilos, look out for the village Kazarma and take the sign to the village Charavgi, from where signs take you on the earth road to the Polylimnio car park. GPS coordinates: N36 59.295 E21 51.353 - Don't leave valuables in the car or anything visible that might tempt a thief.
Map of the Lakes & Falls - There is plenty of wild life here including butterflies that seem to hang in the air almost without flapping their wings

Don't worry about the fresh water crabs when swimming. Like the sea, it would be extraordinarily unlikely that you would be nipped on the toe
