3 km. from the property is the Natural History Museum which hosts local fossils, rocks, plants and stuffed birds. The olive groves that surround the village not only give the visitor the opportunity to hike and enjoy the nature but also to get to know historic monuments, such as the “Gateluzikos Paliopyrgos” and the remnants of the medieval settlements of Nigida.
The area is also one of the unique wetland habitats on the island. More than 100 species of birds have been recorded. For biologists and amateur observers and birdwatchers it seems to be as a live natural history museum. Observing is possible all year long, especially during spring that the bird attendance is higher. The fauna and flora of the area are also rich and unique.
Just 8 km. from Vatera you can visit the Polichnitos Thermal Springs. Spa waters spout from numerous springs passing through primary and secondary volcanic porous rock. Water temperatures range between 67°C and 92°C (bath temperatures range between 40°C and 41,5°C in baths) enriched with natural radon irradiation in the range of 15 – 25 MACHE units and are considered to be of the warmest springs in Europe. They are rich in sodium chloride and comparable to the Wiesbaden Thermal Springs in Germany. The baths and pools are housed in a series of low constructions on the right, built under tall eucalyptus trees. These are the old buildings, which have been operating for numerous years and are now renovated to fit modern needs and include both old and new water channels. The springs’ free and steaming hot waters, as a result of thermophilic animalcules (algae) growing in it, on its way down gives the floor a beautiful red color.
