Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa
(4.1/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Paleokastritsa is a paradise. Of course a boat renting a detail should not be overlooked for walking and plunge into the beautiful depths of caves and beautiful beaches. Off season we were accosted by rental boats. We have chosen less expensive, who also had the most beautiful boats. Follow-up of a small restaurant in Seaview height. Traders are very very very nice.

  • After visiting the monastery that overlooks the beach we went down, with my husband, on the beach ... There is a bar near the sea and after drinking wanted to do a boat trip to see the caves, however we had little time because we had to return to the port of Corfu to move up on the cruise ship. And while waiting to find the boat ready to take us around occurred the sore point, boatmen of truly rude, after having secured a visit to the cave for half an hour, upon leaving, however, tell us that they do not make requests for less than an hour, insisting with the equally let us Board the boat (too bad that we lost a coach to return to porto!) at last we checked out without seeing anything. In short, beautiful beach and water but be careful if you want to tour the caves

  • Plaža je lepa, ali ceo doživljaj narušava prevelika gužva. Treba se pripremiti i za temperaturu morske vode koja je znatno niža od uobičajene.
