Olive Harvesting in Messinia
To help immerse guests in authentic Greek culture, The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, offers a Costa Navarino Olive Harvesting Experience as part of their Messenian Authenticity Program. The hands-on activity involves placing a net under olive trees and shaking the branches so the fruit falls to the ground. Guests can ask questions about the process before heading to a local mill to see how the olives are pressed and bottled. Afterward, enjoy a delicious tasting of Greek olive oil. Keep in mind, this excursion is only offered during October and November, the season for harvesting olives in Greece.
