Pelekas

Small church in the village center

Pelekas

Pelekas is a small but lively picturesque village situated on a hilltop on the west coast of Corfu. It is known mainly for Kaiser Throne - a spot with panoramic view from which you can see almost the entire island from above.

Since the village is built on a hill, the streets are small and narrow and driving through it is a bit uncomfortable but it has wonderful view of the sea and the sunset. Part of the village overlooks the east coast and Corfu Town, and the other part has view toward the west seaside. There are rooms to rent in small hotels, tavernas, cafes, two bakeries and a supermarket. The beach of Pelekas is called Kontogialos or Pelekas Beach and it is 1 km away from the village. It is sandy, with several beach bars and volleyball nets. Another beach nearby is Glyfada, sandy and shallow.

Kaiser Throne is on the top of Pelekas and you can reach it by car or on foot through the oldest part of the village. We do recommend the second as thus you can have a walk in the tiny alleys and see authentic old houses. Parking is available either at the village entrance (at a small parking lot) or in front of Kaiser Throne.
