The watermill near Aghios Theologos

This watermill embedded in the rock just beneath the church of Aghios Theologos is in relatively good condition. Finding it might be a little tricky if you do not know where to go...


The picturesque little village of Haihoutes or at least whatever remains of it is situated on the road from the Asclepeion towards Zia just before reaching Assomatos. The village is abandoned for the most part although a very popular taverna/mezedopoleio has managed to rekindle a certain interest in the area. The owners of the taverna have also created a little museum and you can also visit the church of Aghios Dimitrios.

Coal mine shafts in the Miniera area

These are a couple of deserted coal mine shafts that remain relatively intact in the Miniera region in the Dikaios area on the island of Kos in Greece. They are situated in a field some 300-400 meters after the Triantafylopoulos winery on the road that links Lagoudi to the main road.

The Gournia Spring

Nestled under a rock in a relatively remote part of Kefalos, just off a dirt road, lies the beautiful Gournia spring. It's quite an unexpected find in a place where you would least expect an abundance of fresh water...

The Kata Beach in Kefalos, near Aghios Theologos, is remote and stunningly beautiful. The shipwreck at the end of the beach is certainly one of those defining landmarks that make this place so remarkable and unique
