Set in a very unspoiled part of Kefalonia, Petani very much resembles Mirtos beach, with a curved bay and a beautiful clear deep blue sea. The coastline here is not quite as rugged and dramatic, but none of the less awe inspiring!

There are two ways of getting to Petani, the first is to take the scenic coast road around the Gulf of Argostoli, heading towards Athres Bay, there is a small turning on the left, as you approach Petani there is a steep access road on the right, with the familiar hairpin bends that is quite usual to access most beaches on this island, alternatively take the ferry from Argostoli to Lixouri, it is then a fairly easy drive north to the curve in the gulf, take the Athres road, etc. to Petani beach.

Either way, it is well worth the effort, as you will be rewarded with sensational scenery.
