Paros Greece Coastal Walks.
A pleasant Walk on Paros Greece along the coast from Tripiti to Pounda (port) This Paros coastal walk is again quite easy as far as gradient is concerned but in places the paths were extremely rocky underfoot so we were glad we had decent
boots. The 16km walk starts off from the main road near Tripiti - there are no buses serving this location so you will need to get a taxi from Parikia to the start of
the walk unless you can scrounge a lift from someone. You need to get the taxi to drop you off by the track which leaves the main road and goes to Tripiti Beach. The only certainty of finding refreshments along this walk is at
Aliki - there do appear to be several other "taverna looking" buildings along the way but none were open when we did this walk in early June - far to early perhaps for the main holiday season.
The track forks almost immediately - go on the right fork and just follow this until it ends where it then changes to a walled footpath which descends on down to
Tripiti Beach. This is a nice little beach of sand and shingle but there is very little shade and no facilities at all. On reaching the beach go left - you have to climb up a slope to a gate.
Just after passing Voutakos small fishing harbour leave the road by going ahead on the coastal path - you passing several small beaches and eventually arrive at a track.
Go straight ahead on the track with soon passes by Aghios Nikolas church. From here simply follow the sandy track as it goes almost straight along the coast - there
is quite a lot of beach area along here as well as wide sandy areas. As you approach Pounda you pass by several Wind Surfing centres before finally reaching the tiny ferry port of Pounda and it's bus stop.
