Old Trikeri, is such a small island that is barely seen on the maps.
It is small, beautiful, and heavenly. It is the islet of Paleo Trikeri in the Pagasetic Gulf off the end of the Pelion Peninsula.
The island’s infrastructure consists of only hiking trails on little narrow lanes.
There are no actual roads for cars and motor vehicles to be found and the only accessible way to get to Trikeri is by boat. It is a true paradise for those who love noiselessly and car-free places.
Due to its tiny size, the island is considered negligible.
There are around 50 perhaps fewer permanent residents that live there as it does not exceed 2.5 square kilometers.
Two hours is enough to walk and see the whole island. Luxury and amenities of five-star hotels are nowhere to be found as there are only hostels on the island.
It is such a wonderful place for its amazing natural scenery, beaches, and most importantly for its absolute privacy.
The quietness that summer nights can only be disturbed by children playing around or songs of people who are having fun on land or at sea.
Although cicadas can get annoying for its loud “singing”, just think that they are trying to remind you that you are living in summer paradise.
On this wonderful dot of earth, the color that dominates is the green of the olive tree, since its olive grove is unique and at the top of the rudimentary mountain,
just 100 meters the highest peak, is the monastery of Evangelistria, which began to be built in 1825 and experienced days of glory in the maritime past of the place when the icon of Panagia was found at the root of an olive tree.
From the well-preserved monastery, which can be accommodated in its wonderful cells, for a minimum price, it has the opportunity to look out for the Aegean, Evia, Pagasitikos, and the whole of Pelion.
After the civil war, the same monastery hosted thousands of exiled women on its premises, writing a different story.
In recent years, Paleo Trikeri a great fishing place and has been transformed into a favorite spot to those who love the adventure of the sea. It attracts “boaters” and sailors who want to taste fresh Greek fish.
