Boat Trip Paleokastritsa

When you are on holiday on Corfu, you want to see things of the island. Let's face it, Corfu is such a special part of Greece, so it is a waste if you only will stay in the neighbourhood of your apartment or holiday villa, no matter how comfortable en nice it is. So most of the visitors of Corfu rent a car or a scooter and off you go. Of course will come up first the well known attractions of Corfu: Achilleion, Corfu Town, Mon Repos, Kaisers Throne and so on. Do that, they are all worth the effort of a visit.
If you are a bit more adventurous than most people, then you must do a boat trip along the West coast of Corfu!

Discovering Corfu West coast

This side of the island differs from the North and East coast of Corfu, that means, it is much rougher and rockie. OK, you will find large and popular beaches like Arillas, Agios Georgious, Glyffada, Agios Gordios and Xalikounas, to name a few. The West coast is more rocky though and so less cultivated. So you will see an abundant green cover, alternated with beatiful massive rocks and many tiny Bounty Beaches. In Paleokastritsa you are in the middle of it! With the port of Paleo as a start you can make a beautiful trip along the roughest coast of Corfu. Beside that you can watch the famous Theotokis Monastery and Angelokastro from a different point of view.

Silent Corfu Beaches

A question we hear many times is: Where can I find the silent beaches of Corfu? A simple question answered simply, is: at the 200 kilometer coastline of Corfu. But that's a but silly, no? The problem with silent beaches is that they are hard to reach by land. That's why they are so quiet, you see? So with a boat you have a big advantage! Imagine, following the coastline you see one of those lovely tiny secluded beaches. Since you have this boat you sail to that beach and the very next moment you feel the warm white sand between your tows. OK, you might not be the only one, so don't throw away all of your clothes. You are not the only smart ass, you see. There are other people that rent a boat during their holiday on Corfu. But it's definitely not Ipsos- or Dassia Beach, with all respect.
