Beaches South of Paleokastritsa (Video)
Under Paleokastritsa to the south, the mountainous area of the west coast of Corfu continues down to Ermones. And further south until it joined with the mountain of Agion Deka in the center of the island.
The wider Paleokastritsa is an area of exceptional natural beauty. 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 the most beautiful hidden beaches on the island.
Surprisingly all these beaches are not sandy but rather a mix of pebbles with little sand.
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:
1. Liapades beach
Liapades beach is also called Gefyra, a beach with turquoise waters. It is located on a small bay east of Paleokastritsa, just a short two kilometers distance from it.
Crystal clear waters on a pebble background in stunning scenery.
It is the beach of Liapades, a mountainous village located about 400 meters to the east and slightly south, on the interior of the island.
2. 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 from the sea or land via a small path…See more
3. 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, a round piece of the earth joined to the island by a small strip, this strip is the beach.
4. Iliodoros or Liniodoros
Next to a beautiful promenade of land in the sea, at the cape Heliodoros or Liniodoros there is a homonymous paradise beach with pebbles accessible only by the sea, south, and west of the village of Liapades.
5. Paradise Beach or Chomoi
Paradise beach lives up to its name, A deserted paradise only accessible from the sea, located slightly south of the beach of Liniodoros. It is the second size beach in the area and it looks so much the same as the neighboring beach of Stelari.
Paradise or Chomoi is a fine pebble beach like most beaches in this remote area. There are high cliffs on the back that separate it from the inland and give a sense of isolation and grandeur.
The largest beach in the area, yet another paradise with pebbles and a little sand.
During the night the sand is illuminated only by starlight and slightly by the distant lights of Paleokastritsa.
The stars gave its Italian name, Stelari from the word Stela which means Star in Italian.
It has all the features of previous beaches and more, it is idyllic, beautiful, and moreover gives a sense of grandeur due to the background scenery with the towering cliffs.
Unfortunately, it is accessible only from the sea.
Above, there is a Picture of Stelari at night from the camera of artist-photographer Basilis Metallinos.
7. Giali beach
Another secluded, idyllic beach near Ermones and the village of Giannades, is accessible only by sea.
