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.
