Where is Rovinia Beach?

Rovinia beach is located in the area of Liapades in western Corfu just south of the rocky shores of Paleokastritsa.

Small, remote, beautiful, and unspoiled.

It is perhaps the most beautiful of the hidden beaches in western Corfu, considered by many tourists as the top beach in Corfu.

Corfu’s western coastal mountain range literally collapses steeply into the sea creating a natural dam of the coast from the interior of the island.

Rovinia, therefore, is accessible from the sea as well as from the land through a small path with steps, about 600 meters long, unlike the other isolated beaches of the area which are accessible only by the sea.

It is deserted, therefore not very crowded, with fine pebbles, little sand, and a turquoise crystal clear sea in a landscape of exceptional natural beauty, it could be a nudist beach.

It is a small petal-shaped beach, almost surrounded by tall rocks on both sides, these rocks at its southern end creating a small but spectacular cave.

Waters in Rovinia are crystal clear, fairly cold, almost frozen, as well as in the whole area of Paleokastritsa, due to the cold streams from the Adriatic that end up on these coasts.

They deepen abruptly so the beach is also suitable for those who want to use the surrounding rocks for diving. Therefore someone has to be careful with children.

There is a canteen boat close to the cave, in the shadow, that comes every day and offers ice cream and refreshments at cheap prices.

How to Visit Rovinia beach

We said already that the beach is easily accessible by the sea by getting a sea taxi from Gefyra beach in Paleokastritsa.

But if you decidе tо go there from the land using your car and foot, you need a small guide as it can be a little complicated.

First, it’s important on your way to Liapаdes Beaсh, to find a supermаrkеt called Athena.

There is a small road on its left sidе which you must follow.

If after 40 yards yоu arrive at a small сrοssroаd – then you are in the right path.

There you must turn to the right, just after the turn you must see a sign pointing to Rovinia. You can take this road in your car with extra care as it is small and with many slops.

After about 300 metеrs there is a small pаrking area where уоu must leаve yοur vehicle and follow the steps down to the beach. Here we are, in Rovinia beach!

A beach worth to visit

We have not visited it yet, but seeing it from the pictures we have the impression that we have been there already, or to be more precise we have found ourselves on a very similar beach many years ago, but we certainly do not remember where.

It is the famous Deja vu, this beach looks amazingly the same in all with a beach we been and exists either in Lesvos or Lemnos islands in the Aegean sea, but we certainly do not remember the place or the name …

In fact, Greece has so many beautiful places that resemble each other.

We hope to be able to visit Rovinia in the near future, in the meantime we try to convince you to visit it, it is worth the effort as those who were been there say, as well as the very positive comments by foreign tourists.

Here are some pictures from Rovinia
