This small beach is not organised but is the most beautiful in the region. The low surrounding hills isolate it and offer an almost silent, 'private', but also exceptionally beautiful beach. And if you 'climb' and go behind the small hills you will find other smaller and even quieter beaches with the same fine and golden sand. Although there is nothing on the beach, visitors can find everything within walking distance. Like all beaches in the area is affected by the winds of the region, which makes it ideal for lovers of windsurfing.
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.
