Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Kastelli is the prominent little peninsula, directly above the sea as you leave Masouri and head north. The ruins of a Byzantine castle, Kasteli, still stand at the top of the hill. The crag is on the northwest side of the hill, an extensive area of steep and compact slabs of sharp grey limestone. To the south is the small white chapel and a great spot for a post-climb rest or swim.
Park on the left just around Kastelli Bend - good views of Dolphin Bay and Emborios. Scramble to was Kastelli then bear right to locate the climbing.
Walking Time: 7-10mins

|Nice crag close to the sea which faces in most directions so you can vary the sun or shade|
