Other Site Characteristics

The site is located at the NW part of Crete, (about 20 Km from Chania), and comprises Rodopos peninsula and the coastal area from Kolympari to Platanias. The marine part of the site is delimited by the depth curve of 50 m and is characterised by the presence of posidonia beds. The terrestrial part is characterised by: 1) Vegetated sea cliffs, Aegean cliffs, chasms, screes and sink holes. 2) Phrygana affected by grazing. 3) Local Pistacia lentiscus thickets in a good condition. 4) Areas cultivated with vineyards. 5) Locally restricted intensive building activities. NOTES5331 is used to describe thickets of Euphorbia dendroides of macaronisia origin.The coastal part of the site includes a sandy beach from Kolympari to Platanias and the marine area up to the isobath of 50m.

4.2 Quality and importance

The quality and the importance of "Rodopos" site is indicated by the following characteristics: 1) The archaeological site of Diktynaio in the northern area of the peninsula and the absence of a road in a good condition after the village Rodopos, act as a barrier for extensive human activities. 2) In the area of Ravdoucha mammal subfossils have been found. 3) The site as a whole is very important for the avifauna of Crete (CORINE, MEDSPA) because of its position and its geomorphology (important to cliff nesting birds - important migration route for harriers and herons). 4) The coastal area from Kolympari to Platanias is one of the most important places for the reproduction of Caretta caretta in Crete. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D: Malcolmia flexuosa ssp. Naxensis is endemic to the Aegean region and Anatolia. The beach is a nesting ground for Caretta caretta and the marine area is used by reproductive sea turtles for mating and resting between succesive nestings (inter-nesting area).
