Megali Ammos beach(below the pitch): It is a location with easy access. The seabed is beautiful and morphology resembles the tropics. The divers will encounter here a wide range of Mediterranean fishes, rarely seals and if they are lucky loggerhead turtles.
1st Stair: Megali Ammos is a beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear waters. Access to dive the spot is by boat (1-2 minutes away from Megali Ammos beach). The bottom reminds of coral reefs with the sea not so rich, but with many surprises such as sea turtles and monk seals. Spring and autumn meet local fish herds.
The easiest crag in Kyparissi, with routes starting at 5a. Kastraki is in the middle section of the village, above the church and not far from the beach, in lush surroundings with beautiful views. Kastraki has all the makings of a popular crag: very good quality limestone, low to mid-grades (5a-6c), a “central” location and a very easy approach. All routes are very well-protected, so go for the insight!
Quality grey wall with good hidden holds and well-protected routes. Unusual, prominent features in the middle section of the crag. The rock in the lower part of the routes looks awkward, but the climbing is impressive. Jerome’s House is ideal for climbers looking for grades from 6a to 7a+.
Highly featured, compact red and gray limestone of exceptional quality. There are endless stalactites and tufa formations, caves, overhangs, and the height of the cliffs often exceeds 50m. The existing routes are equipped with stainless-steel bolts and they are mostly in the mid- to high-grades (6c-8b+).
Kyfanta hotel is centrally situated in Kyparissi, being a couple of minutes away from the Supermarket, the beach, restaurants and cafeterias. The hostess, Esther who is from Barcelona, speaks Spanish, English, Greek, French and Italian.
Special offers will be available for the climbing enthusiasts.
