The coastal areas around Kalloni Gulf are within an environmental system of torrents (Mylopotamos, Tsikneas), marshes (Skala Kallonis, Parakila), olive groves, woods and salt-pits (Kalloni, Polichnitos) which provide shelter for the reproduction of rare species of birds. Of the total number of birds recorded, 66 are migratory. This fact has helped bird-watching tourism to start flourishing in the island. Some of the species are: pink flamingos, gray herons, avocets, etc.
