Things to do

Some of the largest and most popular attractions can be found in this central-west region of Corfu Island. The area’s proximity to Corfu Town and a regular bus service make it easy to get to for visitors and locals alike.

Activities

Golf

Golf in Corfu is Golf as it should be – gorgeous weather, quiet and in a totally relaxing environment.
The course itself is flat and very easy to walk, no long walks between holes. Tee times are easy to come by and there are none of the dreaded course rangers.
The Corfu Golf course is 3.5km from Pelekas village

Aqua Land

Aqualand Water Park is 2.5km away

Silva Land

Silvaland Equestrian Centre is 3km away

Beaches

Some of the island’s best beaches awarded with Blue Flag status by the European Union, are also at easy reach. From south to north you might wish to visit the following:

Pelekas Beach (Kontogyalos)

Pelekas Beach is popular amongst Corfiots that take the short drive out for their afternoon swim. Nonetheless the crystal clear water, the soft sand and playful waves will most likely keep you coming back for more. You can easily walk down from Villa Pelekas but be ready for a steep climb back up. From here you can enjoy the setting sun down into the distant horizon. Remember to take your cameras.

Agios Gordios

Agios Gordios to the south has many shops, bars and restaurants including Mexican, Chinese and cocktail beach bars. It is mainly sandy though pebbles and rocks come and go with the tides. Rent a pedalo or a canoe and head for Poseidon’s Rock.

Gialiskari

Gialiskari is a small inlet that you can get to through the south end of Pelekas Beach. Although the beach itself is not grand the atmosphere created by the surrounding rocks and pine tree forest as well as the most friendly local taverna will make your visit worthwhile. It is quiet and serene even when other beaches are full. From here you can get a small boat along the coastline that is inaccessible by car and visit a small monastery that sits on top of a rock out at sea.

Glyfada

Glyfada is the largest beach and an all-time favourite. It is certainly worth your visit and many options for lunch or ice cream rather than dinner are available too.

Mirtiotissa

Mirtiotissa is Corfu Island’s official nudist beach with many people cramped into a relatively small stretch of sand. There is something magical about Mirtiotissa with its steep descent and peculiar rocks that cannot be explained in words that has people coming back to it from all over the world. The small monastery is also worth enduring the summer heat to walk to.

Ermones

Ermones is said to be the beach where Homer’s epic hero Ulysses is washed ashore on his way home to Ithaca. It is close to the Corfu Golf Club and has at least a couple of sea front restaurants. The beach itself is not as comfortable as those further south.
