  1. Do no believe what he say about 3 kilometers of mosquitoes! No or very few. The trail is either along the sea, or in the hills covered with pine. Mosquitoes like swamps, and there is only one swamp at the very end. Sensitive souls don’t have to go to the swamp but will still enjoy the of the hike.
