Paleokastritsa

Paleokastritsa holidays

Known to have some of the best beaches on the island, Paleokastritsa is a hidden gem on Corfu’s west coast. On land, expect whitewashed buildings and lush green landscapes, while the bright-blue waters provide a striking contrast. For a sun-kissed Greek getaway, it’s the perfect choice.

Plenty of sunbathing spots

With six beaches and coves near the village, you’re spoilt for choice when deciding where to while away your days. Agia Triada is one of the most popular and you’ll certainly see why when you check out the crystal-clear water. For a quieter spot, head to hidden Lagrotta Bay.

Marvel at the monastery

Pass through olive groves and cypress trees to find Paleokastritsa Monastery. Overlooking the village, the Byzantine-style building dates back to the 13th century. Once inside, you’ll be amazed at the intricate sculptures and colourful paintings. You’ll also find a small museum and olive oil shop - it’s certainly worth the steep, uphill walk!

Day trip to Corfu Town

A 30-minute drive across the island will bring you to the capital, Corfu Town, where you can experience a thriving mix of cafés and restaurants and sample traditional Greek cuisine. Craving some culture? Wander the UNESCO-listed cobblestone streets of the Old Town, with its pastel-coloured Venetian buildings and unmissable historic sites.
