The best resorts for families with children should be those that provide safety, beaches where the sea deepens slowly and waters remain almost always calm, able to offer some activities for children, resorts near children’s playgrounds, and places providing relaxing holidays for the rest of the family.

So, according to our opinion, Agios Georgios Pagon, Arillas, Acharavi and Roda, Kassiopi, Sidari, Benitses, Messonghi, and Paleokastritsa are the 8 Best Areas in Corfu for families and couples.

Another good family beach is close to Agios Georgios.

Benitses may lack the beautiful beaches that you can find elsewhere but it is a very safe resort and gathers many advantages.

It has beautiful scenery combining mountains and sea and it is very close to the town of Corfu.

Benitses has the richest variety of restaurants, a low-key but pleasant nightlife without the hassle of drunk youngsters, a large playground for children at the center of the village, and a sea museum that will be loved by children.

Benitses is close to the best beaches on the west coast, in reality, it is a center for excursions to the rest of Corfu island as well as to the Greek mainland.

It has the second large yachting marina in Corfu, and the mooring, by the time, is free!

It is also very close to Achilleion palace.

Here nobody has to worry about a parking lot because there is plenty of parking area, more than any other resort on the island.


Messonghi river

Messonghi is 10 miles to the south of Benitses and next to a river and Moraitika village with which they share the same beach.

With large hotels and plenty of small bars and taverns along the beach.

Messonghi has the largest and safer beach with the shallowest waters on the island, they remain shallow even hundreds of yards after the coast.

Therefore maybe is the Best choice for families with children.

Also is the only resort on the east coast with a sandy beach.

A very safe resort for children and families, although with little freezing water due to an underwater stream.

For some people, it is the nicest resort in Corfu, with 5 main beaches inside the village and many remote hidden beaches around, 2 round-shaped capes separating the beaches, and some stunning views from the above mountain village of Lakones.

Also, a large port in which many yachts are mooring.

We must mention Aqualand, a large water park, a few miles from Paleokastritsa in the interior of the island, loved by small and older children.

Also, many more places are suitable for family holidays in Corfu, like Saint George in the south on the southwest coast, GlyfadaAgios Gordios and Pelekas in the middle west, Ipsos and Dasia on the East, Nissaki, and the whole northeast side of the island are also good choices for relaxing family holidays in Corfu.

These are the largest, but of course, there are many more destinations suitable for families, scattered around the island.

What is the nicest part of Corfu?

With the clearest waters, the best remote beaches, the best views from above the mountains, the most diverse coastline, the best caves, and underwater scenes, there is no doubt that the nicest part of Corfu is in and around Paleokastritsa.

Island hop

Corfu, despite what others believe, gives you the opportunity to island-hop, maybe not at the large degree of the Aegean islands but there are many small island clusters around Corfu which you can visit easily.

The Diapontian islands at the Northwest and Paxos and Antipaxos at the South are very close to Corfu, with daily transportation, they can offer exotic experiences, and are very good choices for families.
