Petani Beach, Lixouri

Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • The beach is very small pebbles with some larger stones shining like marble from being polished by the sea. Plenty of umbrellas and beds but also space to do your own thing. Two nice tavernas and one ...  more »

  • Amazing beach with everything you could wish for, stunning views, nice tavernas with toilets and changing and loungers on the beach. Parking is interesting, but on the busy day we went there were life guard sorts helping out directing and marshalling at the bottom of the road which was a godsend.
  • I preferred this beach to the much-talked-about Myrthos beach. Petani has facilities - sun beds and umbrellas, tavernas and beach bars with food and drinks available and delivered straight to your spot on the beach. None of this was available on Myrthos where you have to bring all the beach necessities with you unless you want to grill in the sun. This was all beginning of June.
  • This is just an idyllic spot, hire that car and get down to this sensational place. A small restaurant to cater for your needs as well.
  • Lovely place, next to see, free parking for gests, staff is very nice
  • 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....
