FACILITIES NEAR SINARADES
-Agios Gordis:It is the modern and tourist part of Sinarades (2.5 km away). You can have a walk , mostly going down, following the road. If you are adventurous in the last part you will find two paths to the “wild” part of the beach.
If you are coming by car, depending on the time and the month, you have the choice to park just outsides Agios Gordis next to the first shop or to park near the beach (you will have to pay), where there are 2 parkings: one on the right and the other on the left.
In front of the bus stop you will find the rent-byke-shop, one of the few newsdealer, the travel agency.
If you keep on walking towards the sea you will see on the right side a big superette (same owner as the one in Sinarades but with more products) and on the left side 2 bars with PC and WIFI free for customers At the end on the left there is a cafè for sandwiches and ghyros and on the right the second newsagent, Where the road finish there is the beach with umbrellas and bars.The beach is 3 kms long, sandy with rocks.
If you want a beach nearly only for you, turn right and walk 500 meters as far as a small promontory. The “wild” beach starts here. Bring food, drinks and beach-umbrella with you.
-Kontogialis known as Pelekas beach:It is a beautiful medium size beach.
-Jaliscary beach: Very small, but nice
-Mirtiotissa beach: It is a nudist beach. Very small but very beautiful. On the beach you ll' find a small bar which can provide sun beds, beach umbrella, drinks and sandwiches.
-Glyfada beach:It is a modern standard beach with easy parking. The beach is sandy and convenient but without charme. Don't go there on Sunday. It is one of the beaches that locals like most.
-Ermones beach: Some like the place some not. It is surrounded by elegant houses and a huge 4 stars hotel.
- Paleokastritsa: Remember that it is a very touristic place.You can visit the monastery parking down(high season) or up on the top(low season). Go by boat to the different beaches or walk along the road and descend to the harbour or to the different bays/beaches that you can not see from the road .
-Halikounas beach and Korissia lagoon: It is the best place to go on Sunday because the beach is huge. The lagoon is interesting in the right season for birdwatching. It is a huge and flat sand beach with a few small bars. It is a different Corfu. Better to bring food, drinks, sunbeds and beach-umbrella; facilities are very small. You find a lot of restaurants in the last Kms. They have in general a good reputation.
The area is central for walking in the nature and in small villages. For people that like hiking, beautiful pathways offer unique experiences with astonishing panoramic views. We have also a guide-book for walks in central Corfu (Sinarades area) easy to medium walks.
