SOME LOCAL WALKS
Slightly undulating "there and back" walk using
unsurfaced tracks along the edge of the beach and later through quiet olive
groves. Nice colourful views of the sea through the trees.
Time needed: 1
and a half hours to 2 hours.
GENERAL NOTENo liability will
be accepted for the accuracy of these notes.This is a rural area and
circumstances may change. Footpaths may become overgrown or otherwise difficult
to negotiate and some new tracks into private fields may appear. (Advice of any
changes will be welcomed.)

calling at Fisherman's Cabin a torch is advisable for the return
START: : Leave Agios Georgios from the end of the
Pagi road near the Alkyon Beach Hotel walking south along the beachside
track heading for the end of the visible part of Agios Georgios beach.
NOTE: Most years winter storms erode
the track just past here and cause landslides which may make the track
impassable in early May until the Council repair it, although it is usually
possible for walkers to negotiate the damaged area.
You will pass several houses until eventually the track
swings left away from the beach up a short hill (between the the 2 distant
buildings on the photograph). To your right here is the entrance to another
Go straight on, ignoring a wide track joining on your
left, and enter a peaceful olive grove of mature trees which are a welcome
relief from the heat of the sun on the hottest days.
Continue along this undulating track through the olive
groves roughly parallel to the sea. You will see several hand painted signs to
Fisherman's Cabin encouraging the faint hearted to continue.
Eventually the winding track arrives at the entrance
notice board for Fisherman's Cabin,
a unique fish restaurant. (Note: If intending to eat
there, note that the Restaurant may not open until 2 p.m on weekdays
(1.30 pm Saturday / Sunday) so check locally BEFORE you set
RETURN by retracing your steps being careful to
stay parallel to the sea and not to take one of the side tracks which
you never noticed on the way there. (These are dead ends and whatever happens
you should not get lost, only a bit more tired.)
