Where the hills of the Peloponnese meet the Ionian Sea, you can discover a prime sustainable destination called Costa Navarino. The beauty of the pristine natural landscape, entwined with centuries of history and culture, is mixed with energy generated from diversity to bring the first W in Greece to the Navarino Waterfront 13-hectare beachfront site, the newest integrated area of Costa Navarino.
The entire property is designed as a Greek coastal village—but imbued with W’s modern soul. Reflecting Costa Navarino’s dedication to sustainably promoting the local culture and heritage, each structure complements the natural beachfront setting, while the overall aesthetic design is inspired by Greek handicrafts filtered through a prism of fresh and modern beach living.
The accommodation options in W Costa Navarino range from Fabulous Bay and Infinity swim-up rooms, with a pool shared with friends or family in adjoining rooms, to superb 1 or 2-bedroom suites with own pools, and 2 or 3-bedroom villas with expanded private pools – ideal for larger groups.
Each guest also has access to Costa Navarino’s 23 dining venues, plus a wealth of outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, hiking, biking, tennis and golf. Culinary experiences are also available, from authentic village cooking classes and farm to table lunches to olive oil and wine tastings.

The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.
When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalized same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognized civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognized.
The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.
On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.
Though LGBTQ+ travelers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.

Dining and Leisure Options
The beating heart of W Costa Navarino is the Beach Club. A place with unmistakably Greek DNA, where local and international DJs amp up the vibes that create a natural transition from casual beach life to high-intensity, late-night dance events. The bar serves signature cocktails crafted with local herbs and natural ingredients, while the restaurant offers Greek-inspired dishes prepared with regional produce that captures the epitome of Mediterranean cuisine. At sunset, the Beach Club transforms into a place for reflection—and anticipation of the night ahead—with pop-up happenings by the pier.
Another highlight is the Navarino Sea Watersports center, offering a range of exciting aquatic activities. These include a diving experience during which participants can take an active part in sustainability research or initiatives to remove plastic waste from the sea. And there is plenty more fun to be had with snorkeling, stand-up paddle-boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, tubing and banana boating. Watersports center will also host an all-natural restaurant serving freshly made dishes prepared with local and organically grown ingredients.
