The slopes surrounding the river banks at the area of the Narrows of Nestos are covered by scarce forests of oak (Quercus pubescens subsp. anatolica) and a variety of other species of typical Mediterranean plants (Quercus coccifera, Juniperus excelsa, Juniperus oxycedrus subsp. oxycedrus, Celtis australis, Cercis siliquastrum, Arbutus adrachne, Fraxinus ornus, Olea europaea subsp. oleaster, Phillyrea latifolia).

Between the two aforementioned zones one can find a different variety of plants, like Humulus lupulus, Clematis vitalba, Hedera helix, Tamus communis, Calystegia sylvatica, etc.
