Moraitika (Corfu): Attractive narrow sand-and-pebble beach, Old-fashioned tavernas !!

Moraitika, Corfu

Moraitika situated on a coastal plain on the east coast of Corfu and has a backdrop of olive grove covered hills. Situated just 18 km from the capital Corfu Town and the airport. Benitses resort is 7 km north. Moraitika has grown a great deal over the years and is now a very developed resort that is tending to merge with the Messonghi resort on the other side of the river Messonghi, which forms the border between the two.

The original village of Ano Moraitika still exists on the hill above but is now dwarfed by the largely purpose-built resort that runs along either side of the coast road. The resort is based around this main strip which has plenty of bars, tavernas and restaurants, many offering British options alongside Greek favourites. There are plenty of lively clubs and discos open until late but it is not as wild as the youth Kavos.
The resort is a cosmopolitan mix of families, younger couples and those wanting plenty of lively entertainment, plentiful budget to mid-range accommodation and a sandy beach close to Corfu Town.

Moraitika village is just a few hundred meters above the beach, which is a little quieter. The beach is a popular, long mixture of sand and shingle with warm, shallow water for safe bathing and swimming for children. You can make use of a diving centre and other water sport facilities and enjoy boat trips and go-karting. There are some Roman remains to visit and a you should certainly include a couple of strolls up to the original village of Ano Moraitika, a contrast from the main resort with its narrow lanes and picturesque unspoilt little flower-decked houses.

Here you will find excellent tavernas, and superb views from the church of Theotokou Kimiseos. Fisherman still work from the river that separates Moraitika from Messonghi. The resort is served by regular buses south to Kavos and Messonghi and north to Benitses and the fascinating capital Corfu Town. The Aqualand waterpark is another popular excursions.
