The Gardiki fort
Surprisingly tucked away near the edge of the road, you come across the fort without much warning. Gardiki fort is a lovely old Byzantine ruin that is open to explore.

Children up to teenagers will be happy scrambling about. Not a lot of interest, however,
if you do not like history or old ruins.

Costs

Facilities
None. This is just a ruin with no guides, guide books, toilets or other such things.

Back to Top of Page The beach


The beach, Gardiki and Lake Korisia, Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide
This nice soft sandy beach is very long, running the length of the lake, separated
from it by an unmade road and a narrow strip of sand dunes. There are no traditional resort facilities as this area is quiet, natural and unspoilt. On very windy days the dry sand is liable to be blown all over you, which can be quite painful in strong winds (and there is no shelter). Rocks at the far end are particularly slippery. The beach is popular with locals at the weekend, especially Sunday lunchtime.

Back to Top of Page Bathing

No particular hazards but normal care should be taken as with all west coast beaches due to the possibility of strong currents.

Back to Top of Page Bathing (lake)

Not recommended.

Back to Top of Page Child Suitability

Close supervision is required for small children as there are no facilities such as lifeguards or warning flags. Care should be taken with children playing in the dunes, especially when digging as this sand will easily collapse and there are many plants with very sharp spines.

Back to Top of Page Sunbeds


Sunbeds, Gardiki and Lake Korisia, Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide
None, or take your own.
Refreshments
There is a semi-permanent van serving drinks and snacks at the end nearest Gardiki, otherwise take your own. There are a few places to eat on the road from Gardiki to Korisia, but these may only be fully open from June to September.
Cleanliness
The beach and the dunes are normally clean
Hotels
There are no hotels at Korisia.
Parking
On the unmade road.

Accessibility: Really only by car or motorbike although you can walk from Ag.Geogios. Take road either from Ag. Mattheos or Messonghi and follow signs.

Maltas Beach is 40 minutes walk from Perivoli (Korission region). On the road map, Marathias and Santa Barbara are marked. It's all the same beach.
There are five tavernas on the beach itself and a few more back up the roads to Marathias and Maltas. Marathias is a real village. Maltas is essentially the resort - ie a few apartments and a few tavernas. The place is very quiet. Virtually no English, some Germans, Dutch, Czechs, a few Italians, and in the day especially lots of Greeks. Ideal for families and people who are happy with just a beach and nothing else.

Its beach as far as you can see in either direction. North you go to the dunes around Lake Korission and if you cross the bridge and keep going you'll come to Alonaki Bay; beach isn't great but the taverna is excellent...you can get to by road but beware as the coastal road is not passable as most went into the sea winter 2009/10. South you can walk along the beach for miles around a few rocks and along to Santa Barbara (sand now more red than yellow) where again there are nice tavernas. You shouldn't need a scooter or car to enjoy a different beach most days.

Hi, does anyone know of any operators who hire out motor boats in the south west of Corfu, in particular near Lake Korission?
Thanks
Billy
