Trail Detailed Description

Departing from Agia Roumeli (1), we bypass the heliport on its north side. Having passed through a clump of pine trees by a stream bed, we move towards itsestuary, from where we cross to its eastern bank.

 In winter and spring, when the river is flooded, we go north and come to a small bridge, by which we cross to the opposite bank. 

The path is clear and it goes parallel to the sea, just above the beach that stretches out for about 2 km, until the outlet of Eligias gorge (2).

After the gorge, the coast is mostly rocky, so we walk a little higher up, in a landscape of pines and sparse bush vegetation, for approximately 1,5 km, until the Byzantine chapel of Agios Pavlos (3), on a beautiful beach which has the same name.
