The route begins at the Tseri village and goes through the villages of Tseri, Analiondas and Lythrodontas. It then takes an easterly course through the villages of Mathiatis, Sia, Mosfiloti, Psevdas and Agia Anna until it reaches the Kalo Chorio grade separated junction near the old Larnaka-Kofinou road. There it turns left and to the northwest to reach the Larnaka Fire Department traffic lights and from there the main beachfront of Larnaca city, the Palm tree beach (Foinikoudes).

Route Description: This route is an alternative for going from Larnaka to Lefkosia or vice versa. The monotony of travelling only on paved roads is broken by going through several villages allowing for a little sightseeing and rest.
