Long weekends are the best to get out of town and explore new places and new beaches. We headed east this time toward Mani and decided to combine our beachside relaxation with lunch at Kalogria Beach in Stoupa. We found "Ever Blue", a beach bar that had everything we were looking for to enjoy a long beach day, including an impressive location along the beach front.
We started by ordering lunch. There were many options on the menu, some of which were missing since that day was their opening day but nevertheless, there was lots to chose from. Furthermore, the prices were very reasonable for such a touristy area. We ordered the spinach salad made with strawberries, goji berries and a strawberry vinaigrette, a cold smoked salmon and penne salad, a club sandwich on wholewheat bread and a chicken burger with fries. The food met our expectations for beach bar snack foods. We especially enjoyed the burger and the club sandwich.
Lunch was followed by coffee and some fun playing paddle ball on the beach then returning to swing on the hanging basket seats in order to cool down. The staff was exceptionally friendly and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and content with our food and our overall experience. The owner went the extra mile to come and converse with us and to further inform us/invite us to their private dining room for small parties interested in planning their meals with the help of the kitchen staff. We may just have to take her up on that offer during our next visit to Kalogria beach!
