About Pelekas Beach
Kontogialos beach, more often known as Pelekas beach due to it’s location on the edge of the village of Pelekas is found on the centre of the west coast. It’s a short 30 minute drive from the capital Kerkyra.
Pelekas beach is linked to the village of Pelekas by a steep and tricky winding road, you can walk it in about 20 minutes but in the Greek sun that might be a bit much for some people, alternatively you can drive but take care as there are a lot of hairpin turns. A taxi is probably easiest. Another options is to book yourself into one of the hotels or apartments that are right on the beach. If you are arriving by car then there’s a couple of spots to park just behind the beach.
Once on Pelekas beach you’ll find plenty of sun beds and umbrellas to hire, these are located around the tavernas in the centre of the beach and a huge selection in front of the large hotel complex at the southern end of the beach. Pelekas also has water sports, pedalo hire and a number of tavernas for food and drink as well as a beach volleyball net and showers.
Pelekas never feels over crowded due to how large it is and the sand and calm waters stay shallow a fair way out making it great for kids as they can safely build sandcastles, dig a hole in the sand or play in the shallow waters without fear of it suddenly dropping off.
