Aparently this is the site where the lyric poet Sapfo committed suicide , so there is a lot of history , also if I understood correctly the name of the Island originates from the white colour of the rocks , described also in Homer's epic.

Wow! We expected this place to be as overcrowded as the rest of the island, but there was barely anyone there. We got there around 6.45pm and the light at that time is incredible. The drive down is gorgeous, and you can start spotting the...More

Endless view, beautiful sea and Islands. If you can come for sunset. During the day it's beautiful but hot. But to see the sunset is great.
