Issos beach: An african place in Corfu

Issos beach is the only place in our island where you can swim by giant and vast sand dunes, giving you the feel that you are somewhere in Africa. The lack of extensive touristic development (which is so present in other corfiot beaches) results in crystal clear waters and in an unspoilt enviroment. The northern side of the beach is a nudist beach, while the central and the southern part is more popular and busy. In the southern tip, the tourist village of Agios Georgios is located, where you can find some restaurants and bars. There is a small harbour too. Also, immediately east of Issos, there is lake Korission with its protected wildlife.

In conclusion, Issos beach offers you a relaxed and quality swimming and sunbathing experience. There are a lot of watersports too. You can also hire a wind surf board or do some kite if there is the appropriate wind.
