Trail Detailed Description

1 km after leaving the village of Kefali, we come to a turn-off (1) to the right, which leads to Chryssoskalitissa. The road is now downhill; after2,5 km we arrive at Vathi (2) and after another 1,5 km we cross the small settlement of Plokamiana (3). We follow the west bank of the stream in the valley of Vathi and then walk downhill for 4 km, until we reach the beach of Stomio (4).

3 km after Stomio, we reach the sparsely built settlement of Chryssoskalitissa (5) at a spot where there is a sign that reads: “To Elafonissi”.

From this point, to visit the Chryssoskalitissa Monastery, we continue to the right for 500 m, until we reach the rocky hill on which it stands.

For those who wish to travel to Chryssoskalitissa from Chania or Kissamos, there is a daily bus service.
