Agia Irini

it’s a

tiny village,

without electricity,

uninhabited

for most

of the year

except during

the harvest of the olives in wintertime and in August because some of the old inhabitants have returned for the summer holidays.

 

Lovely the view from the terraces rich of olive groves and Mediterranean plants; not to be missed the fountain of pure water and the small church built inside a cave.

 

The pebble beach and the crystal bay are accessible by a path-road that runs through the gorge and the dry bed of a river full of wild oleanders. It’s possible to equip a rustic barbecue on the beach near to the only fishermen hut.

 

All to be discovered the sea caves! At easy swim reach on the right side of the bay.

 

If you clik the small photos you will get a better idea on the environment you will find at

Agia Irini ............

Agia Irini  is reachable in about 40 minutes drive from Xerocampos (better by jeep 4x4 since from the fork of Hametoulo the road has no asphalt and is in pretty bad condition).

 

Agia Irini is also reachable by a circular path by making a detour from the main track of "Xerocampos-Ziros".

 

Coming from Xerocampos, at 4 km from the start of the path, past the narrowest first part of the gorge you will come to a junction that taken to the left will lead you first to the traditional semi-abandoned village of Chametoulo (800 meters) and then passed this, continuing for a short stretch of paved road (for other 800 meters) will take you to a dirt road, easily walkable, leading to the village of Agia Irini and further on to its pebble beach.
