Tripiti - Leprias - Katarti


Trail Tripiti - Katarti
(1 Vote)

The course starts from the beautiful beach of Tripiti formed at the exit of the the gorge of Agios Savvas and at the end of the dirt tracks starting from Vasiliki or Lendas. It runs along the wild coastline and ends at the secluded beach Katarti after about 1:10.

Initially we head east from Tripiti and ascend at Kalokambos, a large flat area full of thymes, while walking alongside the deep blue sea. Along the way we see several rocky beaches below us and shortly after the halfway we meet a natural big hole in the ground. From here we can go down (steep descent) and find ourselves on the beach Leprias.

If we keep walking east from the hole we meet the great landslide over Leprias beach. While it seems dangerous and unstable, with a little attention we can cross it and find ourselves above the beach of Katarti. We can also by pass it if we ascend to the ridge a bit higher. From there we descend to the bed of the small canyon that leads to the beautiful beach.
