With more than 130 miles (209 kilometers) of Ionian coastline, Corfu island has more beautiful beaches than any 2-week traveler can ever hope to explore. But, before you settle for any old stretch of sand, read our picks for the best beaches in Corfu.
 
Issos
This dune-lined stretch of golden sand is situated in Agios Geórgios on the southwest edge of the Korission Lagoon and famously featured in the 1981 James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only. Lifeguards watch over the shallow waters, which draw in swimmers and water sports enthusiasts, while the golden sands are a magnet for sunbathers.
 
Paleokastritsa
Located about 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Corfu Town, Paleokastritsa is home to a series of six beaches set around a bay, some of which can only be accessed by boat. A common thread between them all is their crystal-clear waters, which makes them ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. Boat trips carry beachgoers out to sea caves here.
 
Porto Timoni
Set near the village of Afionas, this double beach straddles either side of a narrow strip of land and is not only one of the most picturesque in Corfu but also in Greece as a whole. Its difficult-to-access location keeps crowds at bay: You can get here either by taking a boat or by hiking down a rocky, hillside path. The walk from Afionas should take about 30 minutes.
 
Ágios Geórgios Págon
Curving along the northwest coast of the island, this U-shaped sandy beach is bordered by cliffs that rise from the water. Try windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, or just floating in the tie-dye blue waters. This stretch usually remains uncrowded, even in the height of the season.
 
Glyfada
One of the closest beaches to Corfu Town, Glyfada is known for its soft golden sand and the tree-covered cliffs that surround the beach. Most popular with younger crowds, the beach has all the basic amenities, as well as water sports facilities, shops, and beach bars.
 
Canal d’Amour
Located near the resort town of Sidari on the north coast, the Canal d’Amour (Channel of Love) is one of Corfu’s most famous beaches. It’s small, but perfectly formed, with striking rock formations creating a network of coves and canals. Tradition dictates that if a couple swim through the narrow canal, they will soon be wed.
