This small, picturesque coastal village is located in the northeastern part of the island, at a distance of 36km far from Chora. On the top of the village lies the renowned “Kouros” (meaning handsome young man), an unfinished archaic statue of the 6th century B.C. It is 10 metres high and propably depicts the god Apollo or Dionysus.

In the village you can enjoy the homonymous beach, which combines pebbles and sand, or drink a coffee and have a meal in one of its lovely seaside restaurants. In case you want to stay for the night there are a few rooms to let and hotels, as well.
