Activities

Diving

Several diving operators run certification courses, as well as shore and boat dives to nearby rocky bays, caves and canyons.

Hiking

There are well-worn walking paths to the scenic villages of Selia, Moni Finika and Lefkogia, and a lovely walk along the Kourtaliotiko Gorge to Moni Preveli. An easy 30-minute uphill path to Myrthios begins just before the youth hostel.
