“The Xi Beach is a well-known, located 8km south of Lixouri. Xi Beach however has no steep cliffs or deep waters like most beaches in Kefalonia. Instead it’s very easy accessible, its water is very shallow and thus more than suitable for children. What makes the Xi Beach so unique and extremely impressive is its reddish color of sand. Because of its clayey composition, one can enjoy a natural and free spa session, as it is said to have cleaning and tightening effects to the skin. The beach is well organized; you will easily find parking, a canteen, a cafeteria and umbrellas. If you like you can also spread out your towels a bit farther to be more private. For water sport lovers, Xi Beach offers a big variety (Jet-Ski, Water-Ski etc.). Η παραλία Ξι , βρίσκεται 8χλμ νότια από το Ληξούρι. Έχειπολύ εύκολη πρόσβαση, το νερό είναι πολύ ρηχό και επομένως περισσότερο κατάλληλο για παιδιά. Αυτό που κάνει την παραλία Xi τόσο μοναδική και εξαιρετικά εντυπωσιακή είναι το κοκκινωπό χρώμα της άμμου. Λόγω της αργιλώδους σύνθεσής του, μπορεί κανείς να απολαύσει μια φυσική και ελεύθερη περιποίηση σπα, καθώς λέγεται ότι έχει καθαρισμό και σύσφιξη στην επιδερμίδα. Η παραλία είναι καλά οργανωμένη. θα βρείτε εύκολα χώρο στάθμευσης, καντίνα, καφετέρια , φαγητό και ομπρέλες. Αν σας αρέσει, μπορείτε επίσης να απλώσετε τις πετσέτες σας λίγο πιο μακριά για να είστε πιο ιδιωτικοί. Για τους λάτρεις του θαλάσσιου αθλήματος,προσφέρει μεγάλη ποικιλία (Jet-Ski, Water-Ski κλπ.).”

“ The highest mountain on the island, most of it is covered with a dense pine tree forest.Once you get to the top (if the weather is good ) you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the Ionian sea and the surrounding islands. There are multiple ways to get to the top of the mountain, the more conventional would be via car but if you enjoy hiking there are trails leading to the top. ”

“Alaties Beach (Salty Beach) is a fairly hidden and thus unknown beach, located in northwest of Kefalonia. The intersection for Alaties Beach is located on the main road from Argostoli to Fiskardo, in the settlement of Maganos. This small beach is surrounded by cliffs, which many people use to dive into the crystal clear waters. Its name comes from the small hollows of the rocks, on which the sea salt has dryed on. The sea ground is just fabulous. Continuous diving is not recommended though, because of the stong commended sea currents.”
