Agia irini (Xerokambos - Ziros area)




This village belongs to the Lefki Municipality. Between Xerokambos and Atherinolakkos, in a dry, rocky and completely isolated landscape the small settlement of Agia Irini is hidden on a mountainside.

The view from the settlement to the sea is marvelous. Everyone who looks for the perfect peace and seclusion, has to visit the area of Agia Irini.

Though it is located just 500m far from the coast, there is no beach for swimming near the settlement. The only seashore in which someone can swim is the one at the exit of the gorge of Agia Irini. There the visitor can freshen after the tiring walking.
There are two ways where you can reach Agia Irini, either through the detour near Hamaitoulo village, either through Kalo Horio village. In both occasions the distance is almost 7kms of dirt road.

You will find also very interesting the path which starts from Xerokambos and ends to Agia Irini. Very interesting is also the gorge of Agia Irini.
