Glyfada Corfu: One of the most popular beaches of the island, Glyfada is located 16 km west of Corfu Town. It is awarded with the Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters while the large surface of soft sand is surrounded by trees-covered cliffs and imposing rocky formations.
The beach offers a wide variety of beach facilities like sunbeds and umbrellas, water sports facilities, shops and taverns. Glyfada attracts mostly young crowds and it is usually noisy. Glyfada is one of the best examples of the island’s sandy beaches.
Is one of Corfu’s most beautiful beaches a long sandy stretch at the bottom of a olive and cypress covered hill- looking out across the sea to Italy.
There is one large hotel on the beach, and many villas and apartments on the slopes of the hill. It is definitely a place for beach lovers, as there is no village as such, although you can walk to Pelekas and Vatos.
During the day families throng here, enjoying sand, sun, and lunch in one of the tavernas, but as the sun sinks down the younger generation take over, filling the bars and preparing to party well into the night.
The next beach going north is one of Corfu’s prettiest, and smallest, Myrtiotissa, with a monastery on the hill above – strange then that this beach is the unofficial bnudist beach of the island!
