The beautiful "Aesthetic Forest" of Pefkias is located in the eastern part of the city of Xylokastro. It dates back to more than 300 years ago and it is 2,000 m. long. It is an ideal place for hiking, jogging or simply enjoying the landscape and the multitude of flowers. You will see Pefkias Beach after you have crossed the forest. There are beach bars with sun umbrellas and sun loungers for those who like the crowd and the sound of music but there is also a non-organized side which is not that populated for those who would like to enjoy some peace and quiet.
