Nice pictures but this is not a place to spend more than one hour. If you like the motor boats sound and the ski jets , maybe you’ll spend more.

Xi beach was absolutely wonderful. Although we stayed in Poros (quite far on the other side of the island), visiting this beach was absolutely worth it. Beautiful red sand and crystal blue water with white rocks surrounding this beach make this experience fantastic. There is...More

Nice beach but I wouldn't recommend visiting in July or August. Extremely busy. Sunbeds are placed in a way that there isn't much space in between. I would go back in September or May.
