7 Beautiful Beaches In Corfu

Kalami

Kalami Bay, a horseshoe-shaped bay with protected waters and pebbled coastlines lined with olive and pine trees and beautiful spring flowers, draws families and sailing ships.

Barbati

Long, narrow Barbati beach is at the foot of Corfu's largest mountain, Pantokrator Massif, at 2,972 ft (906m). Barbati has white flat pebbles and clear, aqua-colored waters. 

Kaminaki

Simple cottages in hues of pale yellow and salmon huddle around Kaminaki beach in the homonymous hamlet, which has barely changed over the years.

Glyfada

Framed by a verdant hilly backdrop dotted with holiday apartments and two hotels, long, sandy Glyfada is one of Corfu’s busiest beaches.

Kontogialos

A winding road descends gently through Pelekas village down to Kontogialos beach, past olive groves cascading down the hillside.

Issos

Issos beach may be the island's most stunning. This wild length of fine, golden sand is 1.5 miles (2.5 km) long below towering, rolling dunes.

Halikounas

Seemingly endless Halikounas beach, separated from Issos by a small rocky cape, snakes along some two miles (three kilometres) and backs onto Lake Korission.
