My wife and I found this stretch of beach on the Lixouri side coast of Kefalinia and we fell in love with it!!
The brown sand and the slow sloping drift into the water with the view of rabbit island less than a mile offshore is something we will remember for ever!
On top of that, the owner of the local beach bar ( that sells tea/coffee and food) has just bought ten new lattice type loungers that are so comfortable we had to stay there most of the day!
He has the old type too that are only 5 euros a day ( the new ones are 10 euros a day, but well worth it!).
Gently walk into the warm water that is so clear and just drift, the water is only 6 feet deep even though we were 30 metres out!!
Its the perfect spot to chill and re-charge your mojo ready for the bustle of life!
A sure fire indication this is a good beach to go to is the fact that locals visit it on a daily basis.
If you are in the area give it look!

If you want a good beach under cover sunbed with a ice cold drink and relaxing time at the restaurant above , Fishbones, walk the length of the beach to the rocks and do some snorkling here and you will enjoy a great day out, recommended, went twice and had a great day there.

Spoilt for choice this side of Kefalonia! Lovely day spent here just 15 mins outside Lixouri.
Sunbeds 6€ for the pair and round of 5 drinks 11€.
Topped off with a Fishbones lunch (totally over ordered but worth it!)
Would happily stay here until the sun set and yes we'll definitely return:)

Perfect for young children and snorkelling and small beach bar/restaurant with friendly staff. 2 beach beds and an umbrella cost 5 Euros per day to hire.

Far from the maddening crowd is this lovely beach with safe swimming and clear sea. When you are there you must visit Fishbones taverna - it is fab during the day for lunches and even better at night. You can walk from here along to Xi beach
