Ritsa beach is located at the entrance of Kardamyli (38 kilometres from Kalamata) by turning right at the school. It is a beach with coarse white pebbles and clear blue waters, a large part of which is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds. The waters deepen sharply, while the seabed is ideal for underwater exploration and snorkelling.
The Byros Gorge, one of the most beautiful in Western Mani, ends at the long Ritsa beach (1 kilometre long). Finally, there is a parking space on the other side of the road.
