  • Notes:
    We drove to Petani beach because we read in several guides that it is even better than Myrtos beach. On the map it looks like an out of the way place, so we envisioned a beach as good as Myrtos but with less people. We were disapointed to find that Petani is much smaller, and a much more crowded beach. Perhaps before all the development it was a beautiful place to swim, but today it cannot be compared with other top-notch beaches of Greece. It's a nice place to swim for sure. The beach is pleasant and the water crisp and beautiful.

    Comments As I have traveled the world many times over, being a pilot, I found this beacht to be one of my top 3 places I have been able to experience. There is a wonderful taverna named Souras where one can get a great meal and really enjoy the best that nature has to offer.

    Comments As far as overall scenery, water quality, swimming, snorkeling, relaxation, authentic food, and old-world quality charm/hospitality, this beach is the best I have ever visited. If you are looking for Marriott accommodations, this beach is not for you.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
