Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

4.1
#1 of 215 in Things to do in Corfu
Allegedly the place where the mythical encounter between Odysseus and Nausicaa took place, Paleokastritsa Beach sits lapped by the deep blue Ionian Sea and ringed by lush vegetation. A large rugged rock, considered by many locals to be Odysseus' petrified ship, sticks out of the water just off the coastline. One side of this rock curves like an extended sail of an ancient galley, attracting curious divers to investigate what lies below the surface of the water. Swim, snorkel, or bask on the sand, but also leave a little time to visit a 13th century monastery located on the rocky hill just above the beach.

    If you're on the island of Corfu for your summer vacation, you can not go to this place! Located quite in the Centre of the island, with a chance to get there via boats. In August, go early because the beaches and parking spaces are a bit rosicati, lido Beach, the lido both costa €8. As for the perchéggio is free. Sea and fantastic backdrops
