The first climbing field of Astypalaia was constructed recently. It is located only 20 minutes away from the capital by car at a spot called Ftera, down an easy dirt road. Its limestone rocks are stable. The rough terrain divides the field into two separate tracks. 20 routes have been created on them, all equipped with stainless M10 plugs and relays.
The Negros cave, whose name is associated with legends about pirates and their treasures, is located over the beach in Vatses. The cave is not far from the coast. However, the trail from the coast to the opening of the cave is difficult for beginners.
Drakospilia (the cave of the Dragon) is a two-hour walk from Vathi. The trail is difficult and that makes it suitable for experienced hikers.
