Chalikounas beach is a huge, sandy shore approximately 3 kilometers long on the south-western shore of Corfu. It is one of the most impressive beaches of the island as this large, sandy shore extends along Lake Korission, separating the lake from the sea. The natural environment in Chalikounas beach is unique, unaltered even by tourism. Lake Korission, moreover, is the most significant wetland of the whole island and it is a preserved area. There is a small, wooden bridge which allows you to cross to the opposite shore at that point where the lake connects and flows into the sea. In the surrounding area extends a dense forest full of impressive cedar-trees.
