Issos is a huge sandy beach surrounded by Chalikounas at the north, the beach of Saint George at the south, and Korission lake at the east.

It is one of the best Corfiot beaches, belongs to the village of Chlomos, about 20 km from Corfu town on the west side of the island.

Ιn terms of tourist exploitation it remains virgin because it belongs, along with neighboring Halikounas, to the protected “natura” area of Korission lagoon.

So there you will not find hotels or numerous bars and shops, but only a large natural open area used as parking, and endless sand with dunes and crystal clear waters.

Between Issos and Chalikounas there is a small cedar forest next to Korission lake, on a narrow strip of land joining the two beaches, see more here

On Issos beach there are umbrellas and sunbeds and because of the open sea, there are permanent waves making it ideal for surfing and sailing.

There is no vacation in Corfu island without a visit to Issos beach.
