Located on the west coast of Corfu, Ermones is little more than a chilled-out beach, sheltered in a cove from the rest of the island. Visitors on holidays to Corfu here like to keep it their own little secret, enjoying spectacular sunsets surrounded by dramatic scenery. Behind the olive tree-fringed beach are a handful of amenities, including watersports hire, shops, friendly tavernas and local transport information.
Ermones boasts the Blue Flag award for its striking sands. With clean shores and clear waters even in high season, the beach is safe and family-friendly. Shallow waters make paddling splash-tastic, while olive groves offer shade against the hot sun. The golden shingle beach is 300 metres long, and it's quite quiet, so there's plenty of room to catch some rays.
If you're looking for a change of scenery, Glyfada beach is just three kilometres south of Ermones. Another Blue Flag winner, Glyfada is top of the list for watersports, and there are a number of lovely cafes lining the sands which make it a lovely place to grab lunch.
Both beaches sit on the west of the island, and when evening falls there's no better place to catch the famous Corfu sunset. Staying in Ermones you've got front row seats every night.
