The villages of Katakoilos and Ano Katakoilos, both drowning in greenery and coolness due to the continual abundance of water here, also offer the hiker a chance of refreshment at their tavernas. This road continues to the village of Remata, which is also blessed by a small river and here begins the old footpath wich leads to the beach of Lefka, an unforgettable route.
