From Neapolis one can hike up the mountain on marked trails to the villages of Mesochori, Faraklo, the church and spring at Paradisi, and beyond. Alternatively, one can hike west along the coast towards Pavlopetri and  Pounda Beach, past the Natura 2000-designated lagoon where many species of birds nest, or east along the coast all the way to Cape Maleas.

Be sure to take plenty of water and snacks, as there are few places to buy food along the way.
