It can only be reached by boat. There is no placement on it. Boats are anchored at Shipyard Bay at the end.

There is a byzantine church structure here. Since there was no excavation, this island, whose history we do not know, is full of ruins. According to Shipyard Bay, on the right side you can see the sunken shops and the remains of the sunken city in the water on the left. When we follow it ashore, we can see that half the houses are submerged and the stairs go down to the sea. It is also possible to see the foundations and house floors in the sea.

There are glass windows where you can watch underwater on many boats that organize tours to this area from the three mouths. It is forbidden to swim and dive on the shores of the island except Shipyard Bay.
