The Georoute crosses many interesting geosites and is exceptionally pleasant, as it follows the coastline along its entire length. At Katsounaki beach, there are numerous geosites, including Katsounaki gorge, as well as endemic species of sand lilies or Sea Daffodils (Pancratium maritimum). Visitors can return to Kato Zakros either by the same path or from the road via Xerokambos.
