Alonissos Patitiri Circular Walk.

Alonissos Greece walk from Patitiri to Megha Nero, Aghi Anarghiri, Meghali Amos before returning to Patitiri.

With your back to the sea there are two main roads which go inland from Patitiri harbour - take the road on the right where the taxis and buses congregate. Follow this uphill out of the town, stay left at the first main road junction and then go right at the next road junction. Shortly along this road splits - (the left fork goes to Chora) - take the right fork which is the main road heading to Steni Vala and the top of the island.
Patitiri Town - Greek Island of Alonissos. Alonissos Greece - Patitiri Town Continue along the main road - passing a petrol station and then the Votsi turn - until you come to a tarmac road on the left. Follow this tarmac road - after a short distance take a track going off to the left which will bring you to the Megha Nero Springs. Watch out here because there are lots of flying bugs around including many wasps - we passed it quite quickly for that reason without even trying to get a photo. From the springs the path bears right and rejoins the now gravelly tarmac road. Turn left and ignore the next small track on the left and then at a main track junction turn left (there is a small farm on the corner) on the track which goes to Tsoukalia.
Tsoukalia, Alonissos - Greece. Alonissos Greece walking track However about a third of a kilometre along the track splits - take the right hand fork and follow this down through pine forests - this is in fact Path 5 but there are not many markers. Stay on this main track - ignore a small cross track - then look out for a small track on the left which on the map shows as going to Aghios Andreas. There is not actually very much of this church left - in fact it is simply a pile of stones - but if you walk on through the trees a little way you do get good views of the coastline.
Return back to the main track and turn left and continue along until the track ends at a house (but a few 100 metres before this have a look at a very old ruined dry spring buried in the undergrowth on the right). Pass the house and the track now becomes a narrow path which follows the cliff edge - when the path splits take the left fork to walk down to the two churches of Aghi Anarghiri. Continue on the path as it goes in front of both churches and then back into woodlands - the path goes down to arrive by a house just above the beach at Tourkeneri. Go past the front of the house on the track - passing the small beach - and continue on up into the woods to eventually reach a T-junction. Turn right and just by a concrete spring on the left lookout for a red marker which marks a narrow path heading on up into the woods.

Follow this path until it reaches a main dirt road then turn left and continue along to the next junction, go left again and follow this for .7 of a kilometre; to arrive at a small track on a sharp bend which goes off to the left. Take this really nice track as it winds down through the valley to eventually end just in front of a gate - just before the gate a footpath leads off on the right - crosses scrubland and some trees - passes a small beach on the left and then drops down by a wall. Keep straight on here going along the coast to arrive at Meghali Amos beach - a great beach with beautiful clear water but sometimes really busy - one time there were at least 2 other people on it. Return to the track by the gate, turn left and after a few metres turn right up a footpath which winds through olive groves and then along the low cliffs to reach a dirt track (by a brocken fence).

Take this path which goes through pine trees and then olive groves - look out for a very small path on the left which takes you down to the house and track near the old ruined spring. Turn left and follow the original route back to Patitiri.
