deserted village-walkable from Livadia and can be combined into a round trip to Lethra beach. Interesting- no signaposts etc in village and could not find high-level path marked on map down to Elephant cave area

I understand it was due to people leaving the village for neighbouring larger islands after WWII. It may also be due to natural spring water running dry.
