A very special promontory with a church dating to the 17th c. and a legend that goes back to the dreadful centuries of piracy, plunder and hardship while Greece lived under venetian, ottoman and even byzantine rule. It is a beautiful spot for eastern perspectives toward Paros and the Aegean but also for the nearby coves of Faros and Fassolou. The bus route to Platys Yalos leaves the visitor at the Chryssopigi spot on the asphalt road and there's a short path down to the church and the lovely beach of Apokofto. After visiting the church, the leisurely visit might include lunch or an early sundown dinner at one of the two restaurants on the cove: The "Chryssopigi "--a very good one; and "Apokofto", a wonderful spot with local offerings as well, though not always the best. Still, both locations are a small part of paradise.
