1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Rescuing some hatchling turtles, which had been confused by the lights of the adjacent campsite when they emerged from their nest on the beach, and encouraging them to go the right way towards the sea. Two hours after the "turtle emergency" was declared, all but a handful of the escapees had successfully flapped their way to the water, and were taking their first swims. Between the volunteers and the interested and helpful campers of all ages, we probably rescued about 50-60 turtles.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring a dependable alarm clock, as the starts are early. The food is great, but watch your waistline. Bring a mask and snorkel for swimming, especially at Valtaki Beach.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Supported conservation; supported local people by using public transport and eating locally.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very relaxed pace, good to have a chance to make the world better. Gythio is a pretty little town and the surroundings in Mani have very very dramatic scenery.
