Messonghi is one of the first tourist resorts to be developed in Corfu. The vast pebbly beach and all sorts of amenities are there to please and satisfy even the most demanding of visitors.
Messonghi river, which falls into the beach, gave its name to the old fishing village. The afforested coasts with the moored caïques (since the river is a navigable one) add their own particular colour to the hamlet’s centre.
There are small boats departing daily from the dock of Messonghi for Syvota, Paxi and Antipaxi.
To the south of Messonghi, along the beach road, one can visit summer holiday hamlets (such as Boukari and the fishing village of Petritis), famous for their fresh fish tavernas.
