Pelekas Beach Holidays

A picture-perfect Corfiot beach

Pelekas Beach is a Blue Flag stretch of coastline below Pelekas village. It’s a tranquil stretch of sand overlooked by mountains covered with olive groves and pine trees, perfect for families or laid-back couples. Pelekas Beach holidays offer the best of both worlds – long days spent by azure waters and golden sands, and excursions into the mountains where you can enjoy invigorating walks and marvel at the fantastic views of the bay. When you’re in the mood for some traditional food or music, head up to Pelekas village.

Here you’ll find a jumble of terracotta buildings and stone terraces folded into the green mountainside. There are fantastic local restaurants dishing up Corfiot favourites, and little cafés where impromptu music sessions happen in the evening. Holidays to Pelekas Beach are all about relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere while exploring the scenery around you.
