If you are a free diver this place is plenty of beautiful caves all around the coast. The short tour in boat is a bit pricy and you don't enjoy without a swim ( also is not eco-friendly, I felt the smell of gasoline at all the time, disgusting) .. About the beach, is too small and stuffed with tourist,... More

In August 2014 my girlfriend and I went to this famous beach in Corfu and we suddenly understood that it was too and too famous! It was totally OVERCROWDED especially by Italian families (I'm Italian) with kids and they always scream and shout... While I deeply recommend the boat trip along the coastline from Paleo to Paradise Beach, there are... More

I visited the town of Paleokastritisa in mid-November. The town and surrounding beaches are absolutely breath-taking, even in the cloudy weather. The beaches are sandy (instead of rocky like many places in Corfu) and good-sized. However, nothing was open in the town - not even a taverna or cafe for a cup of coffee. So if you go during the...

My husband and I spent the day here whilst we stopped in Corfu during our cruise. It is an absolutely stunning beach with beautiful turquoise water. You can buy snorkelling head gear (which the hubby did) and he raved on about how much sea life he saw, etc. There are even little dingy boats you can hire and be taken... More

The beach is small but very beautiful and the waters are crystal clear perfect for snorkeling, there is shops and bars nearby and its safe to leave your things on the beach while you go for lunch. You can get boats to other beaches and to visit the caves. The bay is set in a beautiful landscape. the area has... More

If you are looking to swim in clear blue water and see a lot of fish.....Paleokastrista is perfect. I would recommend renting a paddle boat with a water slide. You can take the boat into a cave, that is close to the beach, and see stunning aquatic life. Plus, the landscape around the bay is lovely. The water here tends... More

Some are busy, some are well-hidden. If you're staying locally, it's best to avoid the overcrowded beaches and lunch spots at the end of the road, so head back up the road and look for a way down to one of the earlier bays. And if you're dropped off for lunch, a 5-minute walk will reward you with a cheaper... More

This resort is beautiful. Not a huge beach but nestled between the hills the view from your sunbed is breathtaking! The boat trip to see the caves is fun and interesting and well worth the 10 euros. Getting into the sea to swim is a little tricky with large rocks on sea bed,too difficult for me to venture in ,happy... More

Well with the trip on public transport. This is a must see! Lots of character, views are gorgeous. Take time to have a walk round & enjoy a drink in one of the quaint bars.

Definitely drive up to the monastery for this beach, there are beautiful views up there and you can see how crystal clear and turquoise the water is from above. There are also boat rides that you can take to see the caves around the beach. It's fairly cheap and fun to see; the men who drive the boats know quite... More
