The Municipality of Thinali is located in the north of Corfu,
covering the flank of the Pantokrator
Mountain Massif as far as the sea, and comprises eight villages and 39 hamlets.
Its boundary to the north is the sea, where the beach stretches for
several kilometers from Roda
to Acharavi and Almiros,
Agios Spiridon, Apraos
and Kalamaki. It is considered to be one of the most extensive and cleanest beaches
in the Mediterranean, and in set in the scenery of exceptional natural beauty.

with shops, restaurants, bars and banks supplying all services a tourist might
