Road surface: 11% asphalt, 89% trail

Route type: Takes you through vineyards, swimming coves, and did I say vineyards?
Overview: Starting at the Porto Carras resort in Neos Marmaras, you head up into the vineyards of this massive estate. The whole route from the sea to the peak is lined by a variety of vines, all listed with their sort. Part of the route is on gravel trails, but once you are on top of Melitonas (494 meters) you will get a stunning view. You now descend to the coast through the vineyards and return through the Porto Carras territory back to the resort. On the way you will pass about 30 sandy coves. Stop for a dip.
