1 Chomoi Beach

Chomoi is one of the most magical beaches in the island. The sandy part of the beach itself is actually very thin.

There are sheer cliffs behind it but the waters are crystal clear and sand is soft

2 Vlaherna Monastery

 

 

This is undoubtedly one of the most famous attractions on Corfu. For the Greeks the song "Kerkyra me to Pontikonisi..." instantly springs to mind, while foreigners are certain to have heard or seen impressive photographs of it. 

Pontikonisi has been associated with many legends over the years. One is about the ship that brought Odysseus to the island of Corfu. During the terrible storm, Odysseus was washed up on the shore of the island and the god Poseidon turned his boat into the green island

*The distance is only 35 minutes from Gongis Studios

 

3 Paleokastritsa

 

 

Paleokastritsa is the most touristic and beautiful place in the island. The whole area is amazing but the beach is absolutely breathtaking.

Paleokastritsa is considered as one of the loveliest places in Corfu and in whole Greece.

4 Halikounas beach 

Halikounas Corfu: Halikounas beach is ideally located 1km  of GONGIS STUDIOS .

 

The sandy beach that stretches for more than 3 km is considered one of the most beautiful coastal areas in the Ionian complex. Halikounas is a nice alternative for peaceful holidays with sand dunes and wonderful crystalline waters which guarantee a fun swimming experience especially for the children. It lacks any kind of tourist facilities thus it almost looks deserted.

 

In case you don't want to be at the centre of attention, there are some nice and isolated spots on either side of the beach for total privacy. Halikounas is ideal for those who love water sports as well.

 

A road separates the beach with the famous Lake Korission, one of the main attractions of the area which is the home for numerous endangered bird species. It is nestled in the midst of green rolling hills where one comes across verdant olive groves, citrus orchards and beautiful vineyards. 

 

 

5 Angelokastro

 

Angelokastro is a byzantine castle that can be found on the highest part of the island. It’s very beautiful but what’s even better is the gorgeous view of the whole Corfu.

 

It is located at the northwest coast near Paleokastritsa and built on particularly precipitous and rocky terrain..

*The distance is only 70 minutes from Gongis Studios

 

+1 Saint Spyridon Church

 

Within the idyllic town of the island can be found a very picturesque and traditional church with a characteristic red color on its highest point.


It is a single-nave basilica and its bell tower is the highest in the Ionian Islands. It is the most famous church in Corfu.

+2 Argirades Village 

Argirades Corfu: Argirades is a large picturesque village on the way to Lefkimi, located 33 km south of Corfu Town. ( The distance is only 5 minutes from Gongis Studios) 

 

The village lies on the slopes of a verdurous hill, offering lovely scenes to the surrounding area. The architectural heritage of the village has its roots in the days of the Venetian rule with houses that reflect the strategic position of the area. Narrow streets and well-preserved houses are some of the characteristics remaining from that time and one of the reasons that the village was declared a preserved settlement in 1977.

 

The population of the village reaches 2,000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and tourism.
