Points of interest: The Sea Caves - Agioi Anargyroi Trail is located on the cape of Cape Gkreko, within the National Forest Park, which is a Natura 2000 area. A big part of the route runs parallel to the shoreline. From the Sea Caves to Kavos hill the trail passes through a rocky area with sparse halophytic vegetation. It then follows a course due north, through low shrubby vegetation. Passing through an area of fields planted with cereals ­ and through an area of low bushes ­ the trail reaches a natural bridge called ‘Kamara tou Koraka’ and ends up at Agioi Anargyroi Church. The church is built over a sea cave, where it is believed that saints (known as Agioi Anargyroi) lived as ascetics. The trail connects to the Konnoi - Agioi Anargyroi Trail, and to the Aphrodite Trail. About 200 metres to the west of the end of trail, there is a picnic site with drinking water.

Flora: While hiking you can study the plants: prickly burnet (Sarcopoterium spinosum), wild thyme (Thymus capitatus), rock samphires (Crithmum maritimum), lentisk (Pistacia lentiscus), wild olive (Olea europaea).
