If you Plaka village in a northerly direction you walk just before its first game dbocht on a paved road to the right, which you must take. Further on the road splits in three, we take the left road soaring. After 20 min strong climb to reach the top an asphalt road. Now go right and you follow a while, the road to the village Vrouhas leads. Just for a windmill ga your right asphalt road and follow you all the time in a northerly direction. You pass a small church and still hold a fork right (always walk in a northerly direction). You are walking through a windmill park in the distance you'll no doubt the small chapel of Agios Ioannis have seen. After a rest break at the church, you walk back in a southerly direction. Links drops a small, broad path in the direction of the coast. This take you. You will now return to Plaka all the time with a fantastic view over the beautiful Mirabello Gulf and the island of Spinalonga. You come back from the junction where we left for the rising road taken. So turn left and you're back to square one.
