Awarded with the Blue Flag, Kontokali beach is situated very close to the center of the city at a distance of only 5 kilometers, just in front of the homonymous settlement. Kontokali beach is fully organized with deck-chairs and parasols for which you must pay. It has got deep blue, shallow waters suitable for children and for those who do not know how to swim well. It is covered with sand and tiny pebbles. Just across from Kontokali beach is located the uninhabited islet Lazaretto and further away you can distinguish the Old Fortress in the of Corfu.
On the beach you will find a large hotel. You can use its facilities such as the beach bar, the restaurant and the showers. For those who prefer more «disorganized» situations there is a beach, also with sand and tiny pebbles, just before the entrance to the settlement, on a large curve. Locals and mostly the elderly prefer this beach for a quick deep and a swim. Access to Kontokali beach is very easy, either by bus or by car.
