The excellent sandy Marathias beach

   It is a rainy day in Corfu today but let's cheer ourselves up with those summer images of Marathias beach. This wide and sandy beach is located near Vitalades, a village in south Corfu. It is not as exploited as Glyfada. The middle part of it is the busiest one with two beach bars offering free umbrellas and chairs and the northern and southern stretch being less busy and preferred by nudists. The surf is strong enough there due to the beach's position facing the southwest. Thus, when winds are strong, it is a perfect spot for surfers.
    The beach is accessible only by car. The nearest bus passes from Vitalades but it is a kinda long walk from the village to the beach.
