About Benitses

Benitses is a small village on the east coast of Corfu roughly 9 kilometres south of the airport making it a short 20 minute drive or taxi ride. Benitses is also often referred to as Mpenitses.

Back in the 80s, Benitses was the go-to resort for the 18-30 crowd. That is definitely not the case any more and some say Benitses still looks like somewhere past it’s prime but others think it’s beautiful again and back to it’s traditional fishing village roots.

There is a pebble and shingle beach with a marina at the northern end that is home to close to 200 boats and yachts. The beach backs onto the road where you’ll find parking and a number of shops and tavernas. To read more about the beach go to our Benitses Beach page.

Benitses has all the usual tourist facilities like supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The night life can be a bit quiet for some peoples tastes but that’s perfect for others. There’s a good selection of restaurants including fish, traditional Greek and Chinese, many of which are based around the sea front so you get to take in the views whilst enjoying your drinks or meal.

Benitses is probably best suited to couples looking for a relaxing break rather than young adults looking to party and with the beach being pebble and shingle it’s not ideal for kids either.
