Beach Kiosks and Lilo Selling: Buy a Second hand Lilo from Skala Potamias
At the beach kiosks at Skala Potamias some owners sell second hand lilos so it is a good idea to get one from there instead of buying a new one for the days of your holidays.
These cost a few euros, and you can leave them behind in case you don't wish to carry them with you. You can take them back to the same kiosk if you wish so that another person can buy cheaply, or leave it on a beach if you don't wish to carry it with you.
Surely somebody else will use it!
