We stayed at the Cephalonia palace. You just walked past the pool and you were on the beach. It's pretty with some rock cliffs, and red sand. You can rent umbrellas and chairs to provide some shade. It's pleasant walking on the beach. I went...More

Cluttered mess, entirely over developed. May as well go to costa wotsit. Naff. Poor, disinterested service in restaurant near to beach.. Good for someone that likes crowds, conformity, comfort of sunbed, noisy watersports and lacks imagination?

We brought 4 families here. All had small children. The water was very shallow out about 50 yards. There are practically no waves. The sand itself is a dark reddish brown and very fine. Along the edge of the beach are tall towering clay cliffs....More

A great beach that on the southerly end has watersports (jet bike, water skiing, donuts etc). Mainly organised beds (€6 per pair of beds and umbrella per day), but with space if you prefer to just lay on your towel. All of the beds belong...More

This is just a commercial beach with the usual beach services, sun beds and drinks. The red sand is messy. The beach is not especially beautiful. You can do a lot better in Kefalonia.

Easy 15 min drive from Luxouri. Small car park at very pretentious looking beach bar or park on road. Cleanish red sand and no pebbles. Mass of parasols but we found space to the left to pitch up. Good views from hills, especially from water....More

It's not every day you could see a reddish brown sand with rocks in silver blue that actually happen to be clay rocks. A must see. The beach is small but long with umbrellas and near by bars. Quite cosy and extraordinary in fact.

Nice beach suitable for young children with a very gentle shelf. Clean, not crowded. Only slight spoiler was one of the kids stepping on what may have been a weaver fish spine, but that can happen anywhere!!

A really nice little beach that we cycled to from Lixouri. Spent the day on sun loungers and in the ocean with a few cocktails brought down to us.
