It is surrounded by monolithic mountains, steep, with their summit reaching a height of 400 meters. Somewhere in the middle of the slope there is a large cave and around it live free sheep and wild goats. Legend has it that this is Cyclopes Bay, from Homer's Odyssey. Up there in the cave lived Polyphemus, these are his sheep, in there he ate Odysseus's companions, in there he got drunk and blinded by the king of Ithaca. A few meters from the shore, in the sea, there is a rock which, according to legend, is the rock that Polyphemus had once thrown to sink the boat that "Nobody" took!!

After leaving Areta we head to explore a unique place, the Small Canyon. One small gulf without beach but with a shallow canyon. A forgotten place with a huge history, it is probably one of the best spots in Chalki...

Small Canyon or Kellia (Cells)..

There is a shallow cave just above sea level that was used as a hermitage from Early Christian period about 6th century. In a cavity at the back
of the cave which is isolated from the rest of the space by a low wall are some quite well preserved wall-paintings.
The wall-paintings in the cave depict the young Christ Emmanuel between the archangels Michael and Gabriel and martyrs, with a gem-studded halo adorned with crosses and holding a staff in his left hand. To his left are preserved the archangel Michael and St Faustus or Faustinus and St
Kirykos, the last holding a wreath in his hand. To Christ's right is preserved the name of the archangel Gabriel, with the halo of another saint next to it. The representation is en-closed by a garland of red flowers and dark-green leaves.

The room at the north of the built cell, overlooking the sea, has been arranged as a 'church' and bears traces of two layers of wall-paintings. To the first belongs the quite fugitive, bulky figure of a full-length military saint. Of the second layer, the fine head of St Andrew is preserved, with
his name. He recalls the saint of the same name in Santa Maria Antiqua in Rome, which dates from the early 8th century.
