Agia Kiriaki means Saint Sunday and is a stunning beach as you look down on it from above. Situated in a large bay that protects the water from wind and waves, this beach looks very inviting. It’s not easy to get to Agia Kiriaki at the end of a lonely road where people normally would not go, but it still seems to be discovered. Evenings are a delight to watch the setting sun over the turtle, yes Kelyfos Island looks its best from Kiriaki!
The beach is not developed so you will need to bring your own beach equipment. There is a campsite that has a cafe restaurant on a terrace overlooking the beach from a high vantage point, this is a great place for lunch stop or just a coffee to admire the view. There is also a taverna and a mini-market so all your bases are covered.
The beach is mostly sand but has pebbles mixed in. The sea bottom is more pebble and then turns to seaweed as you get further in. The seaweed is a sign of more life in this bay so the snorkeling is good, but the water not as clear as you will find at other beaches.
What’s great about Agia Kiriaki
You are in Sithonia’s more isolated part. Sunsets from here are picture perfect.
And what’s not…
The water is not so good for swimming, there are better options close by.
Going south towards Toroni, you pass the Porto Carras property line and turn right to the coast, always keep right. Once you reach the water you will be at Koutsoupia beach. Turn right and follow the coast for about a kilometer and you will reach Agia Kiriaki beach.
