Chorio - Pedi - Aghia Marina - Chorio Symi Walk.

This walk is fairly easy, has the benefit of tavernas at Pedi, Ag. Nikolaos and Aghia Marina Beaches and ends up back at Chorio by the derelict windmills.

Chorio Main Square - Symi From the cafe head down the Kali Strata and after a few metres turn right by Georgios taverna and follow the street and then take the next turning on the right (before reaching the Village Hotel) - this will bring you onto the main Pedi road. Turn left and follow the main road down towards Pedi. After passing the noisy diesel generators the road splits, take the right hand fork and continue on into Pedi's seafront. Turn right and follow the road round the harbour - going eventually through tables at the front of a taverna and then across a slipway. Continue on the (what is now) wide path alongside the sea - go through a gate (which is actually an old bed stead) and continue along the stoney shoreline.

Continue along this path as it undulates over the top of the hills and eventually brings you out above the beach at Ag. Nikolaos - walk down the sometimes steep steps to arrive at the beach. Return back to Pedi on the same path - on reaching the waterfront continue right round to the far side of the harbour. The road eventually ends by houses but here a very stoney path continues up out of Pedi into the hills (this is well marked). The path passes between fences and goes over some very barren ground - which can be quite difficult underfoot because of the large stones.

The path swings slightly left as it climbs and then after a short unfenced area regains it's fence and swings right still going up - eventually you get a distant view of Ag. Nikolaos beach. The path eventually swings left again as it goes over the ridge and then down into Aghia Marina. Continue through the grounds of the taverna to the far side of the beach and go through a gate and then go left to climb out of the beach. Now simply stay on this path as it goes via a saddle in the hills and then continues via very barren ground - there are markers but not that easy to spot however the path is mostly fairly obvious to follow.

Keep going in the same basic direction and eventually swing left with the path as it goes up and over the hill tops - you soon get great views of Yialos harbour way below you. The path then starts to descend and eventually arrives at a series of derelict windmills some of which are being restored. On reaching the road go straight across and then go down the hill  to arrive at the Village Hotel - turn right to go back into the the Island's main Square.
