To escape the tourist routine, hit up Rovinia beach for its untouched scenery. White rocky cliffs round the edges of the beach, a sharp contrast to the clear turquoise waters. Where the cave-like rocks offer shade, the beach is largely open and sun soaked. The closest accommodation is in Liapades, where you can hike to this beach; you can also access it by car.
One of the most popular (and therefore noisy) beaches on Corfu is Paleokastritsa’s main beach. The rounded bay is nestled in the picturesque village, taverns resorts, bars and restaurants drawing in huge crowds. The Monastery of the Virgin is another major attraction overlooking the sandy bay, inviting boats into the harbor.
Less beach and more secret cove, Glyko is probably my favorite nook on Corfu. A small sand bar hidden within rough terrain, its wild beauty keeps me going back. Chill your feet at the sparkling waters and bask in silence after a busy week. You can access it through Liapades on foot.
There are so many more beaches and not enough time. But these? Definitely worth the drive.
