Trek through forested valleys and the highest point of the island to reach the river, where you’ll enjoy a mild river trek, along the riverbank and inside the river to end up in an astonishing scenery, a magnificent waterfall which creates a natural river pool where you can swim. The adventure doesn’t stop here, as we continue our hike parallel to the slope that borders the long valley of Achla. With your local naturalist guide you will learn all about the rich flora, and from a narrow path you will pass to the opposite side crossing the beautiful old stone bridge.
The river is drowned by dense forest of plane trees and wrecks. The shady walk across the riverbed leads us to the beach. A virgin sandy beach with dunes and caves, where the estuary forms a small lagoon. This important area for the biodiversity of the island hosts migratory and other birds. Rest, swim, picnic.
