Pelekita cave

 

Located north east of the small village of Kato Zakros between Karoumes and Kato Zakros beach. The cave can be reached by traveling one hour from Kato Zakros, or from the beach of the village by using mechanized boats and then making an ascent. The height at the entrance is 105m. The whole area is commonly known as Pelekita, which name is derived from the quarry, which is below the cave, close to the sea, from which stones have been extracted. The other name "Sykias Spilios" was given to the cave because of the location of a large fig tree at the entrance. Under the cave one can see the sea as if viewing it from a plane.

 

 

 
See the map
You will see wonderful shapes of stalactites along the path in the cave. Here you need to pay attention, because there are some difficult places to pass until you reach the end!
 
 
 
The entrance of the cave. The fig tree, which is just at the opening, is a prominent point of the cave
We suggest you should have two penlights in case that one of them get damaged
The route from Kato Zakros to the cave has a fantastic view to the sea
