Paleokastritsa is a horseshoe shaped bay on the north west coast of Corfu
. It’s the main beach of Paleokastritsa
village and is around 25km or 40 minutes drive from the capital Kerkyra
. Paleokastritsa beach is also sometimes known as Agios Spiridon beach.
As Paleokastritsa is a popular resort the beach gets packed in the summer months, this makes the beach crowded and noisy but it also means it has everything you could ask for including sunbeds to hire, a number of tavernas to keep you fed and watered throughout the day, there’s water sports available to keep you entertained as well as pedalos and boats to hire so you can explore the surrounding area where there are lots of other beaches.
The beach itself is sand and shingle with a road running behind and a jetty at the western end where there are a lot of boats coming and going throughout the day. The water is shallow and a beautiful turquoise colour.
Most people that come to Paleokastritsa beach will be staying in the village but if you plan to travel here then there is ample parking around the area of the beach with a large car park close to the jetty end and further car parks close to the tavernas in the middle and the eastern end of the beach.
