Awarded Blue Flag status for 2021
Xi beach is located on the south coast of the Paliki peninsular approximately 7km from the square at Lixouri, which is about a 10 minute drive away. It has at each end some very distinctive chalk cliffs.
The beach is exposed and faces south which makes the shallow water warm all day during the summer months. The reddish clay infused sand occasionally means that the shallow water is cloudy and may not be good for snorkelling.
There are sunbeds available for rent on Xi beach, which in 2020 cost €10 for a pair. There is a good choice of restaurants and beach bars nearby.
