Things to see and do in Messonghi
Holidays in Messonghi are the perfect chance to enjoy the excellent beach, swim in the clear water and soak up the sun. Even in high season, the beach never gets too crowded, leaving you the chance to relax in the surroundings of the hills and olive groves in peace. The beach has spectacular views during the day and is magical in the evenings.
The Aqualand Waterpark should be top of your to-do list if you have kids, and there are also opportunities to take boat trips during the day. Chlomos, an old hillside village, is worth a visit to see the church and enjoy the views of countryside and the sight of the islands of Paxos and Antipaxos on clear days.
Lake Korision is saltwater lake on the west coast of Corfu, home to wildlife including egrets, terrapins and kingfishers. On the way, you can stop off at the ruins of a large Byzantium fortress.
Be sure to take a trip to Corfu Town during your holiday to Messonghi, where you can admire the historic architecture, including Sant Spiridon’s church at the centre, and sample the many shops and restaurants around the capital.
Take a walk along the coast road to the unspoilt fishing village of Boukari, stop at the taverna and enjoy a seafood lunch
As well as a supermarket in the village, there are plenty of restaurants on the main road and lining the beachfront, from tavernas offering traditional Greek dishes to international cuisine. While there are a few bars in Messonghi, its sister resort of Moraitika, only a short taxi ride away, is the place to head for lively bars and clubs.
