There are actually a few beaches that make up Paleokastritsa on Corfu’s northwestern coast. A series of coves separated by cypress-topped limestone headlands and caressed by the clear blues of the Ionian Sea.

The most popular beach, and the one that is synonymous with Paleokastritsa is Agios Spyridon (Not to be confused with Agios Spiridon on the east coast). Awarded the coveted Blue Flag award for cleanliness and first class facilities this is a perfect family beach.

Set in a crescent shaped bay and protected by high cliffs the beach is overlooked by the Monastery of Paleokastritsa. It’s a sheltered spot so the sea is usually ideal for swimming and super clear, so bring a snorkel. You’ll also find a couple of caves to explore.

It does get busy on Paleokastritsa Beach, but the beauty is you can just take in the view and head around the corner to the next beach.
