Updates Discover Agia Galini... on Foot
It’s in the nature of walking guidebooks to be out of date almost as soon as they appear! Especially in Crete the landscape is changing all the time; footpaths are made into roads or are overgrown, houses are built, new fences are erected, etc. If you find any changes in the walks or think that the descriptions are not correct or clear, please let us know and send your advice to: firstname.lastname@example.org The changes will be added in future editions of the book. All our Books and updates for the walks you can find on our website www.discoveronfoot.com.
Here you find updates for our booklet Discover Agia Galini... on Foot. The updates are based upon experiences from other hikers but also by new information from us while checking the routes.
Edition 2014 and 2016!! (in the new edition of 2020 this changes have already been incorporated)
At Walk 3 people have mentioned that on page 20, column 2 second line that this fence is often closed with a lock! You can now turn left earlier!! Walk along the asphalt road for 430m until you see on your left a small dirt road going downhill towards an olive grove (there is a small sign “ Mega Cretan Theme Park”). Walk downhill towards the olive grove! In about 200 m keep right downhill towards a fence. On the right of the fence you arrive at a dirt road. Here turn left (you might have to open and close a stock fence). The track goes downhill and you find yourself walking through a lush, green valley, mostly along a dry riverbed. At some point the track is a bit difficult to find (you find cairns along the way). Follow this track all together for 2 km.
At walk 4 Due to the heavy winters the track above the beach (point number 1, page 23) is now in a very bad state! It is better to stay below and walk along the beach!
