It should be noted that there isn’t any clear path to the cave of Pelekita and the only way to get it correctly is to follow the red signs on the rocks and stones, every 5-10 meters.

From the top of Skopeli we have wonderful views across the south east, particularly towards the bay of Kato Zakros.

The route Skopeli - Cave Pelekita is much easier, without any particular problems. From the cave there is a path that will take us back after an hour in Kato Zakros.
