Mesmerizing Beach with Blue Flag…

So, we said good bye to Lixouri for the time being and took the coast road, which was passing through the villages Agios Dimitrios and Livadi.
Then we climbed up towards one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, honored with the Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters with their amazing emerald and sapphire colors.
It is the organized for its guests Petani Beach, almost identical with its famous cousin, the Myrtos Bay…
It has nothing to be jealous about its celebrated…relative, which we also had the joy to see and photograph previously.
 


The Petani Beach is situated at the basement of a rugged road and is surrounded by steep cliffs formatted by local limestone.  
We passed by the hotel Petani Bay with the amazing views to the beach and when we arrived to our destination, we parked the car just a few meters away from the sea.
 


The enchanting beach with the turquoise waters and the white pebbles is divided in two parts.
The left part has two bar/restaurants and is equipped with umbrellas and sun loungers, while its right part leads to a smaller creek.
If one wants to reach there has to climb through big rocks.
We visited first the right side, which was more impressive in a primitive way, and took photos and videos capturing its exceptional beauty.
 


Then, we visited the left side of the beach, which is more organized and more convenient for tourists. We enjoyed coffee and refreshments in the café/bar LA VIDA LOCA.
 


We became friends with two kind and polite young men, Mattheos and Yannis, who work there.
They gave us the precious information that in Petani Beach we would be able to admire and photograph one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Ionian Sea.
We promised to return, so as to take snapshots and videos of this unique sunset and after saying good bye to the kind and hospitable youngsters at the bar, we left behind us the Petani Beach and drove towards Porto Athera, the seaport of the mountain village Atheras.
