Paleokastritsa is one of the most popular beach resorts on Corfu and is known for its particularly beautiful coastal scenery which winds around a series of small bays.
As a resort it’s long and spindly, clinging to the main road which terminates at Paleokastritsa Monastery.
One of the island’s main honeypots, it attracts many day-trippers (including those from the cruise ships as well as) as well as those staying there.
The scenery here is incredibly beautiful – and incredibly hilly. Unless you’re staying in one of the few beachfront hotels then steps and hills are likely to be involved. It takes 30 minutes to walk from one end to another.
Restaurants and amenities are spread out along the road. So you unlikely to be far from a bus stop, a taverna, or a shop. But if you have a particular beach or restaurant in mind it may be a reasonable trek.
