Until the beginning of the 20th century, the town consisted of a few houses. Only in the course of the population exchange with Turkey did the population increase significantly.
The main source of income for the inhabitants is fishery and tourism. A few years ago, the port was greatly expanded so that it now also offers larger yachts the opportunity to moor.
A promenade by the sea invites you to take a walk. The main attractions are the castle and the harbor.
