On the west coast of Corfu, in front of Corfu town, you will find several nice beaches and nice places. My favourite place is Palaiokastritsa. You can rent a boat from the small port or from a small beach club called La Grotta and explore all the nice beaches around. At the end of the day you can visit the monastry on top of a hill above the port and buy there some olive oil.
