Great Cave, Nestos

The Great Cave, Xanthi

Description: A very impressive sector of Nestos, with extreme overhang in the cave, and relatively vertical walls on the left and right of the Cave. There are routes in the Cave and around it. The access is the same with Balcony, but you walk for 5 minutes more to the direction of the visible big Cave that you see.

Access: While driving from Kavala to Xanthi from the highway(Egnatia road) and approximately 35km from Kavala you will see an exit from the highway writing Thalassia(the exit is right before a tunel). Right after the exit, you meet the 1st crossroad where you turn left towards Kavala-Toxotes. (See the image). Keep driving for 2 more kilometers and you will

 

meet another crossroad where you turn left to Kavala instead of right which would drive you to Xanthi. Turning left is the old national road that will take you to Kavala. While turning left, you will cross the bridge of Nestos and 500meters after the bridge turn right to a sign writing Paradeisos. You make a 90 degrees turn to the right on the dirtroad! You don’t turn in order to get to the village. 200 meters on the dirtroad and you will see the signs of the climbing sectors Great Cave, Balcony. Follow the red painted path to the crag.
