Arillas Beach

Scenic walks, safe swimming, spectacular sunsets and legends of Greek mythology lure visitors to this beach on Corfu’s northwest coast.

Combine relaxation and entertainment with nature and local history at Arillas Beach. It’s a beach popular with both families and couples. Enjoy relaxed walks on the 1.2-mile-long (2-kilometer) stretch of golden sand and swim in the warm, shallow water. Check out islets noted in Greek mythology and dine on traditional Corfiot cuisine at waterfront taverns. 

Arillas Beach’s popularity owes much to its opportunities for safe swimming. The shallow, blue-green water and flat sea bottom make it an ideal place for children. Peninsulas at either end of the beach also create a natural protection from strong winds. Rent sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach to help protect you from the sun. 

Stand at the water’s edge and look out to the three small islets, Kravia, Gineka and Sikia. Greek mythology states that the islets are the remains of Ulysses’ ship. At sunset the islets present excellent photography opportunities.

Stroll along the beachfront road to find a handful of restaurants and taverns. Most are run by local families and serve delicious plates of seafood and local cuisine such as baked feta cheese. You can also buy fresh fruit from the hawkers that walk up and down the beach. 

Walk around the northern peninsula to Agios Stefanos beach and great views of Diaplo Island. Across the southern peninsula is Agios Georgios, a great beach for watersports such as windsurfing and waterskiing. Follow the Arillas Trail, a 5-mile (8-kilometer) walk that passes through green fields and olive groves. Look for the nets used to catch olives and try to spot a traditional olive press. The trail finishes at a microbrewery, where you can learn about beer-making and sample craft beers. 

Located on the northwest coast of Corfu, Arillas Beach is easily accessible from all areas of the island. It’s about a 1-hour drive from Corfu Town and public buses run frequently between the two destinations. Rent a car and visit some of the nearby villages and beaches, including Sidari and Canal d’Amour.
