Searching for warm sea water

To any destination experts or current vacationers: have you visited any beaches recently and found the water warm? Like bath water warm? I am happy to drive the distance for this....it doesn't have to be close to Kassiopi (where we are staying). We are here for 6 more days....and I'm really craving some truly warm water. The beaches in Kassiopi are a tad chilly (for me).

Many beaches in Corfu have Blue Flag ratings, partly due to the fact that we are an island and the deeper sea currents replace the water on resort beaches. Inevitably, the cleanest water is the freshest and probably the coolest. The sea is currently at about 25C. If you really must have warmer than this, then seek out the shallower, sheltered beaches on the east of the island where the water is more static.

The water temperarure on the main beach at Sidari is usually like a warm bath, as it's so shallow. You have to go a fair way out to get it above your knees.

The several smaller coves and beaches in the Canal D'Amour area are usually warm as well and it is a very scenic area - much more so than the main beaches.

Try St George south or one of the larger beaches on the west coast where there are less hills and mountains. Apparently the spring water from the mountains enters the sea keeping it cooler. I find that you swim through cold patches but it's not really cold as such.

Paelo is known for having the coldest waters on the island. Of course, it isn't cold like it would be here in the uk, but if swimming in warm waters is high on your list, Paelo waters won't tick that box!

Most definitely Apraos Beach...I could not believe how warm it was. it was like sitting in a bath, truly. Best thing is, it is shallow so you can just lie down on the sea bed with it just lapping over you. Have been going to Corfu for years and only just found this little gem.x
