Corfu has probably one of the most interesting geographical diversities of Greece. Hundreds of beaches with pebbles and golden sand, sheltered coves, caves and smaller islands make the most amazing landscapes you’ve ever seen! The sandy beaches are my favourite place to relax and Corfu has managed to compensate me in the best way: the magical beach of Halikounas and Korission lake with an unforgettable scenery!
It is in fact it nothing but a strip of sand of several kilometres separating the Ionian sea by Korission lake. In some specific spots it becomes quite wide, creating a striking landscape scheme. Most often you will come across waves quite large, but not dangerous, which add their own touch to the natural canvas . The surrounding landscape is wild, untouched, the dunes and the low, almost incomplete, vegetation reminds us of a real Sahara landscape, in one of the greenest Islands of Greece.
The beautiful scenery is harmonically combined with Korission lake, the island’s largest lake and a protected Natura area. In its wetland we can find 126 species of birds , thousands of butterflies while its sand is a color palette with small reeds, white lilies and 14 different orchid species.
After I met my friend at the beach bar we swum in the crystal-clear waters of Halikounas, we sun bathed in the golden sand, watching the adventurous swimmers kite-surfing and windsurfing. Before the sun goes down, we visit one of my favourite places, the Bioporos farm, to enjoy a dinner by the lake just before the sunset. We greet our friends Gennaios, Kriton and Iro, who have taken over Bioporos, keeping their parents culinary secrets and traditions, Costas and Agathi. We laugh, we hug and kiss; I haven’t heard from them since a lot of time and I’m really looking forward to hearing their news as we sit at the table. We drink the homemade wine, its sweet taste relaxes me and I gaze across the beautiful lake.
