The Ionian Version of the Caribbean
With exotic colorings – bright white sand and rocks contrasting with the clear turquoise water – reminiscent of a seaside paradise in Thailand or the Caribbean, Rovinia beach is unsurprisingly considered to be one of Corfu’s most stunning places to swim at.
Reachable by car (400m away from the picturesque and traditional Liapades village) but more often visited by boat from Paleokastritsa, the beach has no umbrellas or sun loungers to please those craving a more ‘organized’ experience, yet is still wildly popular due to its mesmerizing natural allure.
During high season (mid July to end August) it can get very busy, as boats drop off groups of tourists several times a day. At the very end of the beach, on the left, there is a rocky cove and a cave where – if no one has beaten you to it – you can relax in the shade when the heat gets too intense. There is also a caique-canteen selling refreshments on this end of the beach.
