Paradise Beach is one of the most well known beaches in Corfu. It is extremely beautiful and we get asked about it all the time. First of all, Paradise beach is the tourist name. The real name is called Chomoi. Pronouced “homeeee”.
Unfortunately, for the past couple years it has been off limits for saftey precautions (rocks falling). This year we will have to see what the decision is.
However, if it still is off limits there is a beach next to it that is similar and also very beautiful. Stelari beach.
