Corfu hidden paradise beaches

Beaches between Paleokastritsa and Ermones

Under Paleokastritsa and to the south, the mountainous area of the west coast continues down to Ermones and further south until it joined with the mountain of Agion Deka in the center of the island.

It consists of high cliffs that end abruptly on the west coast and cut off the beaches from the mainland, so access is difficult and is mainly by the sea, but as a result of this, here we have perhaps the most beautiful hidden beaches of the island.

All these beaches are sandy.

They are so isolated and difficult to reach that most people, even the locals, ignore them or they never visit them.

Starting from north to south we find the following:

Liapades beach

Liapades is a beach with turquoise waters located on the first small bay east of Paleokastritsa, just a short two kilometers distance from it.

Crystal clear waters in stunning scenery.

It is the beach of Liapades mountainous village located about 400 meters to the east and slightly south at the interior of the island.

Rovinia beach

Greenery in an idyllic landscape, isolation and blue waters characterize one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, it is the beach of Rovinia.
Just short of Liapades Beach is located across from Paleokastritsa accessible, like most here, only from the sea.

Limni beach

Yet another beautiful and secluded beach below the village of Liapades, accessible mainly by sea and by land for good climbers.

It has the same morphology as the double beach of Porto Timoni in northwestern Corfu, there is a round peace of earth joined to the island by a small strip, this strip is the beach.


Paradise beach only accessible by sea, south and west of the village of Liapades.

Beach Paradise

Beach lives up to its name, and deserted paradise only accessible from the sea, located slightly south of beach Liniodoros.

The largest beach of the area, yet another sandy paradise.

During the night the sand is illuminated only by starlight and slightly by the distant lights of Paleokastritsa.

The stars gave it`s Italian name, Stelari by the word Stela which is the Star in Italian.

It has all the features and more of previous beaches, idyllic, beautiful and moreover gives a sense of grandeur due to the scenery with the towering rocks.
Accessible only from the sea.

Another secluded, idyllic beach near Ermones and the village of Giannades, accessible only by sea.

Paradise does not exist, it is here on earth and is the island itself

Corfu Easter 2017

Easter 2017

Easter for the Orthodox church this year is a little early, on April 16th, so the Sunday of Thomas is on April 9th and the other holidays are on Friday 14th and the second day of Easter on the 17th, the other related to Easter celebrations will continue until the Sunday after Easter on April 23.

Roughly events almost every year have become traditions followed almost the same order.
Top are those of the falls of large pots from the windows of buildings around Liston in the morning of Holy Saturday during the so-called first resurrection.
This Custom hapens around the island but has a special beauty in the Esplanade Square and the point of Pentofanaro next to Liston, due to the environment and the presence of big crowd.
Also the ceremony of Resurrection at Sunday midnight to Sunday, every year in the Upper Square.

See these and many other events of Holy Week with the details here.

Benitses of 2017 with the drone of our friend Nektarios.
For his first attempt as he claims, it is very good and especially the montage even better, although he is using only the fade effect on changes.
We are confident that in the next video his imagination will help and have amazing results.
