Corfu Benitses

General information

Benitses in eastern Corfu is a village stretching along a large area of the island! Nowadays both a place of relaxation and lively partying, Benitses is home to about 800 residents, showcasing traditional designs and picturesque alleyways while also housing an ancient mansion with Roman Baths and the sandy Benitses Beach, ideal for a quick swim or watersport experience! In addition, many of the village’s inhabitants are self-made fishermen due to Benitses being located by the seashore!

The village used to be one of the first resorts in Corfu, mostly back in the 1970s and 1980s, before falling out of favor. Regardless, Benitses is still quite a developed area, featuring a plethora of tourist facilities, such as many restaurants, beachside bars, supermarkets, pastry shops, rent-a-car services, a small-sized marina, and KTEL bus stops connecting the village to Corfu Town! There is also an abundance of hotel rooms, holiday homes, and villas, enough for every budget and preference

    Gorgeous villages on the south
    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!

    Fine village but very crowded
    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.
