Overview
A superb beach location suitable for families and couples wanting a nice laid back holiday with a mixture of lazy days and a very good choice of dining out at night.

Location              West Corfu
Corfu Airport  15 km
Travel Time     20 minutes by car or taxi


Accommodation
There is a hotel on the beach hillside but there are also many apartments and rooms that stretch from the road leading down to the beach front itself.

Food & Drink
The resort is one main street which leads down to the beach with Tavernas, restaurants and shops either side. When you reach the end you will find many Tavernas to the left that go all the way along the wide area of golden sand. It is here that you can watch the beautiful sunsets each evening.

Beach & Swimming
As you descend the steep winding road that leads to the resort the views of the sea open up and you can see the beach and the village below.

Nearby
There is car and bike hire for those wanting to explore the Island and a bus service too. In the centre there is also a 24 hour taxi rank if you want to visit the villages that are close by. There is a doctor here too.

Many of the people who work here live in the nearby village of Sinarades which has a traditional folklore museum, a pharmacy and a couple of Tavernas.

Other villages within walking distance are Pendati and Kato Garouna. These walks are uphill so you need to be reasonably fit but once you reach the villages and see the views it will all be worth it. Kato Garouna is where the paragliders jump off the rock and slowly descend and land on the Agios Gordios beach right next to the sunbathers.

The added bonus of these walks, are that it is all downhill on the way back.
