We find it has everything we look for with well kept clean beach with lovely small unspoilt tavernas
for just a drink or lovely home cooked meals.

I reviewed this beach in 2012 and gave it a great rating. Returning in September 2013 I have no reason to change my mind. Sadly other reviewers have criticised the presence of a binman clearing the litter bins and the contents saying this does not give a good impression. Having been brought up in a seaside town I know that bins need regular emptying often more than once a day when a resort is popular. To my mind this criticism only indicates how well run the resort is in clearing bins regularly.
Great efforts are also made to clear the beaches of any washed up flotsum together with items which careless beach users may have left behind.
While the beach is not particularly wide it is extensive and apart from the very popular central area it is possible to walk to the south and north parts of the beach where quieter enjoyment of the sand and sea are possible. Occasionally high water means a little wading is needed to access the two ends of the beach.
This year there are some superiour sun beds available and iced water was provided as a bonus.
All in all I can only say Arillas Beach is great and, having stayed in the resort now seven years in a row, highly recommend its charms.

We got here by scooter, as it was cloudy in our resort (Sidari, North Corfu) and we headed this direction (West Corfu), as it seemed to be sunny that way .... And it was! The sandy/pebbly beach was quite narrow, but lovely and quiet. The water quite shallow and very clear. Very tempting to swim to one of the small islands nearby - it must be possible! Great meal in a family run taverna, called Gratelas (I believe, hope I got it right), lovely fresh fish served here and the prices, well - nearly felt embarrassed when we paid, so reasonable!
And such friendly service!
Also, some really charming villages nearby, f.e. Afionas (where the streets are so narrow, only a donkey can pass through and you will need to leave any vehicle near the town square). A Must See! Shame we left it too late to explore properly! Will certainly visit more extensively next time!

We arrive here and find the binman trying to empty beach-side bins, the contents suggest that the clientele are just buying cheap boose and take-away and repairing to the beach to partake!
Not a good image, when it is obvious that the strip has some good eateries.
