This path is clearly signed and very beautiful, some parts directly situated on the coast, some parts in the mountain pastures in about 800 to 1000m above sea level.




Althoug the landscape is steep, cycling is possible, if you are a little bit trained. There are no special ways for cycling, but even on the main road to Kas along the sea there is not so many traffic. And the other ways, in Esen Valley or up the mountains are with very low traffic, about one car in a quarter of an hour. There is a mountanbike and an E-Bike in the garage of Villa Frida, it is possible to rent. There also some shops in town renting mountain bikes.
