Alypa is a gorgeous beach, well-hidden in a small cove, 42 km away from Gythio. Stone houses and typical towers of Mani crown the cliffs around the bay. It has white pebbles and emerald waters that goes deep quickly.
A jetty on the north side serves as a port for small boats. Alypa is not organized but you will find a few rooms to rent and a tavern. It is a very good choice for those seeking more private and secluded beaches and who want to get away from crowds of tourists. Scenes of the film 'The Tempest', directed by John Cassavetis were filmed in Alypa.
