Paligremnos is the name of the cliff face at the far end of the beach, and during the 19th and 20th century, locals extracted ignite from the cliff. Today, you can still see traces of the industrial rail tracks and tunnels that passed through the natural flora and mountain side to Damnoni. It is said that at the start of the second World War, locals destroyed the tracks so that the Germans could not exploit the ignite shaft.
