Mirtiotissa beach, the official nudist beach of the island.

Mirtiotissa is located on the western coast of the island and is the official beach for the nudists of Corfu. Being hailed as one of the most fine beaches all over the world, the place surely is less developed than nearby cosmopolitan Glyfada. One can only find a restaurant and the Mirtiotissa monastery, from which the beach was named. Waters are usually colder than Glyfada or Kontogialos, because of the currents and the rocks which surround the beach. Access to the beach is a little bit difficult; the road is narrow, winding and pebbly but you are awarded by one of the clearest and most secluded beaches Corfu can offer.
