The previously so beautiful hiking route around the island has been partially destroyed by the new road. But it is still practicable, you're only obliged to the road here and there, parts of the hike is still along the old donkey paths.

The most interesting hiking route begins in Stavros and you first hike to Kalotaritissa in the north, then continue south to Mersini and Livadia beach, and then on to Kedros beach, and finally ends in Stavros.

The hike is easy and there is no risk of getting lost. (Parts of the route is along the road.)

The best hiking map of Donoussa is published by the Greek cartographic company Terrain maps, also known as Skai Maps. The scale is 1:25,000 and the map is available for purchase on the Donoussa. The map describes the best hiking routes in the Small Cyclades: Donoussa, Iraklia, Koufonissi and Schinoussa.

I can also recommend the hiking book Amorgos, Naxos, Paros, Eastern & Northern Cyclades by Dieter Graf. The book describes many hiking routes in the area. The book could possibly be available for purchase on Donoussa, otherwise you will find it on larger islands, or you can buy it on internet.

If you hike you can reach small, beautiful beaches.
