Area

Agios Stefanos

Agios Stefanos is renowned as one of the most attractive on the north-east coast. There is a small shingle beach with sunbeds and umbrellas for hire. (Please be advised that children need close supervision as the water deepens very quickly.) There are wonderful views across to the mainland and Albania. Retaining a traditional feel, this picturesque fishing village offers a good selection of upmarket waterside tavernas.

Kassiopi

Kassiopi stands at the foot of Mount Pantokrator on the north-eastern corner of Corfu and is approached from either side by scenic coast roads. It’s an established and popular tourist resort which started life as a fishing village but now offers every type of holiday facility. Many recently constructed expensive villas can be found outside the town itself. The harbour is very picturesque and the ruins on the headland date from Roman times. There are shingle and pebble bays on either side of the harbour which provide safe swimming. Eating out ranges from tavernas to sophisticated restaurants.

Kerasia

Kerasia is surrounded by olive and pine trees. It is quiet, beautiful and has one of the loveliest beaches in the north-east for swimming, with shallow water. There is a single taverna on the beach with a wooden pier.

Avlaki

Avlaki is still largely unknown except to locals. The long, white shingle and pebble beach surrounds a curving bay with clear blue water. There are a couple of tavernas serving traditional Greek cuisine.

Agni

Kouloura

Kouloura, set against a backdrop of cypress and pine trees, is a picturesque little fishing harbour, consisting of two houses, a fish taverna and the small chapel of Saint Nikolas. On its promontory stands an estate dating back to the 11th century, which is used as a holiday home by the Agnelli (Fiat Motors) family. There is a small beach.

Kalami

Kalami is a horseshoe-shaped bay surrounded by green, wooded hills. It is famous for The White House, the Corfu home of Gerald Durrell from 1936-1939. He found the beautiful bay a perfect spot to concentrate on his writing. In recent years, tourism has turned this little fishing village into one of the most popular resorts in Corfu. The shingle beach with its clear blue sea is ideal for swimming and has been awarded Blue Flag status.
