Lefkimmi Saltern

Until few years ago the area of the specific water biotope was used as salterns. This activity stopped for good in 1988. Since then different and various changes have been made. Even though the information available for the flora and vegetation of this place is little and it limits by the information about the vegetation in sandy beaches, the area has interesting flora and wide variety of vegetation. Not only flora but also the vegetation is characterized by the domination of some halophytic species such as Arthocnemum glaucum, A. fruticosum, Halocnemum strobilaceum, Scoenchus nigricans, Juncus subulatus, Salicornia europaea, Cakile maritima, Salsola kali etc.
