Kefalonia’s best kept secret!
On the West coast of Kefalonia, in Paliki Peninsula, meet the ethereal Petani beach, which equally competes Myrtos in beauty and ambience.
Surrounded by water springs, this legend-inspiring bay of unrivaled beauty forms a dramatic scenery in all shades of blue as it emerges in your sight, embraced by rocks in lush greenery. The winding path to the beach offers breathtaking view to the Ionian Sea, while the beach features white pebbles and impressive rock formations, natural sculptures which complete the exotic scenery.
Enjoy sea dips from the rock formations, do snorkelling or diving and marvel the impressive sea bottom at the far end. However, this beach gets strong winds that really whip up the sea and can get dangerous, so would not suit families with young children or prefer to visit on a calm day.
Petani beach is fully organized with a canteen, sun beds and restaurants, so you can spend a great day here.
A local tip: The sunset view from Petani beach is just breathtaking, not to be missed! So, stay on the beach up until late and indulge in the beaming hues of the sun descending…
