La Grotta Bay

La Grotta is a great place located in beautiful Paleokastritsa resort. A must go place when visiting the Corfu island in Greece. On the cliffs there is a bar with some nice terases where one can enjoy a drink after a good swim. The excellent music creates a nice atmosphere, especially at night when the lights are on. Here is some information on the bar:

La Grotta bar was founded in the late 60's when the Rizos Hotelier family had the inspiration to develop a cave in the beautiful craggy bay underneath the hotel into a bar, blending perfectly into the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

Down 142 steps, today this famous Corfu beauty spot is open right through the day for drinks, snacks and a swim in the crystal clear natural blue lagoon.

In the evening, enjoy a cocktail next to the sea, listening to chill-out music ........ the ultimate romantic bar.


The picture was taken after sunset. The weather was nice, light breeze and clear sky. I used the artificial light that was reflected from a huge cliff from behind me as a light source.
