The beautiful resort town of Benitses is
located 13 km from Corfu town. The former sleepy fishing village was
one of the first resort areas developed on Corfu, and yet still
remains one of the most popular. The scenic combination of ocean and
mountains offers a breathtaking scenery.

offers a variety of taverns, pubs, cafes and small souvenir shops.

to the top of the mountain or take advantage of one of the many day
cruises which depart from the local marina.
