Almyros (or Almiros) is a beach on the north coast of Corfu
island. Actually it is the natural continuation of Acharavi
beach and stretches over almost 3 km, reaching the Antinioti lake to the west. For many the beaches of Acharavi and Almyros are one and the same place with two names, and it is really hard to say exactly where the border between the two of them is.
Almyros is a wide beach, a mixture of coarse sand and small and large pebbles. Sunbeds and parasols are available, as well as a few beach bars but it never gets crowded and looks empty even in high season. There are hotels both at the beachfront and scattered around the vast valley behind the sea, and depending on the location you may be 10 to 800 meters from the beach. The houses and hotels are also away one from each other and it is very quiet and peaceful. Almyros has only a few tavernas and a mini market but Acharavi is very close for plenty of options to eat, shops and services. The beach of Agios Spyridon
is also nearby and you can reach it even on foot via a coastal path (approximately 3 km).
The former abandoned village of Perithia
in this area is another point of interest, as well as the weird rock formations around Sidari
(15 km) and Peroulades
