“No Grotto and No Tour”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

It is a stupid way the spend some euro. You will see no real caves - just several 2 to 5 meters deep cavities with some colored rocks and blue water. So called trip is nothing more but a 40 minutes ride on a motorboat. Avoid at all cost. Better drink that money in nearbay tavernas.

“Magical place”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We loved the setting and the music and watching people jump from the cliff. The views are beautiful but there are 142 steps down to La Grotta which is okay but not so good coming back up but worth it. One of the nicest places in Paleo

“Easy to find a boat to take a short tour.”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

If you are lucky enough to get to Paleokastritsa beach, definitely take the time to take this tour. There is a small dock with quite a few boats available. The owners will negotiate a bit on pricing. I had 5 people who wanted to take the tour. A couple of the boats asked for 15 euro per person but I ended up asking a couple guys and paid 10 euro each. It is about a 30-40 tour and the grottos are very small. However, it really is beautiful to see what the inside of the small caves look like.

“La Grotta bar Paleokastritsa Corfu - WOW!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

What a fabulous place! We visited this hidden gem in Paleo a few weeks ago, once in the day and twice in the evening, and we were blown away each time! The setting is just unbelievable - a bar with many shelves of decking, set into the rock, playing great Buddha Bar music (chilling stuff), all looking down into the clearest waters (that is bbrrrr - cold by the way - well it is only June) of the grotto. Beautiful setting, breathtaking in fact. It is well worth the 100 odd steps down to the bar from the road...at night the lights are fab around the grotto, and in the day, it is a suntrap, and with a few cocktails to drink - its pure magic! (by the way - on the way back up to the road after a few drinks - it doesn't seem like 100 odd steps!!)
Well well worth a visit - I highly recommend this bar, and will definitely go back - very soon if poss!
