Halikounas is different from all nudist beaches in Corfu. There are no cliffs and no greenery here. Instead, it’s a long and flat expanse of sand with calm, warm waters, in fact, this is the largest sandy beach on the west side of Corfu.
Halikounas is so long that it never feels crowded, that’s the reason why it is easy to find places where you can go au naturel without disturbing anybody. Outside the main tourist season, you can have the whole place just for yourself if you arrive early morning.
The shallow waters are perfect for swimming, while the soft sand is ideal for sunbathing. On the public side, you can go kite-surfing and windsurfing and also rent lounge chairs and umbrellas, so this is a really good choice for any type of beachgoer.
Arillas is a narrow and rocky beach, which actually keeps some people away. However, this is also what makes it a great beach in Corfu for naturists and enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea.
To get to the clothing-optional section, go to the north side. After you maneuver around a small rocky outcrop, you will find your own paradise. The fact that this beach is so long and can accommodate hundreds of people without disturbing each other makes Arillas one of Corfu best nudist beaches!
Knowns as one of the nicest beaches in Corfu, Glyfada must be on your Corfu nude beaches list if you would love to relax in a fantastic environment surrounded by golden sand and crystal-clear waters.
This is an easily accessible place with lots of parking, therefore the best to come on weekdays to avoid crowds. Regardless of the day, if you get there early, you will have a free umbrella. The naturist section is at the southern end, beyond the large rocks.
A beloved Corfu beach by tourists is Agios Stefanos since it has an ideal location close to the port. There is another thing that attracts people, both nudists and non-nudist, which is the mineral-rich clay that can be found on the northern part of the beach. It is very beneficial, so applying it to the skin is like a beauty treatment!
The main beach offers nice restaurants and cafes, as well as showers and restrooms. Also, there is a small marina here making it a nice place to walk around.
For nude sunbathing, the best part is the eastern end, just behind the mud section behind the large rocks. Here you can enjoy not only the beautiful scenery but also taking a dip in the balmy waters of the Ionian Sea.
Antinioti West Beach
Antinioti West is at the northern tip of the island, which makes it one of the most secluded nudist beaches in Greece. Coming here feels like exploring the wild side of the island that is uncrowded so it is no surprise why naturists love to come here.
You won’t find any bars or restaurants, so bring your own food and drink. It’s a great location for snorkeling, and it’s even better for watching sunrises and sunsets.
Avlaki is among the top Corfu naturist beaches because of its very lush surroundings and breathtaking views to the hills. There is even a nature reserve here and several footpaths that lead to other small, secluded spots where you can enjoy the sun and sea. There are no bathrooms or showers, but that’s part of the beauty. The water is very shallow and safe for wading or swimming.
Since you will not find soft white sand here, be sure to bring your water shoes, especially since this is a long beach and you will have to walk to the nudist section. Pack your cooler with some snacks and drinks, bring a sunshade so you can spend a day enjoying Avlaki’s chilling atmosphere.

Marathias is another beach in Corfu naturists visit quite often. It is windier than most beaches in the area, especially in the late afternoon, but the water here is the warmest in Corfu so that’s the reason why Marathias (sometimes called Malta beach) is a popular spot.
It is just 30 km from Corfu city and relatively easy to find, you just need to follow the signs from the main road.
