Paleokastritsa Tours

OVERVIEW

The picturesque village of Paleokastritsa, located on the north-west coast of Corfu, around 25 km from Corfu Town, has long been considered one of the most beautiful spots, not just of Corfu, but also of Greece as a whole. Surrounded by hills covered in cypresses, olive and citrus trees, Paleokastritsa is renowned for its unique natural beauty and often called ''The Jewel of the Ionian Sea'' or the ''Capri of Greece''.


The coastline of Paleokastritsa is particularly varied and dramatic and consists of over 15 bays many of which are accessible only by boat. Legend has it that it is on one of these bays that the shipwrecked Odysseus (the fascinating hero of Homer’s Odyssey) was washed ashore and met Nausicaa for the first time. Another highlight of the area is the many beautiful caves dotted along the coastline which can be explored by small boats.


Perched on a hill above Paleokastritsa beach lies the 13th-century monastery of the Virgin Mary, one of the island's most beautiful monasteries. This small working monastery has a beautiful chapel and gardens, as well as an unparalleled view out to sea. Nearby villages include the unspoilt Lakones, which is full of traditional houses and also offers wonderful views out to the sea, which is believed to be amongst the best in Corfu.


Visitors to Paleokastritsa can swim in the crystal clear waters, take a boat trip to explore the little caves of the area, visit the hilltop monastery or simply sit down, relax and enjoy a delicious meal in one of the seaside tavernas. Paleokastritsa is one of Corfu's most popular attractions and is included as a stop in many of our Corfu Private Tours and Corfu Shore Excursions such as our Private Tour to Paleokastritsa & Corfu Town, our Private Tour: Panoramic Corfu or our Best of Corfu Full Day Private Island Tour.
