Lovely beach, sea really salty and able to float easily. You can rent a covered sun bed pretty cheaply and order food to your sun bed.

Xi beach is near Lixouri. It is unusual in that the sand is reddish in colour. There are good facilities for all the family- an indoor children’s play area and a restaurant.

Xi Beach is so amazing!! I love the red sand that is so unique and you cannot find it elsewhere in Kefalonia island. There were sunbeds, bar with music, watersports. The whole scenery was absolutely fantastic!!

This is an amazing beach with reddish/brown sands, and very shallow, but clear, sandy waters! It is unlike anything else in Kefalonia, so you should see it for its uniqueness, if nothing else. Because the water is so shallow, it is very warm, you will...More
