A really nice little beach that we cycled to from Lixouri. Spent the day on sun loungers and in the ocean with a few cocktails brought down to us.

The sea is crystal clear, with very safe water for children, three or four bars on the hill with reasonable priced food and drink, also clay which is suppose to have healthy properties. Toilets, showers and changing facilities available

This beach is lovely. With deep red sand and a shallow smooth sea with no pebbles or rocks. There is a good shop, bar and kids play area. All of excellent cleanliness and quality. I strongly recommend

Xi beach is a little bit crowded and you can see a garbage on some places. You can also visit a lot of great beach bars with great music. The sand is interesting and orange color is amazing. But I recommend you visit Xi beach...More

Went here when both Tavernas had just closed, which was unfortunate. We stayed awhile in the sun and then left to search for a drink. Worth a visit in the summer.
