If you're not an experienced and avid hiker, my advice is to take a pleasure boat ($5 Euro) from Sougia to Lissos and walk back. It is a nice spot to swim and explore the ruins, but the hike is harder--all the hikes in Greece...More

After a delicious lunch at Sougia we decided to walk to Lissos. It's an energetic hike requiring good strong footwear with several accents and descents until you reach the beach just below Lissos. You can get the boat back but we wanted to walk back...More

You can hike in (3 miles or so) or take a fishing boat from Sougia. Either way, do it! The hike is up through a stunning gorge, across the top of cliffs and down the other side. The trail is very well marked. The hike...More

We chose to walk here &back from Sougia.You can take the option of visiting by boat as a single or even return trip if the idea of walking both ways does not appeal. The path is initially shady in the trees &clearly marked.Plenty of directions...More
