Petani Beach, Lixouri
(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Experience both the mountains and the coast at Petani Beach, where a steep road leads to the sandy shore. Along the edge, limestone hills covered with lush overgrowth surround the beach, and the remote location and wide seashore make the sand-and-pebble beach feel private. Keep in mind that the only way to reach the beach is by car. There is free parking, and two tavernas offer refreshments and facilities, so don't worry about bringing a big bag of gear.  Our Lixouri family vacation planner makes visiting Petani Beach and other Lixouri attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of the island! Is a part equipped, the prices for renting a beach umbrella and two lounges are really low (6 € for the whole day) as well as those of the bars on the beach. The beach is composed of white pebbles that make it even more striking shades of clear water!

  • A small myrtos beach but without the problem of wasps. Beautiful the way to arrive, also very choreographed. The sea was not beautiful. Beach service on the cheap and the surplus of a tavern overlooking the sea with excellent cuisine.

  • Great! The beach is great, wonderful water and beautifully coloured, great food, just perfect!
  • Worth a visit. One of those Beaches with a magic view when you arrive. We rented bikes and had nice biking and it one of the best days during the week....
  • Amazing crystal clear waters. Avoid to drive to the end of the road. You may get stucked..
  • I call this the local's Myrtos. Tucked away on the northern end of the Paliki peninsula, it offers a beautiful setting with somewhat calm water and great snorkeling!
  • Very nice beach with colourful blue sea, near is two restaurants with cold drinks, good food and nice people. You can hardly find a parking for car but with some driving experience you can. It's on west side of island so sun go down over horizon. Must see.
