Xi Beach


18nth of June
A unique resort

The last stop of our trip, for that particular day, before our return to Lixouri, was the touristic resort Xi.

To the south part of Kefalonia, near the village Mantzavinata and only 8 km away from Lixouri, there is a bay that if watched from above resembles the Greek letter “Ξ” (pronounced Xi in Greek).
The beach took its name from this particular letter.
An exquisite colorful palette is created here by the red sand, combined with the clay at the bottom of the sea, and the impressive white rocks that surround the bay.  
 


The waters are very shallow and the access to them very easy, while at the same time the clayish composition of the sand is the ultimate natural spa. The detoxification and firming qualities of clay, as far as skin, are well known and used widely in cosmetics.

Accordingly to the famous magazine “Travel & Leisure” the Xi Beach is among the 20 strangest beaches in the world.  

 


It is a very popular touristic resort, very well organized, something that we had the chance to see for ourselves, and naturally we took many photos and videos of it.
 


Gourmet explorations…one more time!

After completing our trip to all those beautiful places of Paliki, we returned to Lixouri in the evening and went to enjoy one more refined dinner to our familiar now “YACHT CLUB”.

This time we tried delicious pasta with big prawns and fresh salmon, marinated two days in a secret “YACHT CLUB” recipe, with predominant the aromas of brandy and orange.  
The refined dish was accompanied with fresh rocket salad.
We also tried grilled bio chicken fillet, marinated in sweet curry, ginger, pepper, orange, lime and coriander.

The sauce was prepared with fresh orange juice.
A rich, fresh salad and grilled vegetables marinated with local rose vinegar accompanied this exquisite gastronomical creation of the “YACHT CLUB” restaurant.   
 


After our excellent dinner, happy, fulfilled and with the beautiful pictures and experiences that Paliki had offered us that day in mind, we returned to our villa in Lepeda, so as to rest and sleep.
