We are hiring a car from Sunshine rental, I am sure they can give you a map but we are using a portable GPS for navigation.

We picked up a car right at the pier. They gave us suggestions and a map and it was very easy to navigate around the island. There aren't that many roads. When you come back, just follow signs to Keykyra and you will come back to town and the dock. This is the Greek name for Corfu town. If you look for signs pointing you to Corfu, you will be looking for a very long time.

We went to Paleokastritsa and it was a real winner. Lovely beach and wonderful boat rides around the shore and into the caves. There is a parking lot across the street from the beach if you can't find on street parking. Don't forget to visit the monastery when you are there.

Wish we could go back. It was a terrific day.

hello

I would like to see Palokastritsa and thank for your feedback.

I try my best to visit the monastery too.
