welcome to MESSONGHI Corfu (Kerkyra)

Messonghi resort located twenty kilometres South from Corfu Town, It is a Traditional Greek village built on a rise on the east coast of Corfu island. The main road to Lefkimmi and Kavos passes through here, and,in the area of Benitses, Moraitika, northwards, this road runs along the coast, separated from the sea only by a narrow strip of sandy beaches and rocks. As far back as Roman times, and still today, this coastline has been the first choice of the summer holidaymaker. Messonghi Beach itself is divided by the Messonghi River, which flows into the sea at this point. At every point you will find beaches with warm water, ideal for bathing, and plenty of tourist services.
There you can find small secluded bays to a long beautiful sandy beach. During the day the life revolves around the beaches and the water sports and then as night falls the whole resort is one big party.
You can find from small typical Greek tavernas serving traditional dishes to luxury restaurants which serve a variety of menus. The many Bars and discos play any music you wish to hear, from golden oldies to the latest hits.


Messonghi beaches: Stretch of fairly narrow coarse sand with some shingle and small pebbles, running in a sweep to a headland to the S; a few fishing caiques lie at anchor offshore. Sunbeds and parasols for hire. Water sports and pedalloes; shallows suitable for children.
Eating out: Small selection of restaurants and tavernas, a few lining the beach. Greek and international cuisine. Lots of fish. Public transport: Buses that actually drive into Messonghi are fairly infrequent (4?6 times a day to Corfu Town and neighbouring resorts). More frequent service from neighbouring Moraitika, running N to Corfu Town and S to Kavos. Car and scooter rental. Bike hire.
