ITINERARY

Every Stop a Unique Experience

A hike from one beach to another

A hike from one beach to another

We start to follow an off-the-road trail for about 1 km which will lead you to a fence. After opening the fence and crossing, we have to make sure you have closed it (otherwise the sheep will start leaving!). You will see in front of you the first blue pole which marks the start of the hike trail. The whole hike is marked by blue poles, blue arrows and blue marks on the rocks ... So we will just follow these blue guides.

After about 20 minutes of walking, we'll stop to catch a breath and look behind; you will see the beautiful Falassarna, with its crystal clear water and the great Prophet Elias (Manna) which overlooks the region.

As you walk, you will see and smell the wild thyme, chamomile, thrimpa, stamnagathi, agroagginara, wild olive trees (many of which are extremely old) and many other herbs and plants - gifts of nature to man!!!

When walking, sometimes up and sometimes down, you will always have a breathtaking view of the islands of Pontikos, Kithira, Antikithira and the Tigani. Fortunately, the relaxing sound of the waves crashing against the cliff will help you free yourself from thoughts. At the end, you will be rewarded with the magnificent view of Grambousa and Balos beach, which will take your breath away and make you forget everything!

We stay there for a swim in the blue lagoon of Balos beach and relax while waiting for the boat to return us to the port of Kissamos.
