Paleokastritsa, located on the northwest coast of Corfu, is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages of Corfu. It consists of six different small shores and rocky beaches with crystal blue seawater. The sloping saltwater in Paleokastritsa and the open sea ensure a very pleasant cooling from the hot sun. It is advisable to come early, since the narrow pebble beaches fill up quickly in the summer.

Beaches

Discover the many beaches of the area, as Paradise beach, also known as Chomis. Or Marmara beach, Liniodoro beach, Rovinia beach, Limni beach, Stelari beach, and Kasteli beach. All of them are beautiful crystal clear bays and beaches with brilliant colors of seawater. Along the way, you can see the lion’s head in a rock, the blue eye, and the St. Nicolas and Nausica caves.

The bays are filled with terraces and (fish) restaurants with the specialty of the town being lobster. A road, full of souvenir shops, runs along the bay to the monastery on a 200 m high rock. The monastery of the Panayia Theotokos was built in 1255 and was mostly in use in the 18th and 19th centuries.

In the courtyard, you find a wishing well, with a former library that is set up as a souvenir shop. In the middle of that space, you find an enormous 30m long backbone of a dinosaur — an awe-inspiring sight. To the right of the courtyard is the church with an extensive collection of late-Byzantine icons.
