Arkoudilas is a remote and wild place south of Corfu. The area is uninhabited. Corfu’s most southern beach, 50km from Corfu Town, Arkoudilas Beach is a large 1km long sandy beach, surrounded by high cliffs, with great view and crystal water. The water is shallow but only a few metres from the shore, it gets deep. A bit difficult to access, makes it ideal for those who want quiet, away from the busy organized beaches.
It’s a 30 minute walk, 2.5km from Kavos, or you can go there with a vehicle much faster. If you’re arriving by car, the sandy gravel road is very bumpy and narrow, but it is possible to get to the beach. Not ideal though for a ordinary car.
A small stand operates there during the summer months and offers sunbeds with umbrellas for around 3€ and cold drinks. Unfortunately no further facilities, so toilets, showers or lifeguards are not provided.
Tip: Bring water or food to stay longer, but don’t leave a mess! This is a beautiful place and please help to keep it clean.
Warning: A little caution is advised as some wasps are buzzing around even though you don’t have food with you.
Warning: After prolonged rain, it is best to avoid going there by car.
