What to do on Paradise beach corfu ? 🏄♂️
Paradise Beach makes for the perfect place to sit back and relax, soaking up the scenery and bathing in the crystal blue waters. There are plenty of fish close to the shore, making it a good place to snorkel. There are also many small caves to explore whilst swimming. Around midday, the sun here is very strong and the pebbles get very hot! We recommend that you bring some shoes to avoid burning your feet, plenty of sunscreen and some mats or towels to sit on. There are umbrellas for hire, but perhaps consider bringing your own. Due to the deep waters and strong waves, this beach is less suitable for families with young children or weak swimmers. The beach is almost 500m long, and due to its limited accessibility, it’s doesn’t get crowded, even during the high season.
