Your guide to Benitses holidays
On a Benitses holiday you can take in the beautiful scenery of the Greek island, as well as the pristine East coast that overlooks the Ionian Sea. Not only can you soak up the ever-present sunshine, but you can also soak in the history that the region holds, including the Roman villa and baths at Benitses’ centre.
Pride of the village, Benitses is home to a recently built harbour that offers boat trips to nearby Corfu town and the beaches of Messonghi and Morratika. Another way to reach Corfu Town is by bus. With its bustling streets, Venetian architecture and brilliant shops, you can mix sightseeing and shopping.
If you hire a car, you have lots of choice, with plenty of sights to see up the coast, like Mount Pantokrator where views look out to Albania and Achillion Palace, which is now a museum. Elsewhere ‘Mouse Island’ or Pontikonisi sits in the scenic bay of Kanoni and is home to the Byzantine church of Pantokrator.
A beach holiday in Benitses is made for whole family with a variety of water sports, such as water skiing, paragliding and pedaloes, as well as lots of jetties and platforms built for swimmers. All you need is a parasol and towel to help you relax and soak up the Corfiot sun.
You’re spoilt for choice with beaches in Benitses, from pebble, shingle and sandy shores that slope rapidly into refreshing, clear water. The main beach has an EU Blue Flag award for its cleanliness, meaning the sea’s purity is ideal for swimming and other water activities.
Because of Benitses’ central location on Corfu, you have easy access to all the best beaches, like Perama. Surrounded by olive groves and home to several picturesque pebble waterfronts, Perama is the seaport of Gastouri and is situated between Corfu Town and Benitses.
