The experience of hiking
Folegandros with its impressive style and its special personality, imposes to its guest a unique way to feel its magic. In such a beautiful island, in order to enjoy some of its hidden virtues, you must dedicate time to walk in some unique locations.
In each hiking you can gaze into the sea and the great view. You can feel the enchanting calmness that the virgin landscape offers you with aromas like the one of thyme and of wild sage that intrigue your senses.
Aspropounda’s light house (south- south west)
Have the same feelings as the lighthouse keepers used to have from its creation in 1919 until 1986 when they handed it in to the sun. The all white light house, which is in conspicuous location, controls the Crete sea and the route to Milos giving valuable information to travelers.
Livadaki beach (south-south west)
At the same path to the lighthouse, which starts from the end of Ano Meria, exactly below the lighthouse is the Livadaki beach. Words cannot describe it. Just be there at sunset.
Ambeli beach (west-south west)
Go through the old cobbled path which leads to Ag. Panteleimonas church first and continue until the beach. This path is also followed by visitors who want to go to Ag. Panteleimonas fair on 27th of July. Have a rest at the church and feel the magic. An impressive route especially at sunset.
Katergo beach (south end)
Walk until the southest end of the island, be impressed by the endless horizon and the Cretan sea. A magical path that goes through Livadi’s medieval agricultural settlement, through old olive press and a thyme forest.
Vorina beach (north)
There used to produce and make the paving stone that it’s on the cobbled path of Chora. Villagers used to transfer it little by little with their donkeys. The path is right below the old windmills. This unique stone enchants you when you see it at Chora but also when you see this emerald green at the bottom of Vorina beach.
Fira beach (south)
Follow the old path that leads to Fira. A small oasis with shallow blue water that with Ambeli beach are the only ones on the island that have light until sunset.
Ag. Nikolaos beach (south)
A beautiful path that starts from the cosmopolitan beach Agali and leads you by the sea to the beach of Ag. Nikolaos. Emerald waters and the incredible view of Vathy bay. So mixed emotions. Far from the civilization lights, without electricity, without a road. The beach is pure magic.
