This is the 5th segment of the E4 European Path that starts at Chrisoskalitissa and ends at Agios Ioannis. The trail is paved until Elafonissos where it turns into the coastal path, which is difficult to discern. After reaching the trail there is a makeshift jetty and a small boat from Paleochora docks. After that continue for another 700 m, where you will arrive at one of the rare areas of that is forested with Cedar trees. The chapel of Agios Ioannis should be able to be seen from the entire beach section of the trail and is where this trail ends.
