Description

The first stop will be Avacas Gorge, a trekker’s paradise, offering spectacular views and a plethora of local flora and fauna, including the endangered centauria akamantis, an endemic plant found only in the gorge.

The gorge itself is carved out of limestone rock rising as high as 30 meters and narrowing dramatically at one point.

Your journey continues along the coastline towards Lara Bay, the nesting ground of two species of marine turtles, The Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta Caretta). Learn about the Lara Turtle Conservation project, the life of these animals and see their nests. If you are lucky you

might even see the baby turtles hatching (end of July to October). There will also be some time for swimming at this secluded paradise beach.

Next stop will be Saint George Church, where three early Christian Basilicas and a bath were found and excavated in the 1950’s. There will be free time for lunch. On your way back to the hotels, see the Sea Caves, the mysterious wave cut ‘sculpture’ formed out of the natural rocky shore and beach caves.
