The Krinaki beach got its name from the beautiful wild lilies that grow near the beach, located 3-4 km north of Xerokampos (dirt road) near the mouth of a river which is usually dry. The beach does not have any tourist facilities or other facilities for swimmers. Make sure you have the necessary or walk to the village of Xerokampos.
