Kapsali ( Kythira ) is a popular tourist resort, 2 km southeast of Chora. The beach consists of two sandy bays. The smaller one consists of small rocks and is quite remote, while the other one offers a refreshing swim at the beautiful crystal waters. It is one of the most popular beaches of the island lined with restaurants and cafes. Due to its safe and pleasant environment it is quite ideal for families and children. The rocky islet of Avgo (egg) can be seen offshore, forming a strange shape. The locals claim that it is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and desire.
