Petani Beach, Lixouri

4.6
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Lixouri
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.  Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Petani Beach by using our Lixouri trip planner .

  • We have been to Petani in the afternoon and it was crowded but still walking we found a quiet part and with few people. The beach is very nice white stones. Is equipped but has plenty of umbrellas. In the afternoon there are algae but only on one side for which you pissono to avoid and the sea is really nice. It is worth seeing. There are also tavernas for lunch. Also suitable for children.

  • Glance from above which remains in the heart. Crystal clear water and beach of white pebbles. An excellent taverna on the beach with a good value for money. Two deck chairs and a parasol of August 6 euros. The sunset not to be missed. Gorgeous!

  • Beautiful beach with a sea hardly comparable, great for snorkeling among each other. Minimal but functional equipment, sufficient parking and access is difficult. The only drawback the music so loud, distinctive compared to a wild and intact

  • Worth the drive to get to, this is a stunning beach. It has 2 tavernas, beach beds and umbrellas. We visited in mid-September and it obviously draws plenty of visitors as it was quite busy without feeling uncomfortably overcrowded. The approach road winds steeply down some fairly sharp hairpins with great views as you descend. We were able to park pretty close, but I expect it's a slightly different story in peak season
  • This is a unique beach composed of white/grey pebbles. The waters are clear and cool. The waves are fun for children and adults as well but caution is required due to the sudden steep water entrance. Parking the car has now become a lot easier since there is now more available space (with a small fee, of course).
  • Beautiful beach but pebbles galore - you will definitely need to bring some footwear! There are 3 tavernas, the middle one is great - lovely service and very keen prices for a beach front!
  • Great beach! Crystal clear waters you don't want to get out of! On a windy day there might be waves... just use them for more play time!
  • Great beach! Water gets deep quickly and is crystal clear! Many fish and no sea urchins or anything of the sort! Stones at the sea fade into sand towards the back of the beach! Overall amazing!
