This short walk of 1 hour is nice in early morning or late afternoon to stretch your legs. You descend from Akrotiri via a steep foot path to the small beach on the caldera side at Balos Bay. There you find a tavern and beach sports. Via the pebbled beach and huge rocks you walk along the caldera until the picturesque chapel of Agios Nikolaos. Here starts the footpath (sometimes cobbled) zigzagging up the caldera until you come back to Akrotiri. Via the old Kastro of Akrotiri you return to the starting point.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
