Astrakiano-Kounaviano gorge is located in the south east of the municipality. An especially valuable geological formation is located in a region which combines a beautiful landscape with components of our cultural and historical heritage.
It is an ideal location for the development of an alternative form of tourism that will match the main stream tourism which has been developed in Karteros sea sort.
It is for this reason that the municipality of Nea Alikarnassos, in collaboration with the municipalities of Episkopi and Kazantzaki, has undertaken to develop paths so Astrakiano-Kounaviano gorge becomes accessible to the tourists and citizens alike.
It is worth noting that although a great number of archaeological artefacts have been unearthed in various locations of the municipality, including Byzantine monuments found in the gorge, neither a museum nor an organized space for display exists so far in the municipality.
