Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

#1 of 329 in Things to do in Corfu
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 crowd, no CROWDS! Very beautiful, but it is difficult to see them-you need to wait for the time when there will be less tourists! With regard to the taverns nearby price inadequate, not to say quality, not ventured. Were in 2014 (hit the break, 3:00 wait not steel), visited in 2017. In fact, there are many monasteries in Corfu, where you'll be alone, you make the shrine and leave with them one on one! And another will or Lokum, or cookies.
