Messonghi is a small peaceful resort situated about 1Km. south of the resort of Moraitika. It is quiet and peaceful with the majority of facilities all within 100mtrs. of the beach. The terrain is relatively flat with no steep hills to climb on those hot summer days. Olive groves populate almost every scrap of unused land. The roads in and around the village are not major through roads and therefore traffic is relatively infrequent.

Just back from Messonghi yesterday, originally booked for June but had to cancel unfortunately, but managed to grab a week. One of the lovely things about Messonghi is that nothing ever changes too much. Same lovely people with a few new additions. Amazingly, after 6 years they all remembered me. In fact, I was well and truly told off by Victor's daughter Angela, demanding to know where I had been all this time! They have made a good job of the new Barino Bar, was pleasantly surprised. George looks well, and I do like the new look Timeout. Seaside Bar still popular, new faces running it for me but still so friendly, and I never get tired of that view! Stayed at the Aquarius which has a lovely pool area, so handy for everything and the staff are lovely. They seem to have sorted out the sunbed issues on the beach, and there were plenty available down by Seaside and To Meraki without feeling too overcrowded. The only thing about the beach though is the very poor state of the boardwalk after Seaside up to Christina, it was a bit hazardous in places and would be better taken away altogether rather than left as it is. I have read a lot about the rubbish issues on Corfu lately, was pleasantly surprised to find the village itself was spotless. Weather was very " hit & miss ", but mostly good. Clouds and cooler in the morning, but that gave me the chance to have a few pleasant walks without the heat of the afternoon, perfect!
All in all, a nice relaxing week and so glad I went.

Hiya ,
Just preparing for my visit to Messonghi next week and have noticed that a 50 euro note which I had leftover from last August is an older style one. Does anyone know please if these are still acceptable and if not would I be able to change it in a bank over there? Thanks,

Hi Sue I only reserved a seat out 2A left side and not one back just priority boarding. I always try to get a left hand/side seat out as I know the flight path (nearly always) so I can look out the window and see Petriti (sometimes) but always Messonghi/Moraitika/Benitses going into the airport . On the way back any seat will do (sad)

Jackie, have you been to Petriti at all? If not and you want "laid back" Greek time then visit Petriti or come again when I'm in Petriti, I'll be in Messonghi a few times as I have many Greek friends there as well. Have a great time.

Well, we had a great time in Corfu in 2016, visiting for a few days in May, 3 weeks in August/September,
and a few days in October.
We stayed in Messonghi this year for 3 nights, and visited lots of areas in the South. It’s quite astonishing
how different the South of the island is to the North (at least to us). We enjoyed our stay in the South
(especially Lefkimmi), but we now know that the North is our home, so to speak.
Highlights this year were finally finding the waterfall near Nymfes and having a dip, my wife and 2 girls going
on a jet ski in Agios Stephanos, having a couple of lazy and long lunches at the fabulous Binilikia in Petalia with
good friends and a great host in Katerina, and my personal favourite, the Corfu beer festival.
So, we have already booked our flights for 2017, with a week in May, 2 weeks in July/August and 5 nights
in October (that one without the kids). Can’t wait to be back on the island, especially to see our friends
Claire and Andy who have now made the move out there and have a wonderful house, in a great location.
Here’s to 2017 being a really prosperous year for Corfu, it’s inhabitants and all who visit her.
Merry Christmas one and all

We are thinking of trying somewhere different in Corfu for 2017 for a family holiday. Looking for a resort with a nice sandy beach we usually go to Messonghi and love it but that is just the 2 of us and can cope with the beach there, it isn't very nice and just doesn't seem to be getting looked after anymore but ok for us but next year taking family and grandchild so want a nice beach.
Can anyone advise me on the resort we will be going 1st week September will it be busy quiet or just nice and looking for accommodation which is near to the beach and any with pools so we have best of both worlds.
We are going to Messonghi in June as I've said earlier love the place and the people are just so friendly it's like going to second home.
Looking forward to some information on St George South no matter how small anything that will help me choose well. Thank you.

Hi Shakespearstar, no not disappointed we loved Paxos and will return in a couple of years but I did think the people definitely were not as friendly as lots of other Greek islands I have visited. We stayed in Gaios and had a fantastic 10 days, we visited anti Paxos where we had a lovely lunch we also went by bus to Loggos and Lakka and had a lovely lunch we also went to Mogonissi twice had lovely lunches but the service or the friendliness was not what we have experienced in other Greek islands. We ate out for 10 nights in Gaios and to be honest I really missed fresh vegetables like we normally get in Corfu but it was chips 90% of the time a couple of nights we had rice with whatever we ordered.
Gaios itself was fantastic to wander round watch all the different yachts come in had some lovely shops and is a place we will visit again but food wise Messonghi in Corfu to name but one beats it hands down and I don't mean the all inclusive Messonghi Beach hotel I mean the little local tavernas in Messonghi village.
I think maybe Loggos and Lakka will be friendlier and offer a better service and food after reading other reviews online.

Hi Janpan
Yes she is very helpful. There is also Captain Homer tours who has an office round the corner from Messonghi Travel and others on the river so you will be spoilt for choice.
You can do a trip to Paxos but it is by ferry, you are picked up around 8am in Messonghi and took to the Ferry. Paxos is lovely we are staying there for 10 days this year really looking forward to it.
There is a night trip also to Corfu Town which is also very nice.
As I say you are spoilt for choice, let me know how you get on.

We are staying in Coyevinas, in the north of the island, in June but quite fancy a trip over to Sivoto, somewhere we haven't been in all the years we have been in Corfu! Does anyone know how we can find out the days and times of the trips from Messonghi as we would rather not turn up and find we are on the wrong day, or worst still, just missed the boat!? Thanks.

Last year the beach at Messonghi had over flowing bins and was not kept clean does anyone know if this will be the case this year?
I understand it is the responsibility of the persons who has sunbeds on the beach to keep there area clean well, that wasn't the case for the stretch from seaside bar to Christina's.
Plus all the boards on the beach were broken and very dangerous to walk along, also the boards along by Dionysos were broken. The changing room was all smashed up in May but was rectified when we went back towards the end of the season.
It is a great shame the beach is not kept nice when Messonghi is such a wonderful resort and attracts visitors back year after year, you would think some pride would be taken of the beach.

For me an evening sat outside the Fisherman's Haunt looking over to Messonghi, having something to eat and drink but I'm biased I think well there are sooooo many to choose from!

I've stayed at the Christina a number of times twice with my father (90) and the beds did not bother us! Look at the Rossis in Messonghi? In Messonghi there are a number of good apartments Memories, Seaside Snack bar (upstairs). As I said look at Trip Advisor.

I second everything Gerry said. There is another lovely place called Notos Beach further on from Petriti, the beach on the right has lovely gardens with hammocks spread around, a taverna and the sea is shallow and calm with canoes, body boards etc use for free. The kids would love it, you can get Christos boat there from the Messonghi river for a lovely boat trip day out that isnt too long.

Hi Gerry, sorry, yes I mean summer 2016.

I have looked online, Delphina Hotel looks lovely, but any booking sites all quote half board/AI and we only want room only or B&B

Messonghi Beach hotel is again half board AI - def not doing either - it also looks a bit big, and as we don't have children, it's probably more suited to families.

3 stars Hotel looks nice, but the reviews of the very nearby Golden Beach bar and music blaring until late concerns me

Christina Hotel, location wise looks ideal, but reviews say the beds are very uncomfortable (a lot of reviews saying this)

So any recommendations for a hotel very near the beach, not affected by late night bars, and that has comfortable beds would be great

Annie you said "this year"? do you mean 2016? Why don't you Google both Moraitika/Messonghi ? or even check Trip adviser! I could recommend hotels etc. in both but we do have favourites? Come back to me and I'll see what I can assist in.

Thanks very much Gerry, are there any hotels near the beach you recommend in Messonghi or Moraitika. Is the beach the same in both resorts, or is one sandier than the other?

Hi Annie. Moraitika is a good resort as it is on the "road side" for bars/tavernas and the beach is sandy and shallow. There are a number of good tavernas but we all have our favourites. Just over the river is Messonghi which is a little quieter but also very good for bars/tavernas! I've been going for over 25 years and never tire of it.

Hi. We are booked for our usual 3 week break in Acharavi

next August, but this year, we have decided to have a short break (3 nights, 4 days)

in Messonghi too. We have booked the Aquarius Apartments and have

never really explored the South of the Island. So my questions are:

1.       Which tavernas/bars are a must visit in Messonghi/the surrounding area?

2.       Which places/beaches are a must see whilst there?

We are a family of 4 with a 3 and 12 year old, and we will have a hire car so travelling

around the South of the Island is no problem.

All recommendations are much appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Jackie, most of the Greek Orthodox churches have Easter services. Moraitika is nice, up in the old village. They hold a service Easter Saturday evening, then people congregate outside the church.
Benitses is nice too. They have singing and fireworks.
If you are on the beach at midnight in Messonghi or Moraitika, you can see the fireworks in Corfu town.   Smile

Hi Olympus ,
Would you know if there are any Easter Services (Orthodox ) in Messonghi/Moraitika? Apart from the Catholic church on the main road, the only other one I have noticed is the little church on the way up to Hlomatiana village.
Thankyou,

Jackie

We got back on the 20th September and we have never known it so hot. I think the weather has changed this week though.
We had a couple of walks up to the Fishermans Haunt during the afternoon, it's lovely.
Had some lovely meals in Messonghi and it was nice to see Marilena's open because it hadn't opened when we were there in May.
We are back in June next year, can't wait.

Just love sitting on Messonghi beach looking over at Fishermans Haunt and along the coast line, cant wait for next year.

Yes I agree there are "two" parts of Messonghi, one by the river and one a bit further down by the cross roads and the supermarket. It has a more "quaint" feel to it not as "dare I say it" as tourist as Moraitika? but that is my thought! You will have a good time I'm sure.

Bob D, As Gerry has said have a walk round to Messonghi walk past the Messonghi Beach Hotel and take one of the turnings on the left, probably be better not to take the turning after the Messonghi Beach Hotel but the one after that and you will come to lovely Messonghi, make sure you walk right down onto the beach and along the boards. I'm sure you'll love it.

It looked busier than we have seen it for the last couple of years! Restaurants and bars all looked to have a lot of people in.. Same thing in Moraitika..

Hello Alan
We have been going to Messonghi for the past 5 years and stay in Messonghi village which is across the river from the Messonghi Beach hotel. The hotel you mention is no longer there or if it is we have not noticed it. Was the hotel on the beach or the road behind the beach??
Messonghi is a wonderful little place with many lovely tavernas serving good food with very friendly locals. As I have said we have been going for the past 5 years but many people we have met during our stays there have been going for over 20 years so that in itself speaks volumes.

Hello all,

We stayed in Corfu back in 1982 in a hotel called the Melissa Beach. It was just across the river from the Messonghi Beach Hotel. I cannot imagine that the Melissa Beach Hotel is still there but anyone familiar with the name might know what it's like there now?

I remember we used to pay the local lads 10 drachma to be ferried across the river in a rowing boat. Very dodgy on the way back after a few ouzos!

We recently went on a cruise starting out from Corfu town but didn't have the time to explore. We will probably visit next year as I would love to go back there. It's been 33 years and long, long overdue ...

Thanks for any info,
Alan

Hi

I have been going to Messonghi for 15years and love it, the prices in the bars/tavernas are excellent, my husband and I get a two course meal with wine for approx €20/25 euros, the beaches are lovely and the people superb and so welcoming. We stay at the Kerkyra Island apartments, we book through Olympic and the rooms are really clean, spacious and excellent for self catering, they also have a lovely clean swimming pool.
Hope you enjoy whatever you decide to book.

Well being a "southerner" I believe they may be "cheaper" than the N.E. resorts? Try the Christina Hotel in Messonghi I'm staying there in September.
There are a lot of tavernas in both but for a good day out try Petriti?

Hiya Pam & Martin and also to Asdmum (sorry don't know your name ).

Just read your posts re Aquarius, you may already have this info but just in case, the new owner has posted on TripAdvisor reviews. Marina Theaphitis (think that's the correct translation) has posted that the Aquarius will be open summer 2015. Tel; 00306944592272 for enquiries and bookings.

Good news for Messonghi!!!

Hi Asdmum

We've just heard via the Fans of Messonghi facebook page that the Aquarius is opening again this year.  We've sent an email but not had a reply yet.  Julie who lives in Messonghi is going to try and find out when it will be open and how we can contact them.  Have you booked anywhere yet? 

With a bit of luck it looks like we could all be back there next year at least, although we are thinking of going in August if it is open.

If you use facebook you should join the Fans of Messonghi page.

Keep me updated.

Love Pam x

Yes your probably right because it's normally mid May when they open isn't it. I think Dyonisos, Harry's, Bacchaus & Korali will be open when we get there. Do you think Victor will be open by the 18th May?
I think the Gemini will be open and the Appollo but the Panthean normally June.
What happened last year on the beach because there wasn't as many beds? We were in Messonghi the first 2 weeks in June and we were booked to go back in the September but due to illness had to cancel and wondered if anymore beds were put on the beach.

I wondered if anyone knows if the rubbish collections are going to start for the beginning of the season in Corfu this year. We were in Messonghi last year early June and the bins in the streets were overflowing and stinking and we were told that regular collections had not started and that the local council never seem to get it right when they need to increase collections! By the time we left later in June the collections were regular. They really need to start early May don't they?

Yes we liked the new place very pleasant and airy I think much better than the old place. Let's hope he's still in there when we go in 3 weeks time.
This is the earliest we have ever went to Messonghi, we normally go out 1st two weeks in June and mid September so we are expecting it to be a lot quieter.

Hi, we're fine thank you, I hope you and Simon are well.  Sadly we won't be going to Messonghi at our usual time this year but hopefully we might be able to go in August.

I don't have a contact for Andreas but I have contact numbers for Mary (Pandora Travel), this is not the Mary you stayed with, she is just a but further up from Andreas.  Her contact details are: home number 00302661075084 or at the office 003026610075329  Mary is really helpful, so she should be able to sort you out.

The Aquarius has been for sale on ebay and various Corfu property sights so hopefully someone will buy it and bring back some much needed tourists back to Messonghi.

Let me know how you get on. 

Pam x

There is a boat trip to Paxos from Messonghi, the travel shop where you book tickets is in a little street behind the river. You can get the little boat over from Moraitika rather than walking the longer road way.
The trip to Paxos also takes you to either Parga or Sivota on mainland Greece, plus plenty of swim stops.

Hi all,

Just wondering if you could help me on this.
Are engagement ring cheaper in Corfu than in Ireland?

I am looking to buy an engagement ring here. I will be staying near Messonghi and Moraitika.
Are there any good reliable jewelers near by? Any advise or tip? 

Thanks

I have been to Moraitika and Messonghi so suggest you try the North East coast which is mountainous and stunningly beautiful, very different to Moraitika, etc.  Kalami or Kassiopi.  Kalami has a pebble beach in a horseshoe bay which means the water is crystal clear, good tavernas with more choices in Agni reached by water taxi.  Kassiopi is set around a beautiful harbour with many tavernas to choose from.

My flight Monarch Mon 1643 return UK Birmingham on Mon 6th was 25 minutes late on arrival due to circling round NE Corfu. And took off 40 minutes late, so for me not too bad! But upon hearing other passengers I was very luckyEmbarrassed Sunday heavy rain all day, so spent the time in the tavernas/bars in  Messonghi so "wet outside wet inside"  Beer

I'd like to know if anyone in Messonghi at the moment or just home if things are shutting down or is it all still open?

Hi Elliemay
We do love Corfu & as you say you never can tell with the weather. We always go early September. I was also worried everything would be closing down we like Messonghi I know Morriatika will still have lots open but won't be venturing up there if we went due to some walking difficulties, this time round. This trip is purely & simply for a chill break...
