A Blissful Vacation in Paleokastritsa, Corfu

A Blissful Vacation in Paleokastritsa, Corfu, Corfu, Greece (B)

Paleokastritsa is one of the most beautiful resort villages in Corfu with everything you could want or need for the perfect vacation. A day trip to Paleokastritsa from Corfu Town can cost upwards of €200-300. So why not cut out the middleman and just stay on the bay? Our blissful vacation in Paleokastritsa was perhaps the most relaxing and enjoyable five days I’ve ever spent anywhere.

Paleokastritsa is divided into several cliff-flanked bays, each featuring gorgeous beaches and perfect swimming conditions in the clear blue waters. Each of the beaches is conveniently accessible from the main coastal road, though staying at an accommodation on the water saved us a lot of walking uphill. Via a stretch of road that is just a little over 2 km, you can access Agia Triada Beach, Spiros Beach, Alipa Beach, Agios Spiridon Beach, and Agios Petros Beach.

Any beach that can’t be easily accessed on foot from Paleokastritsa can be reached by water taxi which can cost as little as €10-15 depending on how far you want to go. Some of the popular stops on the coast include the double-sided Limni Beach, which is accessible from two opposing bays. Further south, you’ll find the so-called Paradise Beaches of Chomi and Stelari, which are only accessible by boat and are basically deserted. The great thing about these beaches is the ability to enjoy a secluded and beautiful stretch of beach. The downside, of course, is not having simple access to bathrooms or beach bars where you can order a drink or a snack. Stelari does at least sometimes have umbrellas for rent so you don’t have to die in the hot sun. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
