The beautiful large sandy beach of Gardenos at Vitalades.
Gardenos beach is situated in the southwest end part of Corfu and is the beachside of the traditional village of Vitalades.
Distance from the town of Corfu is quite large, about 30 km from the airport but it is worth the drive. The region took its name after the small river which flows into the sea and separates Gardenos into two regions.
It is exclusively covered by sand which looks more white than the sand on neighboring beaches, usually, waters are calm and shallow, so it is safe for families with children.
In Gardenos beach there are parasols and sunbeds which are rendered for an amount of about 5 euros per day, there are showers and a variety of restaurants and taverns on the shore.
Walking on the shore towards the south, the equally beautiful beach Megali Lakka (Kanoula beach another name) can be reached.
In the region, there are a few rooms to let, mini markets and a quite spacious parking lot just next to the beach.
In order to get to Gardenos beach, you must drive through the lovely traditional village of Vitalades.
