Find your perfect spot among these beautiful beaches in Corfu


When in Corfu, you have to try the beaches. We can suggest many that are within easy reach and others, that are a bit of a day trip experience. All beaches in Corfu are beautiful - some are sandy, some are pebbly, in some you will jump off the rocks into the sea. We can also help with a boat rental - highly recommended for another perspective on the island’s coast.

Kanoni & Bataria Beach

Kanoni and Bataria are two beaches located in Kassiopi, surrounded by smooth rocks ideal for jumping into the deep blue waters. You can reach Kanoni from the adjacent Bataria cove. Both places are well worth a visit.

Syki Bay

This small pebbly bay is one of Corfu’s hidden gems close to The Merchant’s House. It is very secluded and just off the main road. Its natural shade and crystal clear waters make it ideal for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.

Agios Spyridon

The closest to our guesthouse, this beautiful sandy beach has it all – shallow waters, sunbeds, parasols, tavernas and beach bars. If the crowds are not your thing, a 5-min walk over the bridge will take you to the more secluded Gialiskari beach for a much more peaceful rest and swim.

Agios Stefanos

With 2 km of golden sand and calm emerald waters, this blue flag beach in the North East is next to a fishing village and a popular resort so plenty of activities for young and old.


Hire a Boat

When in Corfu you can’t miss the opportunity to be the skipper of your own boat for the day. It’s the perfect way to spend a sunny day on the crystal blue waters and discover all the hidden bays and coves on the East coast of the island. Stop off for lunch at the posh Agni Bay or just lower the anchor and jump off the boat in any of the many coastal lagoons. We will be happy to recommend a boat hire for you.
