The vibrant village of Paleokastritsa is set along the rocky north-west coastline in Corfu and is one of the best known and oldest established resorts on the island.
Paleo (as it is known for short) is home to a selection of pretty tavernas, cafes and craft shops and is surrounded by beautiful wooded hillsides. Its many headlands and stunning bays are said to be the place where Odysseus met Nausicaa for the first time, and the ancient monastery of Theotokos dating back to 1225 is well worth a visit.
Paleokastritsa is well-known centre for diving and snorkeling, perfect for those seeking a taste of adventure. Boats regularly leave from Paleo to explore the sea caves, crystal clear waters and remote beaches along the spectacular coastline.
