Petani Beach, Lixouri

Must see · 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.  Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Petani Beach by using our Lixouri trip planner.
