The rotting timbers of the remains of the Star of Greece, a three masted, iron cargo ship, wrecked here in 1888, provide a poignant reminder of the storms that can sometimes disturb this normally placid coastline. Jetty pylons are all that remain of this coastal village's early days as a grain port. The soft, sandy beach is now greatly valued as a pleasant family haven, overlooked by cliffs where fishermen once carved out caves to store their boats and nets. Now the closest some people get to the local squid and garfish is in the popular Star of Greece restaurant overlooking the beach.
