Trikeri -Alogoporos
This is an asphalted path but worth walking on, as the route is amazing. Endless cedar forests will take you to the bluest of seas around the island of Palio Trikeri. It is only 4.5 km long where you find yourself at the beach of Alogoporos for a good swim. A sea taxi can take you to the island.

Trikeri-Kottes
A cobblestone pavement joins Trikeri with Kottes. The route takes you through olive groves that passes and old water wells. According to the myth, fairies used to live in these wells and the waters were enchanted. Young ladies who looked in there could foresee their fate regarding their future mate.
