Acharvi Beach as an Alternative to southwest Coasts

  On the whole, Acharavi makes a descent alternative to the beaches in the southwest, and should also be considered by those looking for walking routes onto Mount Pantokrator. Signposted roads leaving the Aharavi main road for small mountain hamlets such as Agios Ayios Martinos and Lafki connect with well-signed routed to the mountain.

  Even a stroll from the backstreets of Acharavi will find you well up on the mountain's slopes in under an hour. The lower slopes around Acharavi offer some excellent walks through olive groves, where paths criss-cross between the trees in a pattern of labyrinthine complexity.

  As elsewhere in the region, however, the olive grove paths are these for a specific purpose, and will invariably bring you out to another road or village, although not always the one you might expect.
