Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

#1 of 389 in Things to do in Corfu
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
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.

  • Nice rocky beach. Beautiful scenery. Very touristy place. Not a lot of sunbeds so you better go early if you want one. Loads of parking space.
  • best view
  • This beach simply does not exist! The waters in August are not as icy as they are famous If you have access to a boat, another Corfu with fairytale beaches will be revealed to you However, even from the mainland, the beach is fantastic crystal clear with small stones that become sand in some places Ideal for diving with the mask!
