The gorge of Kotsyfos (or Kotsifos) is an impressive gorge and starts from the village of Kanevos and ends at Plakias village. The total length of the gorge is 1,800 meters and the height of its vertical sides reaches 600 meters.

Walk through the gorge with the tall, vertiginously imposing rocks and the narrow asphalt road and you will be enchanted by the view. On the way you will find a small chapel of Agios Nikolaos, two waterfalls and a little lower in the depth of the gorge you will find the ruins of a traditional watermill and a small old stone bridge.
