Welcome to Ermones

Ermones

Holidays to Ermones take you to one of Corfu’s quieter locations. Ermones is all about the beach and beautiful surroundings, although the islands capital, Corfu Town is only 20 minutes away.

Ermones takes you away from the bustle of Corfu’s busier resorts to a pretty little bay on the island’s west coast. The main attraction here is the sand and shingle beach, which nestles at the foot of cypress clad green Corfu hills. Just a few feet from the sands you’ll find lcoal traditional Greek tavernas, along with holiday essentials such as bike and watersports rental shops.

The beach at Ermones is just 300 metres long, but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in beauty. Trees surround the bay, while rocks and shingle make it a dramatic landscape. Meanwhile, if sand is an absolute must, try Glyfada beach which is just 3 kilometres down the road. Glyfada is a long, sandy stretch and is one of the best beaches on the island.

Families and couples will enjoy the relaxed pace of life in this traditional Corfiot village. The beach is set in a beautiful bay and is 300 metres of rocks and shingle. For those seeking a sandy beach there is one in Glyfada 3km away.

Corfu Town is only about a 20 minute drive away where there is a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants as well as cobbled streets housing gift shops. There are many museums and churches to visit and the 16th Century fortress is one to see.

Corfu Airport is approximately 18 km away - transfer time about 25 minutes.
