(sometimes spelled Halikounas), located on the south western coast of Corfu, is
one of the most impressive beaches in the whole island. The wide sandy beach
stretches along Lake Korission dividing the lake and the open sea.
Unlike most tourist beaches, Chalikounas Beach
still retains it natural beauty and it rarely crowded, making it ideal for a
quiet beach holiday. You can find a
couple of snack bars and a tavern on the beach, but no umbrellas or sun beds.
Due to the windy west coast of Corfu,
Chalikounas Beach is a surfer's paradise. Whether you are looking for wind
surfing or kite surfing, Chalikounas Beach is the place to be.
Unfortunately, Chalikounas beach is only accessible by car. Interestingly, there
are various access points for wheelchairs in strategic points of the beach.
