In the area there are carvings and the bases of Mionan buildings on land and in the sea, while at the north side of the sandy beach two big rectangular carvings have been found flooded with sea water. These are probably spaces where Minoan ships were built, says Mr. Tsikritsis.
The shipyard of Minoan period was first mentioned by archaeologist S. Marinatos, who wrote that the shipyard was carved deep within the small bay, where porous stone had been quarried out of a big rectangular cavity.
