The area has been developing in recent years. Until recently Myrodato (also known as Skala Avdira) was just an empty beach, today there are many country houses. The place is visited mostly by Bulgarians and Turks, due to the proximity of their borders.

A special feature of this beach, like most coasts of the municipality, is the fine white sand, clear waters and long stretches of coast.
