Rovinia Beach lies on the west coast of Corfu at Paleokastritsa Bay, close to the village of Liapades. Both secluded and enclosed, it has coarse sand to its rear and smooth shingle towards the lapping waves, neither of which are particularly painful to walk on in bare feet. What’s more, the almost white pebbles create a staggering contrast to the lush blues of the sea and the dark greens of the wooded slopes that ring it. These slopes provide some natural shade before the sun gets too high.
While relatively deep, Rovinia Beach is also quite short in length, which means it doesn’t take too many visitors to make it crowded. It gets at its busiest during the high season, when a boat arrives with drinks and ice creams. The rest of the year you should expect to bring everything you need with you, as there are no permanent facilities here.
Rovinia beach can be reached from the nearby beach of Gefyra by boat, or on foot along a footpath through the vegetation, having left any car in the small car park part of the way to the beach. If travelling with little ones, be aware that the waters off Rovinia Beach can be a little cooler than elsewhere on the island because of the currents that come ashore here, and that the shallows increase in depth rapidly a few metres from the shore.
