Agios Petros is one of the beaches of Paleokastritsa
, located on the small peninsula dominated by the famous monastery. It is very close to Agios Spyridonas beach but both are on the opposite sides of the peninsula.
Agios Petros is small (less than 80 meters in lenght), covered with sand mixed with pebbles, and the sea bottom is rocky as well. There are cliffs with sea caves from both sides of the beach and it is nice for swimming and snorkeling. In the summer sunbeds and parasols to rent are available and the place gets crowded. Behind Agios Petros is the large public parking of Paleokastritsa.
At the beach you will see only one building - this is the Corfu
Aquarium, exhibiting local sea life and reptiles.
