The verdant, rocky hills that frame the beaches, with their crystal clear, amazingly blue waters, captivate the visitor. It owes its name to the neighbouring Byzantine castle of Angelokastro, located on its northern side. Approximately twenty minutes from the city of Corfu (25 km), Paleokastritsa is situated on the northwest coast of the island. It consists of two green peninsulas with various beautiful beaches and bays dotted all around them. Around Paleokastritsa, especially to the south, there are many beaches of unique beauty, the majority of which are either difficult to access or very isolated. Many are only accessible from the sea. These hidden beaches generally are comprised of small pebbles and a little sand but have the amazingly turquoise, crystal-clear water in common. They normally have no tourist development so are totally unspoilt. This adds to their exotic beauty. Renting a boat is recommended as there are numerous caves to explore along this part of the coast. The sea at Paleokastritsa, and on the west coast of Corfu, is typically cold. There is also a scuba diving centre and the area is suitable for snorkeling too. • DOUKADES The traditional, historic settlement with its majestic beauty. Villages of great interest are hidden above the cosmopolitan resort of Paleokastritsa. These villages have been described as a “traditional settlement”, as they have a similar background. One of the most picturesque and beautiful villages of them all is Doukades. Villages of great interest are hidden above the cosmopolitan resort of Paleokastritsa.

Hiking enthusiasts can enjoy the route along a cobbled path through the forest, which leads to the church of Agios Symeon, at an altitude of 350 meters. From this point you can see all the coves of Paleokastritsa! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1241954
