Information about Messonghi - Corfu

Messonghi is a small peaceful resort situated about 1Km. south of the resort of Moraitika. It is quiet and peaceful with the majority of facilities all within 100mtrs. of the beach. The terrain is relatively flat with no steep hills to climb on those hot summer days. Olive groves populate almost every scrap of unused land. The roads in and around the village are not major through roads and therefore traffic is relatively infrequent.
Messonghi is ideal for families and couples seeking a laid back relaxing holiday in a quiet Greek village atmosphere with all amenities locally available. However if it's fast nightlife you are after the busier resort of Moraitika is only a 15-minute walk or short taxi ride away.

Messonghi beach is sandy, with unobstructed views of mainland Greece to the east and south and Albania to the north. Magical in the evenings especially during the full moon.
Sunbeds: Plenty of sun beds and umbrellas for hire along the length of the beach.
Facilities: Changing rooms and showers available and plenty of tavernas along the beach where toilets can be used, it is always nice to buy a drink when you use the facilities.
Cleanliness and Urchins: The beach is clean and the water is crystal clear - ideal for snorkeling. There are no urchins on the main beach but if snorkeling further along coast you can come across them from time to time, harmless unless you stand on them!
Water sports:  Paragliding, banana boat, ringos available on the beach at the Hotel Christina. Pedal boats etc. for hire at a number of locations.
