Corfu Beaches

There is an exceptional vriety of beaches in Corfu, from tiny coves to beaches with sand or pebbles stretching for miles and from isolate to jet-set beaches.

Myrtiotissa beach

Corfu's most beautiful each, in a steep-sided wooded cove. Pines, banana trees, sand and tranquility generally because access by a very poor dirt road attracts mostly nature-lovers and nudists.

The scenery is superb.

The road here from Pelekas or Gialiskari takes you through a lush green landscape until you arrive at this sandy beach which , although organized, with eating places and water sports has preserved its natural environment relatively unspoiled.

kontogialos beach


A beach with sand and pine tress right down to the water among steep rocks. The hotel provides a parking lot, umbrellas, a snack bar and taverna.


A transparent sea surrounded by a green landscape. The environment is untouched, despite the sandy beach, easy parking space and two tavernas. Although a lot of people go there you will not be bothered. More peaceful is Skydi beach 200 meters away with sand and tavernas.


Along the wetlands of Lake Korission the unspoiled sand beach of Halikounastrtches for miles. From eh north side at Alonaki a decent dirt track takes you over the dunes to the narrow channel between the lake and the sea. There is an agreeable fishing taverna Alonaki on the northern part and the south side is just as attractive and is reached from Linia. Concerts also take place on Halikouna beach in the summer.

Agios Gordis

Wooded slopes down to a sandy bay in superb scenery. This is one of Corfu's prettiest beaches but uncontrolled building has choked the area. To part there is an adventure although the village has much to offer in the way of nightlife. From the spot just above Agios Gordis called Aerostato just outside Sinarades view is magnificent.
