Nisos Proti is a magical place. An idiosyncratic and beautiful island, a breath away from Marathopoli, Messinia. It has only one beach, Vourlia, which has turquoise, exotic waters and a few meters from the beach, the wreck of the ship Anuar, 40 meters long, which was bombed during World War II lies a few meters below sea level .
The island has only one permanent resident, the monk of the Monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin of Gorgopigi, which is the only building on the island. On the "secret" island one can also see today half-ruined hermitages, inscriptions of sailors on rocks and ruins of an ancient citadel.
