CORFU - South part

Corfu is huge. I have tips only for South Corfu. Corfu city is really picturesque and it reminds me of Italian cities a lot.

Where to stay: I stayed with relatives therefore I cannot suggest any hotel. Use tripadvisor instead... :-)

Where to eat: 75 Skalopatia restaurant at Messoggi close to Moraitika (incredible view and very friendly environment), at Spurou Karidi Restaurant at Boukari (mostly for fish), and at Doukades village for Goat spaggeti.

Where to swim: At Chalikouna beach, at Issos beach, Megali Lakka from Kritika village you follow the label (huge and not crowded at all beach, I strongly recommend, difficult road to reach)

Where to drink:   Go to Corfu city where you will find plenty of bars. Avoid Kavos. 


Paros is an island with a lot of choices. It has some picturesque villages and a lot of nice beaches. Lefkes village is very picturesque and with nice small sweet and coffee shops. Antiparos is very small and with only one village which is really busy in the afternoon. Antiparos has a big cave that is worth visiting as well.
Where to stay: We stayed at Mike's Rooms outside Paroikia. They were decent. Not expensive and very clean. At Roccos' Studios at Antiparos we found a value for money redecorated small studios very close to the main road of Antiparos where all the restaurants and shops are.

Where to eat: At Laris restaurant at Agia Eirini beach (Palm beach), at Lolantonis tavern at Lolalontis beach and at Ag. Georgios at Antiparos Captain Pipinos Restaurant. At Antiparos you may also eat at Argo (to the way to the camping) and Peramataki taverna before Soros beach.

Where to swim: Agia Eirini (Palm beach) to the way to Pounta, Parasporos beach (always with waves), Kaminakia next to Marcello, Piso Aliki beach, and after Soros beach at Antiparos any of the small private beaches you chose. The southest beach Panagia Faneromeni is really one of the best beaches of Antiparos. If you have a 4X4 car you may try Monastiria beach otherwise, the north beach at the camping of Antiparos as well as Panayia beach are also very nice.
