There are many beaches on the island of Corfu – long sandy beaches and small secluded beaches with small pebbles, scattered in the bays and hidden among the rocks. The beaches of Corfu are magnificent and the island is a true seaside paradise. No wonder this Greek island is called “the island of beaches”. This, of course, is its main advantage and a magnet for tourists who want to relax on the beach.
The most beautiful beaches of Corfu are located in the west of the island in the area of the resort of Paleokastritsa, which is considered the most picturesque. The rocky coast with 6 bays of the Ionian Sea with clear blue water hides beautiful sandy and pebble beaches, as well as picturesque cliffs rising from the water. Some beaches are only accessible from the sea, so it is worth enjoying the area by cruising along the coast and relaxing on your chosen beach as a precaution. The most beautiful beach, accessible only from the sea, is Paradise Beach, surrounded by high cliffs and bathed in turquoise water.
Caves Blue caves and steep cliffs with breathtaking views are the highlight of the region.

The beautiful and large beach of Agios Stefanos with silky fine sand and a very gentle slope into the water is well equipped and easily accessible for tourists.
