Fun but crowded

Category: Corfu Glyfada


A gorgeous beach with soft sand and crystal water. It has a fun atmosphere and some beach bars with refreshing cocktails. Bad thing: it gets very crowded in high season. The bay next to Glyfada is Myrtiotissa beach, a partly nudist spot. The road to Glyfada is very narrow but through lush greenery.

Very long beach and very crowded in high season. This is one of the most tourist spots in Corfu, with many hotels, shops, restaurants and beach bars. Edem Bar is great: it is located at the beach of Dassia, nice music, relaxing atmosphere and a perfect spot for night swimming. In the daytime, it gets very busy, mostly by families with kids.

Bit secluded after sunset

Glyfada beach guarantees amazing family holidays. I took my wife, son and daughter to a lovely Greek beach vacation this summer. We had been planning about it for over a year and I wanted to make sure that no mistake was made. We chose to stay in self catering apartment for a week near Glyfada beach. The two bedroom apartment was basic, but it had a balcony with amazing view of the sea. We had to walk for ten minutes to get to the beach. The days at the beach were great for swimming and my kids enjoyed a lot. I played water ski while my wife rented sea bicycle. Adrenaline pumping water sports are always our favorite. We cooked our breakfast everyday and had lunch and dinner in different taverns. Mostly, price was reasonable. Many bars were filled with English tourists. We did take some day trip to close regions, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only bad thing is that the road to Glyfada is so narrow and windy and that the place gets pretty secluded after sunset. Next to Glyfada, there is another wonderful beach Myrtiotissa, partly nudist.

Great for laidback vacation

Category: Corfu Kalami


We are an elderly couple and we were looking for a laidback vacation, so Kalami suited us greatly. A pretty village that provided us with exactly what we wanted. We didn't want a village that is filled with tourist activities. Kalami has pretty much no roads and there were practically no cars. It is a very humble village that is left unaffected by mass tourism. The beach was pebbly which I loved. My husband was happy because sand simply sticks on you. The beach was clear and there were two main activities we did, swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed our meals at the local taverns. The hosts were gorgeous and we ate some fish dishes made with fresh caught fish. A couple of mini-markets were there along road from which we bought essential supplies. Really gorgeous place. Not recommended if you are looking for all night fun!

Take boats to remote beaches

Paleokastritsa of Corfu is absolutely gorgeous. We spent 4 glorious days there swimming in breathtakingly crystal clear waters and visiting secluded and beautiful beaches. Our hotel, the Akrotiri Beach Hotel, provided good accommodation and our room overlooked a beautiful bay. Only one bad thing, but I don't think it is a fault of the hotel: a couple of mornings we had no running water in the hotel, so water supply to the island seems to be lacking. For a tourist area this was unexpected.

There was a great supply of good restaurants and the area is within an easy drive (20 minutes) from CorfuTown. We ate out at different restaurants every night and the food and service was excellent everywhere we went. Recommended restaurants in the Paleokastritsa area include Nereidis (which included a greek fire dancing show), Nausica Restaurant and Limani Restaurant located near the Glass Bottom Boat pick up wharf. The local food was wonderful, we enjoyed white bread, grilled/baked fetta, stuffed tomatoes, moussaka and heaps of other Greek delights.

Take a taxi boat service and go to Paradise Beach. You will probably be the only ones there, so you will have the whole beautiful beach to yourselves. The beach at the end of the road at Paleokastritsa is also nice, at the point where you can hire paddleboats. Water at both beaches was amazing.

Ypsos in general

I have just come back from a week holiday in Ypsos Corfu, which I really enjoyed. It was a bit quite for mid June but then with the general state of the Euro and Economy that was to be expected. The village was really nice with a good beach and very clean and tidy. I stayed at the Yiannis hotel/apartments where the room was very comfortable and roomy, the staff were very good and nothing was too much trouble for them, the pool is big and good for people of all ages. The main part of the village is quite lively and there are plenty of restaurants to get a snack or dinner what ever you prefer as well as plenty of take a ways. The Phoebus restaurant was extremely good value for money with very helpful waiters and after a nice meal there are plenty of bars for you to choose from for a nice cold Mythos beer.

Funny sports to do

Although best beaches on Corfu are found on the northern part, Agios Gordis is one of the few beaches in the centre of the island worth to visit. The water is crystal and warm (opposed to Paleokastritsa beach where water is freezing) and you can do many sports there. I enjoyed Banana a lot! The ambience around the beach is so green and relaxing. Try traditional dishes in the taverns there, sofrito and patsitsada are the most famous dishes of Corfu.

Get tea tree oil to avoid mossies

Category: Corfu Agios Stefanos Avliotes


I have visited Corfu many times so I know the area inside out. We usually stay in the northern side, where the best beaches are to be found. Most people I know have been to Sidari village but this is not my cup of tea, it's full of clubs and teenagers strolling around drunken. I prefer San Stefano. Although it is a neat little vilage, it has everything you need (other than a chemist). People are very friendly, costs are still reasonable and the beach is first class. All restaurants were also fabulous, we paid regular visitors to Paradise, the Beachcombers and Nafsika Hotel, yummy. Just take 100% tea tree oil. Mossies don't like it and they won't bite you.

The most popular tourist spot

Paleokastritsa is the most popular tourist spot on Corfu, probably thanks to its delightful landscape and the clean beach. The beach may get cold some days but it is a great place to lay down on the pebbles and enjoy a day in the sun. Apart from swimming, Paleokastritsa is also famous for its Monastery on top of a hill. Just outside the monastery, there is a balcony with a canon from where you can take great photos.

Too noisy

Very crowded, especially in July and August. We go frequently to Corfu, almost every summer and have visited almost al beaches on the island. Agios Gordis has nice water and sandy coast but it is too noisy. There are a lot of hotels around, so you will find tourists from early in the morning till late in the evening. Safe for the children and the elderly,
however.
