Hike to a magical unknown beach in the south of the island accessible by hidden tracks through wild forests and Greek Macchia. Walk along the coast and experience absolutely stunning views to find a gem of a beach completely off the tourist track. The total walking time including beach sojourn is about 6 hours and will be managed through an easy to moderate rolling terrain at an altitude of about 270m in elevation. We follow an old path up the hill in the direction of Poros. The first 200m will be a little steep. Time for recreation will be found at an old hut and a wonderful sandy beach with fantastic views of the nearby islands.
Distance: Approx 12,5 km.
Duration: 5 – 6 hours including beach sojourn.
Stay: Hut, pirate guardhouse, Koutsoupia Beach
Profile: Moderate to difficult. No special experience is necessary for these tours but you should have sturdy, slip-resistant footwear, waterproof clothing for wet conditions and a good physical condition, being able to walk up to 6 hours a day. 3/5 of the way is in the shade.
The route from Poros in the direction of Sami with the same goal is simpler in profile, since the path is a little shorter and the rise runs not quite as steep.
Recommended items to bring: 1-2 litres of water, sun protection, swimwear, sun hat and a good mood. Transportation: Argostoli – Antisamos – Argostoli or Argostoli – Poros – Argostoli.
