Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

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.

  • Every time I come to visit several times in Corfu Paleokastritsa. This is the most favorite place on the island! Beautiful beaches, gorgeous views, nice tasty restaurants) all proceeded on foot, along and across)

  • There are, perhaps, two beautiful locations in Corfu is Paleokastritsa, and Cape Kanoni near airport and Murine island. Paleokastritsa chose due to the species. Here is a great choice where you can stroll: monastery, offering beautiful views, then you can climb on foot (or take a taxi, and then descend on foot as we did) to the mountain village of Lakones. Water in Paleokastritsa in July was more or less tolerant, but three days was ice that pull the body.
