“A great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

This is a cosy little beach and a great place to spend sunny days and warm evenings. Corfu can be travelled around quite quickly so it's good to do a tour and find out where the good places are. There are some nice cafes around too.

“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Truly stunning surrounds and boat tours (yellow submarine) are worth every cent! Most picturesque place I have ever visited and the first time my boyfriend has ever said 'I could live here' proves the pure beauty.

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The beach is nice, but I liked Kassiopi more. Maybe it was because of the weather, I don't know. But the monastery of Paleokastritsa is amazing.

“Everything I expected from a Mediterranean beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The sand is white, the pebbles will hurt your feet and the water is the colour of turquoise.

Restaurants front right onto the sand. When we went in April, it was just warming up. The small one was determined to swim and play on the sand, so we were able to watch her (on the sand) from the comfort of a table at a restaurant. Much retsina was consumed (the small one was safe at all times, I'd like to add) in the sun.

The water was a little cool, it being early spring, which kept the small one out of it.

At one stage, sheep/goat herders were moving their flock across the far end of the beach. A proper Greek experience for the tourists. Thank you, anonymous herdsmen!

“quite stoney.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The beaches are quite stoney, wear some beach shoes, once you are in the water it's fine. There are several beaches and coves to explore, board a small boat for a spectacular view of Paleo.
