The beach consists of fine pebble and is famous for its clear water and striking blue-green colours. In fact Paleokastritsa is set in one of a string of six spectacularly si tuated coves, here the rocks provide a haven for diving enthusiasts and Snorkeling in the clear waters is unsurprisingly a popular holiday activity here.
The resort has been a favourite with British holidaymakers for many years there are tavernas and accommodations scattered around the resort, many in excellent locations. Paleokastritsa is not for those seeking lots of lively nightlife but there are plenty of tavernas, bars and pubs to keep you busy if you wish.
In addition to the beach and water sports, there are plenty of sights to see on your Paleokastritsa holiday, including the ruins of ancient monasteries and castles dating from the seventeenth century. In addition to the wonderful local and beautiful scenery it's not far to the two thousand five hundred acre of mountainous terrain known as Ropa Valley located a short drive away from Paleokastritsa, and well worth a trip for nature lovers.
