Palaio Trikeri, for centuries the home of a small fishing community, with its
Byzantine Monastery dominating the island, now offers a unique opportunity to
visitors to taste the natural way of life on this virgin island. The island of
Trikeri, in the south of Pagasitic gulf and at the tip of the Magnesia peninsula,
is particularly beautiful and remains, architecturally at least, more or less
unchanged since the beginning of the century. It is not much more than a mile
across, and a less than a thirty minutes walk takes one across to the other side of
the island. With a population of fewer than 100, it is so little known that it
doesn’t even get a mention in most guidebooks. The island is free of any traffic
(no roads, no cars) and transport is by foot, donkey or boat. There are plenty of
olive trees, juniper, oleander and wild flowers. Its untouched bush land and
crooked pathways, its numerous wildlife and the stunning sunsets provide the
perfect environment to get away from it all. There are dozens of remote coves
to be found around the entire coastline; Trikeri, Pithos and Ai Giannis are
pebble, while Afetica, Ai Giorgis, Pithu and Agia Sophia are sandy and pebble.
Following the coastal paths, it is possible to walk around the island in half a
day.The sleepy village -named Trikeri- has a couple of taverns and a mini
monasterymarket. There are very few visitors, even in the height of summer.
The island is dominated by the Monastery of the Virgin Mary, which is a 15
minutes’ walk from the quay and well worth the stroll. It has a small 18thcentury church with an arcaded courtyard of cells, and an overgrown garden of
orange trees and Madonna lilies. Guests are welcome to visit at certain times of
