Some of our favourite beaches in Corfu

Battaria and Kanoni – Kassiopi

An absolutely sparking sea with flat stone platforms for sunbathing on one side of the small peninsular, and on the other, a horseshoe pebble bay.

Avlaki – Kassiopi

The joy of Avlaki beach is in its clean waters and rural backdrop. The beach is a pebble beach in a perfect crescent bay.

There are two charming tavernas, both typically Greek.

Both ends of Avalki Bay have rocky tails, perfect for snorkelling and crab fishing.

 

Almyros – Acharavi

A long stretch of sandy beach, completely tranquil location. There are three or four taverns to be found along its length. It’s the sort of beach where one can imagine a white stallion cantering along its margin.

Canal D’Amour

The beach is sandy and fringed by amazing lime-stone formations, more like carefully sculptured marble than natural erosion. The Canal d’Amour is only a tiny area of Sidari Beach itself. There are plenty of water-sport facilities.

Ayios Spiridonas

A relatively small sandy beach with a couple of tavernas. There are peddalos and sun-beds. The waters gradually increase in depth and so it is a good choice for children.

St George (Ayios Georgis) Págon

The two kilometre stretch of sandy beach can be found between Cape Arílla and Angelokastro on the north-west side of Corfu. The surrounding country-side is sparsely populated and so even at the height of the tourist season the beach of St George is peaceful. The nearest villages apart from St George are Pagi, Krini and Makrades.

The beach has sunbeds and some water-sports.

 

 Kerasia

Kerasia means ‘cherry tree’ and indeed there were a number of cherry orchards around at one time. Kerasia is a very secluded pebble beach on the north-east coast. It is accessed via the fishing village of Agios Stephanos through a winding lane and via boat which certainly earns it the description of ‘off-the-beaten track’. The beach has one taverna, a favourite among the local population which has been in the same family for a number of years.

 

Kalami

A pebble beach on the east coast of Corfu. The surrounding scenery is quite spectacular with the hazy mountains of Albania just across the gulf. Kalami Beach is famous not only for the beauty of its setting but also as the home of the the Durrell family; the authors Gerald and Lawrence Durrell spent some of their childhood years here and the people, places and experiences of this quiet corner of the world  inspired the books ‘My Family and Other Animals’ by Gerald Durrell and ‘Prospero’s Cell’by Lawrence Durrell. The White House, where the Durrells lived, still stand and is at the south end of the beach.
