This village is the home of the writer Stratis Mirivilis. In addition there is the church of Agia Fotini, the patron saint of the village and the church of Sotiros "the Saviour" which keeps a beautiful wooden iconostasis in the church.

Skala Sikaminea is on the coast, about three kilometers from Sikaminea, it is a typical fishing village with the church of Saint Mary "Panagia Gorgona" and a beautiful sunset. In the colourful harbour are many outdoor cafes. The villages Lepetinos and Argenos lie between dense olive groves.
