Halikounas, located in the south west of the island and 30 km from Corfu town, is one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches on the island. The 2.5 km long sandy beach is essentially a natural boundary between Korission lake and the sea protecting the lake from the turbulent sea.

Retaining its natural beauty due to the strong winds in the area, the coast is a favourite choice for wind and kite surfing enthusiasts. It maintains a low profile and is famous as a place for relaxation for those who choose to bathe here.
