Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

Beach
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. Plan to see Paleokastritsa Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Paleokastritsa trip itinerary maker.

  • Unique landscape and fantastic views especially from the monastery intended. with 2 beaches and very large parking
    View original
  • This place although small is well worth a visit. You can get a boat taxi around the the bay you could also get the submarine around the bay.  more »
  • A succession of coves and beautiful panoramas mini... But no village, no Center, no possibility to walk less than walking on the road. Recommend but out of season.
