Messonghi is a small resort situated in the east of Corfu. It blends quite seamlessly into the neighbouring resort of Moraitiki and is known for being that resort’s quieter neighbour. This 2 for 1 combo works well though as you can relax by day in Messonghi and then travel to Moraitiki for a busier nightlife. Messonghi has its own gorgeous beach and is a popular sunshine retreat with families in particular.

The resort is at its most lively during the summer period that runs from spring until autumn but never gets overwhelmingly busy. Temperatures tend to reach at least the high 20s and often the lower 30s throughout these summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper from autumn to spring. However, much of the tourism here is focused around the vibrant summer months and around the beach so we recommend a visit during this time of year.
Messonghi’s beach is definitely one of the town’s main attractions due to its soft sands and crystal clear waters that rarely get overwhelmed with visitors. There is plenty of space for the kids to play and the waters are generally very calm and safe too. For those who want to explore more of what Corfu has to offer, this town can be a great place to make base. From Messonghi, there are boat tours at the northern end of the beach with locals ready to show you all of the best sights and give the best tips!
The resort has plenty of hotels, apartments and villas to choose from and this is mainly due to the crossover with Moraitiki. Across the two resorts, there is a wide variety of choice in terms of style and affordability to suit whatever your preferences are. There is also a very good choice of restaurants in the region with traditional Greek cuisine and seafood being the specialities of Messonghi. The venues by the seafront offer the most amazing views to accompany a succulent meal.
