FOOTPATHS IN KEA
Keas’ footpaths are ideal for ambulatory routes. The island has 36km of footpaths, 65% of which are cobblestone. Following them, you will discover the island’s unique beauties. Most of them are dated since ancient times, from the 7th-6th BC, when there were established four independent town-states. These routes were the road system of the time and connected them.
Today, some of these footpaths have developed tourist and are ideal for long walks. Along the road, are signs showing the way.

Routes you can follow are:
1) Ioulida – Leon – Dosonari – Diaselli – Otzias (length: 5.100m).
2) Ioulida – Agios Konstantinos – Mylopotamos – Flea – Korissia (length: 3.100m).
3) Ioulida – Mesaria – Prophet Elia – Astra – Ellinika – Agios Simeon – Karthea (length: 11.850m.).
4) Moni Episkopis – Sotira – Parameria – Tria Maderika – Sikamia (length: 4.450m.).
5) Katomeria – Kalodouka – Pigi Vathipotamou (length: 3.150m.).
6) Stavroudaki – Pigi Vathipotamou – Karthea (length: 2.300m.).
7) Harvouna – Agios Taxiarhis – Pigadaki – Kaliskia – Karthea (length: 1.700m.)
Each one of these routes has historic-archaeological interest. You will have the chance to know part of the rich flora. Walking in the paths passing through green forests, you’ll be impressed by the age-long trees that offer their shadow and by the wild flowers in growing in the rocks.
Apart from natural beauties, you will have the chance to see part of the island’s cultural inheritance. Paths lead to the remains of ancient cities and help those having imagination to travel in the past and admire it with awe.
