Paramonas is the name of previously unknown beach on the west coast of Corfu
. It is actually the port of the island mountain village of Agios Mattheos
(with a population of 1500 inhabitants), a few miles from the coast.
The beach is beautiful, with soft sand. The water is quite shallow around the coast but there are often waves and they make the sea look deeper than it really is. A beach taverna operates in the summer and provides sunbeds and parasols. Fresh water showers and changing cabin are also available, as well as water pedalos and small boats to rent. The area is very quiet, with one large hotel and small houses with rooms and studios to rent. A narrow coastal road connects Paramonas with Pentati
and Agios Gordios
and you can glimpse scattered villas hidden among greenery. This is one of the calmest and less visited places on the island.
