In the northern part of the island is hidden the quiet beach of Saint Spyridon of Peritheia with the characteristic chapel of the same name. The clear shallow waters and the sandy beach make it an ideal choice for families with children.

Saint Spyridon of Peritheia, a beach nex to a lagoon

The beach is divided into two parts by a small rocky part. In the immediate area around the beach stands the Antinioti lagoon, one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Corfu and an extremely important wetland, while the western end of the coast coincides with the lagoon.

There is ample parking in the parking lot, however for those who love hiking, there is an amazing path that starts from the Antinioti lagoon and ends in the adjacent area of ​​Almyros, passing through a forest with unique natural beauty.

The beach is organized, has sunbeds, umbrellas and showers, and although it is not touristically developed there are some traditional tavernas. Nearby is the monastery of St. Catherine founded in 1713, inside which there are remarkable frescoes of the 18th and 19th century. Embraced by wild vegetation and left at the mercy of time, it ties in with the natural beauty of the landscape; it looks like it came out of a fairy tale.

The peninsula – cape that is located behind the typical old house is called Lagopidima and behind it hides a characteristic point – this pier of Pretsapou, overlooking the characteristic rocks Spyridonissia. The locals also call the wider area near which there are villas for rent Pretsapou and Saint Spyridon Beach of Peritheia.
