... Corfu beaches

What characterises the famous Greek coasts is their unique diversity. The eastern coasts offer a calm sea, a variety of marine sports, a multitude of reek recipes and the famous Greek wine in small fish-taverns. From there, they can have excursions on traditional fishing-boats to secluded bays or enjoy a romantic rowing-boat trip under the full moon. The western coasts offer vast sandy beaches but also the fascinating bays of Paleokastritsa, shaping among the rocky cliffs, that actually come down to the sea.
There are many organised beaches in the country providing high-quality services (umbrellas, reclining chairs, changing booths, cafes, bar-restaurants etc), where, apart from swimming, you can enjoy water sports  (water ski, windsurfing, diving etc) as well as other means of having fun in the water, such as the parachute for one or two persons, “tyres” and the “banana”, pedalo, jet ski etc. All organised beaches also have lifeguard towers ensuring safe swimming in the area.
Many of Corfu beaches are awarded with the Blue Flag of the European Union.
EXPLORE BEACHES IN CORFU
Glyfada: Corfu's most famous beach. Apart rom its blue flag, it has also earned the title of the fourth most popular beach in Greece  More...

Myrtiotissa: A beautiful alternative
The steep dirt road has never been surfaced - as if on purpose to keep Myrtiotissa as untouched as possible

Yaliskari: Green against blue, pines that come right down to the sea, fine sand, turquoise waters. Yaliskari may be the smallest of the beaches on the western side of Corfu island  More...

Kontogialos: A quiet sandy bay, lush and green, with a few rooms to let and some tavernas below Pelekas: that - until recently - was the setting at Kontogialos  More...

Agios Gordios: German toddlers playing with their buckets and spades in the sand, groups of scuba divers setting off by the boatload to explore the local waters  More...

Ermones: We don't know what Ulysses may have seen when he stepped ashore here, but today's visitor arrives at a tiny bay, all peb­bles and sand, surrounded by hotels, taver­nas and green hills  More...

Ipsos: Youth and watersports - You'll see the wooden docks with their flags and banners, the jet skis and the colourful balloons before you turn off the main road  More...

Dassia beach: Luxury hotels, campsites, one of the best Club Meds in Europe, beach bars, tavernas and facilities of every imaginable kind make Dasia one of Corfu's most popular beaches  More...
Gouvia beach: Yachts and fish taverna - Yachtsmen will have certainly heard of Gouvia, which has one of the best-organ­ised marinas in Greece  More...
Benitses: Picturesque narrow cove, stretching out in front of the resort of the same name. Pebble beach, relatively few umbrellas and tourists, mainly English  More...

Messonghi & Moraitika: Seaside hotels with their own private water­fronts, pebble beaches with organised facili­ties, tourists turning brown on their recliners, enjoying the water sports or learning how to scuba dive

Paramonas: Solitary - The deserted landscape offers a wild beauty to this beach. Two or three tavernas and a handful of rooms to let surround the long, sandy, pebbly shoreline  More...

Paleokastritsa: Small bays, deep green water, bare rocks thrusting out of the sea (can you see Ulysses' vessel, turned to stone?), verdant slopes reflected in the waters, gorgeous grottoes just waiting to be explored ...

Sidari: Lacy, sculptured rocks, small fjords, stone "recliners", canals and natural pools. It is not by chance that Sidari has been called the "Canal d' Amour", and has become a trade­mark of Corfu  More...

Agios Georgios Pagon: Fun and games in the afternoon waves, windsurfing, long dives into the clear cold waters (no connection however to its name, "Pagon", which means ice, taken from the nearby village of Pagoi), fresh fish and lobster spaghetti  More...

Agios Spiridonas: (A ride on the laggon) Sunbathing on the pebble beach, a walk by the lagoon, Sunday picnics en famille, organ­ised hiking excursions

Kalamaki: (For beach tennis and water play) If what you like is walking on the beach, a game of beach tennis and playing in the water, then this is the place for you  More...

Astrakeri: (Shallow and quiet) Endless sand beach with no special features, shortly before Roda. The sea is very shallow and children love it (unless it's windy which is fairly common here on the north shore)  More...

Roda & Acharavi: (Family resorts) Luxury hotels set in gardens that run right down to the beach, waterfront tavernas and beach bars, colourful umbrellas, beach sports, water slides  More...

Avlaki: (Canoes and cooked dishes) The first pebble beach you come to after Kassiopi. Small bay, well-treed, but its beach is of no particular beauty  More...

Agios Stefanos: There is a cosmopolitan air about Agios Stefanos, with the yachts at their moorings, the fish restaurants and the foreigners who walk down to the picturesque little port from the surrounding villas  More...

Kerasia beach: (Pine-clad) You may not find any cherry trees here (which is what the name means), but you'll certainly see plenty of pines  More...

Kouloura: Driving down the winding road towards Kouloura is an exercise in will power: the spectacular enclosed bay dotted with yachts and cypresses will certainly try to drag your attention away from the steering wheel ...

Kalami: (Out of a Novel) The white villa where the English writer Lawrence Durrell lived with his wife is the principal point of interest on this shore  More...

Agni: Do pines grow on pebbles? Of course they do! And so do fish tavernas. A jaunt as far as the delightful little harbour of Agni, between Kaminaki and Kalami, will be enough to convince you of the fact  More...

Kaminaki: (Seashells and armbands) If you don't like the sound of children's voices, you'd better not come to Kaminaki  More...

Nissaki: (Tiny) The name means "islet", and the diminutive was not chosen by chance  More...

Chalikounas: (Cedarsand sand dunes) The narrow strip of sand that separates beautiful Lake Korissia from the sea marks the boundary of the island's most exotic beach   More...

Agios Georgios (Argirades): Beach sports and travel agents, simple rooms to let and hotel-villages, fish tavernas and Chinese restaurants - this large beach below the traditional village of Argirades has everything ...
