Halikounas beach is ideally located 25 km southwestern of Corfu town. The sandy beach that stretches for more than 3 km is considered one of the most beautiful coastal areas in the Ionian complex. Halikounas is ideal for those who love water sports as well. The mile-long sandy beach and the lunch regularly occurring side-shore wind from the north-western ensure optimal conditions for kite surf. A road separates the beach with the famous Lake Korission, one of the main attractions of the area which is the home for numerous endangered bird species. It is nestled in the midst of green rolling hills where one comes across verdant olive groves, citrus orchards and beautiful vineyards.
