Kavi (or Iliga) Gorge

We can start the hike at the mountain village of Anopoli along the rural road which leads towards Lefka Ori and takes you close to the highest peak at an altitude of 2,000 meters. After walking for 1 ½ hours, the road branches off to the right and leads to the Byzantine church of the Holy Cross which has beautiful frescoes. It is possible to travel up to this point by motor vehicle. The hike from here takes about three hours up to the exit on to the paved road at a distance of one kilometer from Chora Sfakion in the direction of Anopoli. A few meters below is the fabulous, sparkling clean beach of Iligas where you can enjoy a swim in the Libyan Sea and have snacks at the quaint little tavernas. It is also possible to overnight here.
