Description: On the northwest side of Alonissos, 3.5 kms from Patitiri, lies the beach of Tsoukalia, one of several designated archaeological sites on the island. The two small chapels of Agii Anargirii are situated on a cliff at the edge of the pine forest and are approached by one of the prettiest forest trails on the island. This walk will take you to some of the most secluded and peaceful spots on the island. The walk is on established paths and is therefore relatively easy and a good introductory walk.

All walks start at 09.30 from the port police cabin in the centre of Patitiri harbour.
