Take in exceptional sea views from the cliffs. Walk a path that the shepherds once used to take for reaching their fields up in the mountains, and on a trail strewn with prickly pears, cactuses and fiscus. Pass above the small settlement of Stroumbos with no electricity or running water. See the recently renovated Agios Ioannis Theologos monastery at an altitude of 515m. Admire its byzantine architecture and listen to the silence of this place.
