West of Xyrosyrtis, approximately central on the south coast, lies the amphitheatrically built seaside village Chrysostomos, with green olives and a lovely beach.

In the sea you can see the rock where Icarus crashed. Αccording to Greek mythology Icarus is said to have fallen from the sky and drowned because his waxed feather wings melted when he flew too close to the sun. 

Chrysostomos and the nearby district Vaoni are famous for their rich olive production.
