A boat trip to Corfu’s Paradise Beach

Not only does the sea at Paradise Beach glisten with impossible shades of blue, but reaching high above you as you sunbathe there is a near-vertical rockface that gives you a sense of total isolation from the rest of Corfu. The scene is completed by the cliffs around the bay gently sloping towards the sea, carrying a carpet of Mediterranean greenery with them. 

And best of all, Paradise Beach (or Chomi as it’s known to the locals) is accessible only by sea. So, despite its rising popularity, you have the feeling of unearthing a treasure as you approach it. 

Boats make the short journey from Paleokastritsa, and other nearby spots in northeastern Corfu, throughout the day, driving you right onto a beach of fine white pebbles. From then on, all you have to do is swim and gaze into unbroken views of the Ionian Sea. 

The coastline near here is full of enchanting bays, sea caves and other beaches to explore. So you can also hire your own boat and skipper and tailor your journey. Just don’t forget the reason you came and give yourself plenty of time in paradise.

Highlights of a boat trip to Corfu’s Paradise Beach 

The coastline

Paradise Beach is the star of this show, but the blues and greens of the sea and dramatic cliffs of Corfu’s northwest coastline will delight you, even if only for the very short trip from Paleokastritsa. 

Sea caves

There’s the added bonus of pulling in to a couple of sea caves along the way. Nafsika Cave was mentioned by Homer as where the daughter of the mythical king of the Phaeacians, Nafsika, sheltered Odysseys during his travels. Other caves stand out for their impressive shades of blue. There’s also a sea cave at the northern end of Paradise Beach that you can swim into. 

Other beaches

If you hire a boat and explore the coastline, you’ll find numerous beautiful beaches. Rovinia is 600m of fine pebbles and sand, surrounded by exceptional natural beauty, while Iliodoros (or Liniodoros) is a gorgeous, pebbled enclave southwest of the village of Liapades that is completely locked in by the sea and a thick forest. And Limni, 2km from the village of Liapades, is a smooth-pebbled strip of land between two rocks, giving views of the sea in front of and behind you.
