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.

  • One of the most beautiful panorama of the monastery. The mandatory számáráa Durrellt lovers go here and in the evening to see my family and other animals. On the beach with white pebbles are a bit awkward but it's beautiful.

  • Wow! What a wonderful view! Water is translucent and the place is very clean. It is also worth to walk nearby to have different points of view of the cliffs overlooking the place. I'm happy to have made this visit in low season to have had this wonderful view to myself!
