No matter where you are on the island, you will always be close enough (5 km. approximately) to the main town. The island is ideal for trekking excursions, and mountain biking. It is advised to put on a hat for the sun (natural shades are almost non-existent here) and keep bottled water with you at all times. There are many hiking trails on the island but two of them stand out:
- The 900 meters footpath that connects the Church of Assumption (Kato Koimisi) with the Temple of Assumption (Ano Koimisi). It is a cobblestoned hiking trail and you will need approximately 15 minutes to go from one place to the other.
- The 3.5 km. long footpath that starts from Chora (the main town of the island) and goes to the beautiful beaches of Tourkomnima and Monodentri.
