What I will see and do around Kaspakas village:

• Church and beach of Ag. Yanni
• Katsaitis waterfalls
• Old watermill
• Fine almonds and figs
Six km outside of Myrina is the village Kaspakas, founded in the Byzantine era by sea captain Kaspakas, and has a mere 950 residents. The homes were built on a hillside and the topography is very mountainous and at a high altitude. While in the village, you would be amiss without paying a visit to the Mirsini farmhouse. The family maintains a cottage industry of homemade pastas, pastries, sweets and other farm-fresh goodies. Try their products and taste the purity of the natural, local ingredients….especially the almonds and figs.
Two km from Kaspakas is the beach and church of Ag. Yanni; enjoy a swim at the beach, and then check out the little, quaint church, proudly perched atop a rocky hill overlooking the sea. From the village harbor, a short walk will take you to the beautiful Katsaitis waterfalls and aon old watermill.
