Moraitika is on the east coast of Corfu
, roughly 20km south of Corfu town
which would take about half an hour by car. The airport is slightly closer but transfers would probably take from 30 to 45 minutes.
The bulk of the village is based around the main road that cuts through the middle with the rest down by the large beach. It's a very popular resort for families and young couples, probably because of the beach that kids love.
There's a good selection of hotels, with beach front options and more in the village centre too.
You’ll also have access to the usual tourist amenities like travel agencies to book your boat trips, vehicle hire shops, supermarkets, cash machines and gift shops too.
Another good thing with Moraitika is that it’s a kind of a 2 for 1 deal as it merges into Messonghi
in the south which means you can easily walk back and forth between the 2 villages and enjoy what both have to offer.
Moraitika offers a wealth of tavernas, pubs and bars to keep you entertained day and night. There's bars with Karaoke, live music and Greek nights with dancing that are a lot of fun for all the family. There's no nightclubs so young adults might get bored but there are cocktail bars and plenty of places that stay open late.
If you’re looking for a lively but not crazy holiday then this is a good choice of resort, particularly as you have the option of the other bars in Messonghi too.
If you want to get out and see some of the sites from around Corfu island then it’s useful to know that Moraitika is not far from Gardiki Castle
or Lake Korission
as well as Halikounas beach
Getting to the north of the island will take a bit longer, so keep that in mind if you want to visit somewhere in the far north like Cape Drastis
then the journey time in a car or taxi will be close to 90 minutes.
