KASOS ENVIRONMENTAL SIGHTS
Ellinokamara Cave lies southwest of Aghia Marina 15 minutes by foot along a path. In front of it is a small valley, Paradisi, with olive trees and fields reaching down to the sea. The cave was used as a shelter by locals during times of pirate attacks. Its entrance - 30 meters wide and 10 meters high - had been blocked off during antiquity by a stone wall which has two openings.
Pottery from various periods was found here including the Mycenean period. It seems it was a place of worship from the Mycenean to the Hellenistic period.
Selai Cave with its impressive stalactites is located in the Aghia Marina area some 2 km southwest of the path.
It is 30 m deep and 8 m high.
