A beautiful stretch of golden sand that combines peaceful moments with basic tourist facilities.
Relaxing moments under the sun
Almyros is at a 5-min distance from our holiday villas in Corfu, at the far end of the popular tourist resort of Acharavi village. It is actually one of the longest beaches in Corfu Island as it stretches for 7 kilometers and it is the natural extension of Acharavi beach. This means that you can actually walk all the way from Acharavi to Almyros beach and enjoy the diversity of beach life.
Although it is so close to a developed tourist destination, this beach maintains, by contrast, a low profile and offers moments of blissful tranquility without lacking basic tourist services, such as sunbeds and umbrellas. Its golden sand and its calm and shallow waters are the perfect environment for families with small children that guaranty carefree swimming and fun on the beach. Moreover, close to the beach there are a few taverns where you can enjoy a cool beer or sample seafood delicacies and other local specialties.
If you feel like returning back to a more bustling setting, you may opt to drive a couple of minutes to Acharavi village, where shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, bank and medical services cater for every need. Apart from the main road, there are several narrow streets that lead to the beach, where you can have a nice meal or drink a cup of coffee on one of the seaside restaurants or cafés to the sound of waves.
A couple of kilometres further down Acharavi you find Roda village, another popular tourist resort. Since it’s the same sandy beach that continues further on, instead of driving there, you may choose to walk or ride your bike on a small seaside path and enjoy the view of the bay.
