Aghia Jerusalem Beach
Approximately 9.2 k from Fiscardo
Sun Beds and Umbrellas Available
Historically Interesting Church
Second Beach if Busy
Taverna Close to Beach
Close to the Villages of Agrilias and Halikeri, Aghia Jerusalem is a safe and sheltered bay, ideal for snorkeling. Shade is limited but Umbrellas are available to hire. There is also a second beach just a little further around the cove.
Aghia Jersulem is about 10 minutes from Fiscardo by car. Take the main road from Fiscardo towards Argosotoli, pass through Antipata and turn right immediately upon reaching Magganos. The turning is opposite the first shop on your left. Take the first right and stay on this road which leads you down to a crossroads. Aghia Jerusalem is clearly signposted from here.

The name of the beach is taken from the name of the ancient stone church of Saint Jerusalem.
Although not historically verified, one legend suggests that the church was built by crusaders en-route to the holy land.
Another version, is that the church was built by Robert Guiscard, who’s name was given to Fiscardo.
Guiscard thought the water from the nearby well would cure his illness.
Sun beds and umbrellas are available on the main beach.
The area covered by the organised part of the beach is less than half the area of the beach. Therefore, if you do not wish to take advantage of these facilities there is still plenty of available space.
During high season, some of the Fiscardo based fishing boats find the harbour too busy and so use Aghia Jerusalem as a temporary base.
There is a second beach just a few yards further on from the main beach. If you arrive later in the day you will find the sun stays on this beach a little longer.
There is an excellent restaurant just behind the beach.
