Trail Detailed Description

After Sfinari (1), we move away from the sea, still following the paved road. We head southeast towards the mainland, passing through shrub-covered hills.

After walking for 2 km, we reach the almost deserted village of Ano Sfinari (2), whose residents built the coastal settlement on the shore of the Sfinari bay.

The path then begins to go slightly uphill; after a 6 km walk we reach Kampos (3), the biggest of a cluster of settlements.

We then begin to descend slightly, coming across valleys with plane trees, as well as olive groves, on the hillsides. 

Having walked for 1,5 km from Kampos, we reach the small settlement of Plagia (4). From there, a downhill dirt road begins on our right, with a sign that reads: “To Elafonisi”; we ignore this and continue for another 4 km, until Keramoti (5).

3 km further away, we reach Amygdalokefali (6). From Kampos and up to this point, we have a distant view to the sea, to the west.

After Amygdalokefali, we lose visual contact with the sea and, heading east, we move further inland, until the small abandoned village of Simantiriana (7). Then, we pass through the Papadiana village (8) and finally we arrive at the village of Kefali (9).
