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.

  • The beach is beautiful, it's to do if one comes on Corfu. On the other hand, too many people, impossible to expand on the beach and yet we were in June! Boat tours are a bit expensive for visits to 30 minutes. Free parking nearby. The visit of the small monastery is also for the view and the wonderful gardens.

  • The picturesque Bay, a beautiful monastery on the Hill, the cleanest sea, a paradise for divers. All vokrugblagouhaet Mediterranean aromas. It seems that a lot of tourists, but actually they do not disturb the peace and harmony of the place. Recommend!

  • Either sit on the beach or take a wonderful boat trip. There are some lovely bars/restaurants to have some wonderful seafood and just watch the world go by.
