Paleokastritsa ~ Corfu Island

Paleokastritsa ~ Corfu Island

Paleokastritsa enjoys a spectacular setting on six (6) small-enclosed bays with crystal turquoise water. At the northern most promontory (Agios Spyridon) lies the 12th century monastery of Theotokos. The Monastery stands on a sheer hillside full of wild trees and olive trees facing the deep blue sea.


  In one of the cells in the monastery, a museum has been founded where holy and precious relics of the monastery are housed. Magnificent views are obtained from both the monastery and the hills above, particularly from the village of Lakones.


Paleokastritsa is chiefly memorable for the exceptional scenery along with the superb beaches. The cool crystal waters are ideal for swimming and water sports. On most of the beaches there are taxi boats, sun beds, umbrellas, motor boats, and canoes for rent.
