Agia Eirini beach lies between the villages Elata and Mesta in the southwest side of the island, six kilometres from the port of Mesta. It is a calm, quiet beach, with thin sand surrounded by heavy greenery. A small shelter for local fishermen has been built in the bay.

The small church of Agia Eirini is also there, and on the saint's name day, May 5th, a traditional festival takes place in the village.

Opposite the beach the small islet lies the small islet of Agios Stefanos. Every year, on August 2nd, the people of Elata hold a festival in the islet. They cross over in boats and spend the night there.
If you choose Agia Eirini for your swim, you can have lunch or dinner in the only tavern there, which is open from May until the end of summer.
