Agios Spiridon Beach - (Beaches on Corfu)

Emma L           

Just got back from the blue bay escape and all in all had a pretty good time....not much to do around the resort for adults and your kind of in the middle of nowhere but then its not advertised as anything else. Was a bit disappointed about the watersports as we were told there was canoes/pedaloes/etc at the hotel...from what we was all there was was a boat and a couple of rubber rings. We went on quite a lot of the first choice excusions but would recommend you used the small booking place just outside of the complex as its cheaper (we didn't know that there was another one when we booked) Also bear in mind that most of the trips start at corfu town which is over an hour away from the complex! The rooms were nice, new sand clean and there was plenty of room....but then we were given a four bed room for two of us so I suppose there would be! The beach at the back on the left was nice - although not that clean and the reps warned us about undercurrents so i do think its very safe for swimming to far out. Had heard there was going to be a problem with mozzies and wasps but with the help of repellant i didn't get bitten at all and we didn't see any wasps - quite a lot of worker bees (there are some bee hives a few minutes walk into the nature reserve at the back) but they were pretty placid. There is a really lovely beach if your prepared for about a ten minute walk...go out of the gate at the back and turn left, at the end of the path go over the bridge and carry on straight, through the trees...there are a could of nice beaches on the other side... The food was pretty good for buffet style and the pool was lovely, the location is pretty and ou can sit by the pool and listen to the sea, the aqua park is worth a visit (its not the tiny one you see going to the resort) Hope all this helps anyone who is going. Hope you have a great holiday ;-)
