Swim Trek





"Paleokastritsa Caves & Skeloudi Isle Swim"

Moderate 100%

Paleokastritsa is a location on the North West part of Corfu Island. Sea waters over here are particulary clean and fresh cause of the frequent NW streams & winds while their color is deep blue cause of the depth, which can arrise as much as 25 meters in certain points. These factors assure the casual trek swimmer that enjoyment in the sea is guaranted.
This swim is about completing a big circle all around Paleokastritsa beaches, caves & rocks while visiting the very small isle of Skeloudi, a very well know place for scuba divers.
The Skeloudi isle / rock has two sides. One is shallow and the other is really deep, giving the swimmer the opportunity to look down into all the different palettes of deep blue color. The rock of that isle penetrates the sea onto the ocean's bottom, being an extremely sight seeing by its own. This is actually the place that most of the scuba divers visit for their big adventure. The small isle is at least 200m from the closest rock shore while it's circumference is about 450m. From this isle we will be in position to look to Angelokastro, a knight's castle built in the 11th century on the highest rock of the area.
Leaving Skeloudi behind us, we will be swimming towards the shore and the big rock that holds the monastery of Virgin Mary on the top. Two hundred meters of deep ocean under us will give an almost freezing effect while tons of water are lying bellow. We are actully heading to the most know beach of Paleokastritsa, the Agios Spiridon beach, where the most of the tourists take their baths. In the bay of that beach we will visit an attraction, a big cave. While the most of the tourists apporach this site only by boats, we, on the other hand, will have the privilige to swim in it.
What follows next is the crossing of the bay, side to side, loooking for more rock shore to discovre new colors and uneaven bottom.
Lifeguard escort and RESCUE BOAT will provided for the swim.
 
 
 
 









Swim Trek





"Ortholithi Swim"

Moderate 100%

Agios Gordios beach is one of the most famous on the island specially for the sand, the scenic rock cliffs, the green sea and the numbers of its visitors. But what gives this sandy beach a great  charateristic it's a big tall rock on it's left side, which is know by the name of Ortholithi (Standing Stone).
Our swim will start from the main beach on the left side and close to the cliffs, where the sea is relatively shallow for the whole swim. Our target is to reach Ortholithi rock, explore the area, have a small reast on a small sandy beach close ot it and get back to the main shore again.
By moving close to the cliffs, we will be able always to admire the sandy bottom with some fallen rocks into it. The sea in the area has a green color and the waters are clrystal clear most of the time.
Ortholithi is a place some snorkeling tourists dare to reach for an explore. But swimming to it is something totally different.
This big rock is just after a small boat port that we will meet in our course. Instead of getting straight to the rock, we prefer to just overpass it and head towards the deep sea before making a left turn describing a nice circle around it. Afterwards we get to the shallow small sandy shore that resides between the rock and the cliffs, have some nice refreshments and a rest stop for chatting and fun.
By that shore rest point we will be able to admire not only a big part of the North - West coast of Corfu Island, towards the other famous sandy beaches like Glyfada and Pelekas, but also the Agios Gordios beach itself which will look so far way, actually 1.5km. Yes it is pretty amazing how far you can can go sometimes by using just some swim capabilities.
Our way back to the beach will be a great finale. Once on shore it will be time for a small snack enjoyng that feelling, that we have conquered by swimming that lonely big rock, away from the beach and 99% of its visitors.
Lifeguard escort and RESCUE BOAT will provided for the swim.
