The Monemvasia municipality boasts two of the best rock-climbing areas in Greece. The most well-known and best developed is Cape Maleas - Zobolo, at Aghios Nikolaos near Neapoli. It provides a number of alternative climbing sectors, some in full sun, some in shade, and is close to a number of excellent beaches, important historical and natural sights and some of the best hiking routes in the country.
Further north, at Kyparissi, is a climber’s paradise in a rugged landscape. This climbing area, with limitless possibilities for development, is dominated by the forested slopes of Mt. Parnon that drop suddenly into the Myrtoon Sea, providing climbers with stunning views.
