From Taxiathis in Ano Meria, the route initially heads west, along the provincial road. After a crossroads with a footpath leading south-west to Livadaki, it heads west towards Agios Panteleimonas along a paved footpath, leading to a location of rare beauty. After Agios Panteleimonas, the footpath is divided into two branches, leading to Ampeli bay. The southern branch, which is initially smooth, later descends steeply towards the picturesque beach. By contrast, the northern branch is steep to start with, but then crosses a pretty gorge, with unusual vegetation by the island’s standards and with traditional cultivation methods (skales).
