Elia Beach – Agios Pavlos – Petros rock – Elia
Walking time: 5 hours
Elevation: 298 m
This hike is quite an easy route which gives you a beautiful view over the bay.
Heading east you first reach the church of St. Paul where legend has it he passed through here on his way to Rome. As he was thirsty, he said a prayer, hit the ground with his staff, and water began bubble forth and has never stopped.
Then you continue up the mountain with the scent of honey from the beehives filling your nose, you reach Peter’s rock, the highest point on the ridge. From here you head back to Elia Beach.
