    Mon Repos Beach Greece Kerkyra Island Corfu 491 00

In the Mon Repos Estate there is a protected cove with a stone jetty locals call “the Queen’s bridge”. The old spring,the long-abandoned guard-post, and the grey herons (genus Ardea cinerea) that make their nests in the taller tree branches make for a unique landscape. From here south to Messonghi the sea is zoned and protected as part of the Natura 2000 network for its Posidonia oceanica meadows, which provide an ideal bed for many species of marine life. The old municipal beach at the northern end of the Mon Repos grounds, near Anemomylos, is closed for renovation of its amenities.
