Kefalonia Xi beach

General information

The seashore of Xi is amongst the most widely-known beach destinations in the Ionian islands, mostly due to its highly-unique scenery! This Blue-Flag beach boasts stunning red-colored coarse sand and crystal-clear light blue waters, creating a mesmerizing sharp color contrast! It also features a soft sand-filled seabed with staggered depths, whereas large white rock formations surround the seashore.

The beach is ideal for everyone, ranging from families with children to solo travelers. Also, Xi has a lot of gray clay on its shores, used by visitors as a quick therapeutic treatment. Furthermore, it is also frequently used by watersport enjoyers for a SUP session or windsurfing!

Xi is organizedfeaturing an abundance of sunbeds, sun umbrellas, and beachside bars for you to grab a drink, a cocktail mix, or a quick bite. Due to sudden storms during the winter time, the seashore has become less wide, so Xi nowadays provides little open space for visitors carrying their own parasols. Plus, one may find an array of hotels and rooms to let nearby!

    A place kids will love
    Our hotel was close to the beach of Xi, so we frequently visited this gorgeous beach. Xi was long and very sandy, in fact its sand was more red and less the typical golden sand. It would get very busy from noon till late in the evening, so we mostly went in the morning and then had the afternoon off to go sightseeing. There were so many umbrellas that you don't need to carry your own facilities. The water was quite shallow and kids will love this beach, s they will make lots of sand castles.
