Xi Beach aka the Red Beach in Paliki Peninsula (Kefalonia)

Dutchman and I spent a lazy afternoon here at Xi Beach last summer which is nicknamed by many Greek locals as the Red Beach because of its red-orange-ish coloured sand.

Now I have previously read about this beach online so we didn’t waste time in getting here from the moment our ferry docked on the harbour of Lixouri.

Dutchman and I will be spending the whole day exploring some of the areas in the southern part of the Paliki peninsula. We have alotted several hours of beaching and downtime here at Xi Beach (Paralia Xi) and we plan to spend the rest of the evening in Lixouri, the second largest city of Kefalonia.

Here are some of the things we liked about Xi Beach:

  • There are a good number of really chic and upscale beach bars and restaurants with music here. Just take your pick!
  • It is a sandy beach so you can walk barefooted. Many beaches in the Greek Islands are shingle beaches so a sandy one is always appreciated every now and then.
  • Some of the sunbeds and parasols are free as long as you buy something from the beach bar.
  • The beach slopes gently into the sea which is great for those who do not possess great swimming prowess. Best for families with little children as well.
  • It’s quite a lively beach so there are lots to see and enjoy whilst lazing around. You will not get bored people watching here for example.
  • Xi is quite big, guaranteeing 4 kilometres stretch of beach shoreline.

Here is the location of Xi Beach on the map of Kefalonia:

Xi Beach is just 11 minutes from Lixouri in the Paliki peninsula.

This beach is definitely a beach that you should check out in Paliki peninsula if you are holidaying in Kefalonia Island, Greece.

This woman is horribly dark that her skin resembles like dark brown leather. She is posing here for a photo session. Careful now not to wet the book!

I love those cabanas with curtains on the beach.

Moi, just had a dip in the sea =)

Playing ping pong on the beach is quite popular for this particular afternoon.

Ice creams taste really good on the beach. Yummy!

Dutchman and I quite like Xi Beach.
