One of the spot that draws much visitors is the Greek Ship stranded near to its shores. To this day, it is not clear how the ship got stranded.

They burned down the ship while they left and all what is left is the steel structure.
Another attraction is the underground ancient aqueduct also called the 'Underground City' which is partially open for tourists.The underground aqueduct was built around 1000 years ago for transportation and water supply across the different parts of the island. The next attraction are the beautiful beaches that all captivate the eye with their bluish tint and the long shoreline that attracts many tourists during the winter season.
