At the northern tip of the island (to the northeast) near the cape of Kalotaritissa, a two-kilometer trail will lead us to a half-ruined lighthouse and an extraordinarily beautiful landscape with vertical cliffs that fall into the sea from a height of 150 meters. In front of us is the endless blue of the Aegean. In our opinion, this is the most beautiful part of the Donoussa trails, and it is worth the effort to hike here. Indeed, the more complete journey is a tour of the peninsula, passing the beach of Trypiti, moving along the shoreline with Skoulonisi on your right, and then ascending slowly to the lighthouse in the north. From there you can return by following the inner route that moves diagonally to the southeast on the peninsula, passes above Trypiti, and meets the path toward Kalotaritissa somewhere in the middle. Total tour, about 3,600 meters, maximum height difference of 150 meters, time 90 minutes.
