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.

Corfu Town

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.

Dassia

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.

Gouvia

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.

Kassiopi

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

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

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.

Kontokali

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

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.

Arillas

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 and canoes.
