At the exit of the Agia Paraskevi Gorge, a sandy beach forms. Pachia Ammos is surrounded by the biggest carob tree forest in Europe. It is accessible via a short dirt road from the settlement. This is where the endangered Caretta caretta turtle nests.
West of this beach and downhill from the carob tree forest, the Ornios area features a number of underwater caves, like Glykys Kolympos (near it is a freshwater spring). Between Ornio and Glykys Kolympos is a large marine cave with a very small opening on the surface level and a very impressive clearance once entered. This cave can also be reached through the water, from an underwater hole leading to the same spot.
