Rock Of Ikaros
Located in the sea about 50m offshore on the sea coast below Vaoni village, the "Rock of Ikaros" according to mythology is where Ikaros fell into the sea after having lost his wings. The surrounding coast line is formed of naturally carved marble and is a beautiful and interesting landscape to explore. The site was designated as the ceremonial base for lighting the flame of the World Air games and the organizers built a stone amphitheater and impressive flame base for the ceremony that took place. Access to the site is via the main road from Agios Kirikos to Magganitis. A left turnoff down onto a dirt road 800m before the village center of Vaoni will lead you down to the sea near the site. The road can be washed out at times so care is needed and it may be neccessary to walk towards the end.
