Porto Timoni is clearly in the top 3 of the places to see in Corfu. This double cove is awesome ! It is accessible after a twenty minute walk from Afionas or by boat from Agios Georgios. The place is very peaceful and the landscapes are magnificent ! What makes this place special is obviously the double bay and the double beach. But also the fact that this place is not easily accessible, which limit the number of people on the beach. But also gives you the sensation that you really deserve to be there once you reached the beach !

How to get to Porto Timoni ?

Porto Timoni is in the north east of the island of Corfu. There are two options to reach Porto Timoni. Walking down to the beach from Afionas or taking a boat from Agios Georgios.

Get to Porto Timoni from Afionas

Reaching Porto Timoni from Afionas is the option that I recommend because Afionas is a very charming village. You will love its very narrow white streets with very colorful gardens and flowers. The view from Afionas is also stunning. And most importantlty for social networks addicts , you will be able to take a selfie with the double bay in the background !

You can also have a drink or a nice lunch in a great taverna called Anemos before walking down to the beach. By the way during high season it may be difficult to park in Afionas and Anemos has a private car park for its guests.

Walking down or riding a donkey ?

From Anemos restaurant walking down to Porto Timoni is a 20 minute hike following a nice path. The path is large enough to welcome one donkey and during high season you will probably have the option to ride one for a few euros. Maybe not the most confortable way but probably more exotic and less tiring than just walking.

There are two spots where you can take nice photos of the double bay but during high season you may have to queue to take your selfie. Unless if you choose to arrive in the early morning or late afternoon.

To get down the beach it is better to have proper shoes but I did it many times with flip flops without any problem. You need to watch your steps but the path is very safe.

Get to Porto Timoni from Agios Giorgios

You have several options to reach Porto Timoni by boat from Agios Georgios. The easiest is clearly to take a taxi boat. The price should be around 10 euros per person if you are enough on board. It will take only 5 minutes but you will have to agree with the boat man on the time to pick you up back from Porto Timoni.

The other option is to rent and drive yourself a boat for the day and explore the other beaches of the area. The price should be around 140 euros.

And the last option is to rent a pedal boat and reach Porto Timoni following the coast.

What to do at Porto Timoni

First you need to decide on which beach you want to stay. I personally prefer to stay on the beach facing Agios Georgios. It is less windy and I like the view of Agios Georgios in the background. If you brought mask and snorkel you can explore the underwater on both sides of the bay. You can also swim to a little rock in front of the beach.

Don’t forget to bring water, sun protection, a hat and if you are very sun sensitive an umbrella because you will not really find any shade on any of the two beaches. You may also want to bring a small foam mattress in addition to your bath towel because the beaches are mostly made up of pebbles.

In any case you will be lighter on your way up because you will probably have drunk all your water !

And then do whatever you would do on a regular Corfu beach : relax, sleep, read, swim, explore the surroundings !
