Beaches in Corfu Town

Beaches in Corfu Town, Corfu, Greece (B)

So you decided to go to Corfu and you’re looking for a place to get some sun and splash around in the Ionian Sea? Hopefully you’re reading this before you arrive in Corfu and not when you’re already sweating buckets in the sweltering and mostly beachless Corfu Town. While Corfu Town beaches may not be the most spectacular, they do exist and they can even be enjoyable if you know where to find them.

The bad news is that the best beaches in Corfu are not in the capital. If the extent of your planning of a beachy Corfu vacation was to fly into CFU or ferry into the port, then you should probably keep researching. Many of the most popular beach towns are on the north and west part of the island. These include Sidari, Paleokastritsa, Glyfada, Acharavi, and Kassiopi. To the south, there are stretches of beach in Benitses and Kavos, which is one of the most popular party towns in Corfu.

While I can’t vouch for all of the beach villages in Corfu, I did spend a few days in Paleokastritsa and it is an absolute paradise compared to what passes for a beach in Corfu Town. It has several scenic beaches surrounded by lush greenery and dramatic cliffs which are accessible on foot. From Paleokastritsa, you can also get to several remote beaches tucked under the rocks that are inaccessible except by boat. So you can imagine that after experiencing that, the beach scene in Corfu Town left something to be desired. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
