Pendakomo, comprised five settlements (pente-five, komi=village) which, at one time merged or disappeared to form the Pentakomo of today. The Pentakomo coastline, from the monastery of Agios Georgios Alamanos to Governor’s Beach, is unspoilt, while the coasts themselves have been subjected to such erosion that curious but interesting features have arisen, such as caves,
arches, stacks and islands.
On a narrow coastal area, to the west of the village of Mari, stretches a picturesque beach, which recently became known by the name of Governor’s Beach. This rocky and sandy beach, stretching for about one kilometer, has become, particularly after the Turkish invasion of 1974, a popular spot for bathers, campers and summer vacations.
Today, the area features all necessary amenities and comforts. The area covers about 13 ha of land and, in 1991, an athletics field, a tourist beach and other amenities began operation. A biological waste processing plant was also established. There are 358 camping lots, 111 for caravans and the remaining 247 for tents. Provisions also include parking spaces, public utilities, refreshment stands, a grocery, children’s play areas, garbage disposal units, paved pathways and benches.
At a distance of about a kilometer west of Governor’s Beach, the force of the waves has broken the rocks, especially at weak points, and has led to the creation of various geomorphologic features.
The church of Panayias Neroforousas and the chapel of Ayios Ioannis are located in the community. The monastery of Agios Georgios Alamanos is located only 2 kilometer from the village Pendakomo.
