Well worth a visit on your way to Elafonisi - much easier to park. It is situated in an elevated position by the see. Perhaps there is not as much to see as some other monasteries, but it is a beautiful place.

Stop by this for the incredible view of the sea and the whitewashed walls against the background. Small and interesting monastery with typical icons and such inside.

Go and visit this lovely little monastery and get great views as well over the Akrotiri peninsular. The chapel is often in use and is very simple in design.

An interesting monastery with views of the sea and mountains. A church, a chapel and two small museums to visit. It took about half an hour to see everything but it was only 2 euros entrance fee. Worth a look.
