Flights & getting there
Stoupa is 1km west of the main Areopoli–Kalamata road, connected by small, perpendicular roads that lead to the larger of Stoupa’s main beaches. Buses stop at the junctions of the northern and southern approach roads (one near the school, the other near a bakery). Two to four daily buses head to Kalamata (€4.40, 1¼ hours) via Kardamyli. There is also service the other way to Itilo (one to two Monday to Saturday), with connections to Areopoli. Get to the bus stop early, as buses sometimes pass ahead of schedule. Conversely, be prepared to wait if they are running a little late.
