The beach of Agia Irini (Saint Irene beach), Kythnos, is located in front of the settlement overlooking the picturesque bay. The inner cove of Agia Irini (Saint Irene) belongs to the broader Loutra Bay (Baths bay) and due to its location is very sheltered.
The small beach is sandy with shallow waters and ideal for families with young children. The beach is bordered by the church of Agia Irini (Saint Irene) in the northern part and the small dock with the two-storey Cycladic houses to the south. Scattered on the beach there are large trees where visitors can relax and enjoy peaceful moments. Because it is a small non-organized beach it is advisable to arrive with at least the basics.
Also, the holidaymaker can find respite in the shops of the beach and in the courtyard of the St. Irene Church, which occasionally have chosen by celebrities for weddings and christenings. The beach area also happens to have been used to organize parties and receptions with the assistance and overseeing of the local restaurant.
