    We stopped on the way to another nature park and donated: was peak heat (1:00 pm), but in the shade of pine trees was cool. Great place to take a walk among the trees, breathe clean air, filled with fragrance of pine needles and aromatic mountain herbs. Struck by the abundance of peacocks: there are just a huge number, some were with chickens (very similar to chicken), large males and females good-looking. The kids were more excited about the kittens and cats, where there is hardly more than a peacocks. There is a small pond with water turtles (some went down to the water and touch them). You can drive from two directions: from the Kefalos and by Anmahii. By Kefalos leaves a narrow dirt road on the left, just before a steep right turn, there is a small bent plate "Plaka Forest". On inspection of 1.5 hours is enough, but you can wander around and enjoy the place. Be sure to pick up a treat for kittens and peacocks (can feed almost with they all manual). Admission is free (as such, there is no rope fence only from machines on the side of the road).

    Peacocks, baby beacocks, cats, turtles are all living in peace. It is great chance to experience this and observe them in their natural environment.  more »

    Very nice to visit with family, lot of peacocks around wild in nature. Small forest area to walk around and see birds walk around, also lot of chicks. Free of charge, but no commercial facilities around (no cafe or toilets or anything). If moving around island with rental car, very nice place to visit. Visited at mid september 2016 afternoon and place was not much crowded, only about 5-6 other cars on parking place.
