Halikounas ( Corfu ) is a 3km long and isolated sandy beach located near the village of Agios Matheos on the southern side of the island. The destination is a nice alternative for peaceful holidays with sand dunes and wonderful crystalline waters which guarantee a fun swimming experience especially for the children. It lacks any kind of tourist facilities thus it almost looks deserted. If you want some peace and quiet, there are some isolated spots on either side of the beach for total privacy.
The area is ideal for those who love water sports as well. A road separates the beach with the famous Lake Korission, one of the main attractions 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.
Many modern amenities are found in a close distance like hotels, restaurants and bars. From Halikounas, you have a perfect view to an ancient monastery perched on the top of Mount Agios Mattheos. The beach is located 5 km from the popular resort of Agios Georgios.
