Benitses - Corfu (Greece)

Benitses. Benitses is located 12 kilometres south of Corfu town. In this busy tourist destination is a nice colourful harbour. There are a lot of touristic facilities in this area. Bars, discos and restaurants are plentiful and there are excellent opportunities for water sports. Although Benitses is very touristy, it can still maintain its traditional identity. A stroll through the cobbled alleys of the old village and a visit to the Roman Baths is more than worth it. The pebbly Benitses beach was one of the popular beaches of the German Emperor William 2nd. He had even built a bridge to walk closer to the water, part of the bridge can still be seen here. Just outside Benitses is a go-kart track. North of the village is the Shell Museum. The collection includes thousands of shells, it is the owner's private collection from the past 20 years. You can also see shark teeth, whale bones, snakes, scorpions and coral.
Benitses is a nice place to stay, there are more than 1000 hotels and apartments in all price ranges, from luxury to basic.
