A very tourist place. Nice in off season, but in high season it gets very tourist. The good thing is the facilities (lots of hotels, shops and restaurants) and the location (only 8 km from Corfu Town, bus every hour). The beach is pebbled, avoid in the day because it gets too crowded but great for night swimming. The lights of the beach bars at night create a romantic atmosphere to walk by the beach and swim.

The village with the best sunset in Corfu!!! It is located on the slopes of a hill, almost in the centre of the island. The village itself is not very tourist, but there are two beaches near Pelekas (Agios Gorgis and Pelekas beach) that are among the most tourist places in Corfu. There you will find lots of hotels, seaside taverns and watersports. Very busy in high season, but the landscape close to Pelekas is very green and beautiful. A couple of km north, there is the Valley of Ropa with a large golf ground.

Corfu is a beautiful island that becomes more and more exciting as you get to know it better. I would definitely suggest a visit to village Benitses! We took the bus number 6 from the Town to Benitses, gets you there easily and fast. Benitses is a fishing village full with contrasts, since it mixes mountain and sea, fishing village and tourist resort, traditional houses and modern hotel buildings.
Another fact about Benitses, which seemed quite tourist crowded in August, is the big number of Italian tourists. Even if you are not the type of tourist that visits museums, you definitively need to visit the Sea Museum in Benitses. The ticket costs 4 euros, not that expensive in my opinion, especially considering that this is the biggest Sea Museum in Europe. The museum has many thousands of impressive and rare species of shells, corals and sharks! The exhibits are coming from all over the world, with many species from the Indian, Pacific and Mediterranean Sea. There are many available souvenirs at the exit, along with shells for collectors. Nice place and fun to visit.
You will find many ohter beautiful villages too all over Corfuand mostly in the southern side. The best beaches for me were located on the north and the best villlages on the south. Agioi Deka and Agios Mathias were great among their lush greenery. If you walk a bit in the forest of Agios Mathias, you will see a nice tavern on top of a hill. Excellent food and the best view, even better than Paleokastritsa!

Corfu Town will remind you of Venice is many corners. This is actually not surprising as the Venetians built it following their architecture. Walk along the narrow paths, visit the many churches you will find on your way, get into the museums, enjoy the sunset from the highest point of the old fortress. A coffee at Liston is a must, this is probably the most photographed place in Corfu town. I was impressed that there is a gorgeous cricket ground right next to Liston, but they told me that this is a remain from the British rule in the 18th century.

Benitses is a very noisy and crowded tourist resort. Most Italian tourists go there, in contrast to the English who prefer north Corfu and the Greeks who mostly stay at Gouvia. Anyway, the village itself is fine, very picturesque. With white houses and old people, paved streets and traditional groceries. The beach is fine, but you will certainly find better beaches on Corfu. If you go to Benitses, there are two things you must do: eat at the taverns in the waterfront and certainly go to the sea museum. Do not forget that the majestic Achilleion Palace is also closeby.
