Valtaki Beach is 5 km away from Gythio.
In Valtaki there is an old shipwreck next to the coast that is visible from the road. The shipwreck is the ship Dimitrios and is on the beach since 1981.
There are many versions of how it was found there. Some sources claim to have smuggled cigarettes and set fire to conceal the evidence, others say it strangely disappeared from the port of Gytheio to be found burnt in the Valtaki.
Whatever the truth the ship is located just a few meters from the coast and operates as a tourist attraction.
