Exceptionally rich in sealife, the surrounding waters are part of a Marine Park, protecting the Mediterranean Monk Seal and even the occasional dolphin.
Several small islands lie close off-shore, uninhabited except for a few shepherds and many goats, including Gioura, whose Blue Cave may be the home of the fabled giant, Cyclops.
Offering stunning views on all sides, walking trails run along the narrow island’s backbone, winding through olive groves and almond trees.
