The Park KaVo gkreko is located in the Eastern part of the famous Cape Greco (Ayia NAPA) and covers an area of over 385 hectares.

The Park is famous for its juniper groves and beautiful views of the sea, which is in that part of the island's stunning turquoise color. This Cape is perfect for diving, fishing and spearfishing in the sea off the coast of eels and octopus, fish-needle, and sea bass.
