Petani Beach, Lixouri

(800+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • I've been several times in Cephalonia, even after many years. Petani Beach has always remained my favorite beach. Maybe the colors are less surprising the more famous Myrtos Beach, but on the whole I always preferred. It's more usable, less crowded, beautiful water of a beautiful Turquoise. For those who want the beach, there are plants at affordable prices, while for those who want to hang out on the sand with only his towel, just make two more steps and is found throughout nature and tranquility in the world. Not unimportant then is the fact that there are two delicious restaurants to eat fresh fish cooked well at modest prices.

  • Great beach and next door and a small Bay even more beautiful ... very good also the tavern just above the beach where they prepare a fantastic fried fish. Equipped beach.

  • Petani Beach is the most stunning beach and a must see for visitors to Cephalonia. In the summer months, it's best to get there around 10am, as parking is very limited. There are 2 beach tavernas with...  more »

  • 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.
