River Karkotis Access Point
Just a few metres away from the Mylos tis Rodous (Rodous Mill), one can follow a small path that was created by the Community of Galata, which leads along the mouth of the Karkotis river. The area was included in the Natura 2000 network under the CY2000012 code under European Directive 92/43 / EEC (i) and is a special area of conservation. The Karkotis river, which eventually expands to Morphou Bay, is one of the few rivers in Cyprus with a continuous annual flow, a fact that makes for the creation of a wide variety of natural habitats, as well as crops and hence a rich rural landscape.
Here, one can also see some of the trout that escaped from nearby fish farms. The aquaculture of Iridescent Freshwater Trout is one of the characteristics of the Solea region that counts most freshwater aquaculture enterprises in Cyprus, due to the Klario river, which is one of the few rivers in Cyprus with a continuous flow throughout year.
