Another well-trodden path in the area that begins at the coastal church of Aghia Marina. After a 3,425 m walk east on an unsurfaced road, the route continues along a coastal path for another 2,250 m to the convent of Aghia Irini and 250 m further on, the Byzantine chapel of Aghios Andreas on Cape Maleas.

A diversion leads to the hermitage of Aghios Thomas. A spectacular route along a rugged coastline to a precipitous cape with views of passing ships.
