Pyrgaki beach is a beautiful stretch of sand, ideal for relaxing on without the pressing crowds that flock to other beaches. However, the real draw to the town is the Alyko Cedar forest in the west.
The forest covers the nearby peninsula and makes for a lovely walking spot, with several more, secluded, quiet beaches to check out. The most interesting thing in the forest though is the sprawling abandoned hotel that now lays in ruins.
Covering half of the peninsula, the ruins are a playground for anyone who enjoys exploring ruined buildings. Lovers of street art will appreciate the many impressive murals that now adorn the walls.

The 6th-century structure is one of the best kept examples on the island and still features upright walls and fully erect columns.
