Myrtiotissa beach is famous thanks to the description in Lawrence Durrell’s ‘Prospero’s Cell’ who called it ‘perhaps the loveliest beach in the world.’ The beach has retained its original charm which is helped by only being accessible by footpath or boat. Myrtiotissa is just less than 15 minutes’ drive away.
Paleokastritsa (25 minutes’ drive) is home to two sandy beaches separated by headland of rock. With lots of cafes and tavernas, it is perfect for a family day trip. It is also known for being Corfu’s favourite beauty spot. Look out for the luxury yachts that sail past the bay.
