Chytra

One of the most impressive parts of the island is the skerry of Chytra or else Avgo (egg), located at a short distance across the harbor of Kapsali. On its south side there is a cave with enchanting colors both in the exterior and on the seabed. At the end of the cave there is a haven for seals. Going up on the isle requires attention, as the ground is steep and rocky.

The rare and protected species of falcons (Varvaki) built their nests on these steep rocks. Also, the island’s local “flower”, “Sempreviva”, blooms in this difficult terrain, handpicked each June by experienced locals only, due to the difficult passages! The only way to visit Chytra is with your own boat or with Captain Spiros and his boat, “Alexandros”!
