Places to Visit:
Acharavi & Roda
Acharvi has 2 miles of sandy beach, gently shelving into the sea and is liberally
covered with large areas of pebble. The beach is very safe for children, and
hosts a number of water sports that include windsurfing, pedalloes, water-skiing
and paragliding. The beach at Roda is 500 yards of narrow sandy beach directly
in front of the resort centre, which turns into a pebble beach towards Acharvi.
The water is shallow for a long way and so calm it is almost lake-like, so
safe for children.
The main beach in Corfu Town is just under 1.5 miles along the coast, and
is a small, public, man-made shingle beach for which there is a minimal entry
charge. However, there are a number of other beaches within close vicinity
which tourists tend to visit due top their spectacular views.
A busy and bustling resort, Dassia is getting quite a reputation for its watersports
including waterskiing, parascending and scuba diving. Its long shingle beach
with good stretch of shallow water means it's also good for young children.
Messonghi & Moraitika
Tree covered hills fill the horizon at this friendly resort The sand and shingle
beach Is long and narrow and great for children because of the shallow water
and the fact that parents can always see where they are. Shops and tavernas
line the road leading from the north end of the beach and the bigger, more
lively resort of Moraitika is within easy striking distance.
Lie on the pebble beach at Gouvia and gaze at the whitewashed church of Ipapanti
Church opposite. Kontokali boasts an incredibly clean sand and pebble beach
which is cleared of weed and rubbish early every morning. It has been given
EU Blue Flag status and has sunloungers and parasols for hire.
The very pretty circular harbour is a lovely place to while away some time
and, as Kassiopi is still a working fishing port, it's an interesting one too.
Kavos has a long stretch of terracotta sand, windsurfing and watersports and
is just a 20-minute drive to the west coast of the island.
Nissaki Bay is a tiny white-pebbled cove tucked away at the bottom of a steep
hill off the main road. It is the smallest of the three beaches. A very steep
road leads to Kaminaki Beach where you will find limited parking or stroll
down through the olive groves that begin at the main road. It's worth the effort
as the exceptionally clear waters make this a superb place for snorkelling.
The Iong, pebbly Krouseri beach has watersports, boat trips and sunloungers.
St George (South)
St George boasts a long, beautiful golden sandy beach, which is said to be
the best on the island. There are plenty of excellent bars, tavernas and restaurants
running along the edge of this curving beach.
The mix of sand and shingle beach with shallow water is set within a peaceful
area full of natural beauty, excellent for exploring on foot, and near all
amenities, although all beaches are some distance from the village.
Sidari beach runs parallel to the main road and boasts dark terracotta sand
and warm, shallow water. The Canal d'Amour Is Sidari's star attraction. Originally
a rock formation in the shape of an arch, though this has long since crumbled
away, legend has it that any woman who swims its length will win the man of
her dreams. This area also has several sandy coves enclosed by rocky gorges.
Watch the sun go down at Sunset Beach and you'll agree that this stunning spot,
with its narrow strip of sand and towering cliffs, more than lives up to its
name. A few kilometres west of Sidari, It's quiet and romantic here though
there are no sunloungers or parasols for hire.
Tsaki & Benitses
The beach at Benitses is small and made up mostly of rough shingle and pebbles,
and sloping steeply at the water's edge. There are water-based activities available
in high season these include paragliding, water-skiing and pedalloes. Sun beds
and parasols are available for hire.
San Stefanos (NW)
A wide stretch of sand sweeps around a sparkling bay. Best of all it is relatively
undiscovered-no danger here of someone reading over your shoulder.
The main sandy, blue flag beach shelves very gently into the shallow turquoise
sea, making this an ideal spot for famines. Lying at the northern end of along
bay, the setting is spectacular with a beautiful backdrop of green hills and
olive groves with excellent views of the little island of Kravia. Here you
have the opportunity to parasail, water-ski and windsurf or you can hire pedalloes
