Latest reviews on Glyfa's beaches

Dassia beach
10 Zevin Marlow

The hotel is situated in a perfect location, right by the coastline. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. The restaurant offers affordable prices and serves excellent food. Non-hotel guests can enjoy sun loungers and umbrellas by the sea for just €6 (including 2 sun loungers and an umbrella). I highly recommend this place.

Mparmpati beach
10 Vethan

This beach is a definite must-visit for its incredible seafood and inviting atmosphere! The place is stunning and the service is exceptional. I tried the scallops, tataki, and prawns, and they were all perfect and incredibly tasty.

Gouvia beach
6 Lirva

While this beach may not be the most impressive in Corfu, it is still a worthwhile destination for those seeking a relaxing day in Gouvia. The picturesque view is accompanied by the occasional overhead plane, which adds entertainment without causing any disturbance. Unfortunately, the water is not crystal clear and snorkeling is not an option here. Additionally, the muddy sea bed makes standing in the water uncomfortable, but swimming is still enjoyable. Fortunately, there are some excellent dining options nearby. In summary, this beach is not exceptional, but it is not disappointing either.

The sandy shore is swarming with rows upon rows of sunbeds, umbrellas, and loungers that leave no room for the free-spirited beachgoers to stretch their legs or bask in the sun. Unless you are an early bird, you'll be out of luck finding a vacant spot to lay your towel. It's a shame that the locals' greed for money has tarnished the charm of this otherwise lovely location.
