mixture of sand and pebbles and offers a pleasant environment for sunbathing
and swimming. Although it is only few meters away from the main street going
across Paleokastritsa, the beach is hidden away by the olive trees and the
sloped terrain. As a result, it is a peaceful place away from the street noise.
“Agia Triada” is an organised public beach. The showers and the changing cabins
on the beach are public amenities and free of charge. There are also sun-beds
and umbrellas to rent, boat hire, water-sports and the Achilleon Diving Center.

The historical centre of Corfu town is delimited by the two fortresses.
Along the east side thereΆs the ancient fortress on the sea, while on the west side thereΆs the new one.
During the past the two fortresses of Corfu were linked by large walls, so that the inhabitants could live safe inside.
The walls were destroyed and today there are only two of the four gates of the town. One is called “Porta di Spilia” (Spilia gate), known also as Boati arch, just in front of the old port.
The second one is the gate of San Nicola, placed under the level of the coast road, at the end of the Esplanade.
