Paleokastritsa Beach, Paleokastritsa

Allegedly the place where the mythical encounter between Odysseus and Nausicaa took place, Paleokastritsa Beach sits lapped by the deep blue Ionian Sea and ringed by lush vegetation. A large rugged rock, considered by many locals to be Odysseus' petrified ship, sticks out of the water just off the coastline. One side of this rock curves like an extended sail of an ancient galley, attracting curious divers to investigate what lies below the surface of the water. Swim, snorkel, or bask on the sand, but also leave a little time to visit a 13th century monastery located on the rocky hill just above the beach.

  • The beach is just a tiny part of the coast of this picturesque bay, which is located in paleokastritsa. You can beach, and you can take advantage of a boat ride to see more from the water side. Recommend. Beautiful water color, different shades in different places, due to strong salinity and the presence of calcium compounds. Great experience!

  • Quiet beach when we were there, though it was shoulder/off season. Actually 2 beaches, across the parking lot from each other, one more protected than the other.  more »
