In recent years, Kourouta has developed into one of the most cosmopolitan resorts in the prefecture of Ilia. The sands stretch for over 16 km, washed by the crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea, situated only 21 km (13 miles) from the port of Katakolon.
There, you will admire the golden sand and the deep blue water of Kourouta beach which is awarded every year with blue flag* from EU. Kourouta has a lot to offer. In the middle, next to the sea, is an unspoiled pine forest. Along the seafront are countless cafe bars, restaurants, Greek tavernas serving ouzo, fresh fish and traditional dishes, hotels, rooms to rent and a campsite.
Sunbeds and umbrellas are available as long as you order something form the cafeterias that provide them.
We assure you that your stay in Kourouta will be unforgettable.
