Porto Timoni Beach (Twin Beach)
The beach of Porto Timoni sits below the cliffside village of Afionas. Still something of a hidden gem, access is either by a walk of around 20 minutes with good shoes from the village’s main square or by boat from Agios Georgios or similar nearby resorts.
Made up of pebbles rather than sand, what makes Porto Timoni special is the fact it is double-sided, comprising two separate beaches separated by a ridge of Mediterranean shrubs. Sitting on a thin neck of land that connects to the Akra Arilla peninsula, both face out into the Ionian Sea, with one facing Agios Georgios and the other Mathraki island.
Located on the western coast of Corfu, Porto Timoni is a relatively quiet beach and lacks facilities. You’ll need to bring everything you need with you, including food and water. However, the clear waters here are good for snorkelling, with little chance both bays will be murky, while the sunset can be enjoyed from the western-facing beach. Remember to bring a torch to help with the route back if your intention is to witness dusk settle.
