The coastal pine forest (one of the few remaining in the Mediterranean) is located between the wetland and the sea, on a sandy area with dunes and is one of the three pine forests in Greece. The stone pines or umbrella pines (Pinus pinea) with the characteristic crown-like umbrella, spread mainly on the west of the forest, while to the east, it coexists with aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis), which gradually replace it.

The forest covers area of about 3.5Km on a sandy strip about 400m wide and presents a lowland character. The slopes are smooth, 0-2%, and only the sandy coastal zone presents a higher inclination towards the sea.
