Xigia beach is a picturesque pebbly beach that is unique on the island due to the water having high sulphur content, giving the beach a distinctive sulphuric aroma. The sulphur comes from a nearby cave and this beach is a great place for anyone with aches, pains and arthritis to bathe as the sulphul in the water helps ailments. It is also reputed to be good for skin problems and helps remove cellulite. This beach is easily accessible by car and parking is available nearby. There are a handful of good tavernas in the vicinity although there are no facilities actually on the small beach, so make sure you take water and other necessities with you.
