Xi beach is definitely one of the most famous beaches in Kefalonia characterized by its white rocky hills that surround the beach and the reddish brown sand. It is a long drive from Argostoli about 40km and 10 km from Lixouri. The beach took its name from the cove that has the shape of the letter X. The beach is quite well- organized with straw umrellas and sunbeds. Right on the beach is a nice bar serving cold drinks and snacks and a watersports center for the most adventurous types. The shallow waters and the gentle waves create the ideal environment for the children. Around the area one will find many taverns, rooms to rent and small shops. A number of hotels are also available for your stay. The beach is easily accessed by car or public buses from Lixouri and Argostoli.

Vatsa is actually the beach everyone is looking for but very few are able to find! This is a sort of a local legend.
