Limeni was the home town of the most important clan in Mani, the Mavromichalis. The Mavromichalis castle has been restored by the local council to what it looked like 200 years ago. Around the coast line there are caves where Neolithic people used to live. Those caves were also used as hideouts for klephts. Limeni now harbours over 100 yachts.

Limeni's population used to be around 500, but due to many people moving to Kalamata, Sparta and Athens the population has fallen to 100.
