Lychnistis beach is located 60 km to the south of Rethymno and 3 km to the west of Agia Galini of Rethymno prefecture.
The name of the Lychnistis beach originates from the fact that in the past there was a lot of winnowing in this area (lichnizo = winnow).

Unlike Kolympistiri, on Lychnistis you will find taverns, rooms-to-let and rented sunbeds and umbrellas.
Lychnistis can be easily reached from Agia Galini by boat.
