Kassiopi is the largest village located on Corfu’s north-eastern coast, about 35 km north of the town of Corfu. It is a lively picturesque village that blends old and new, with one amazing background of Mount Pantokrator and its nestling of olive groves and vines. Once a sleepy fishing village, Kassiopi has emerged as an attractive resort that still manages to keep plenty of its original charm. Traditional narrow streets, a magnificent Byzantine fortress, lovely fresh seafood tavernas and an unspoiled harbor filled with little fishing boats coexist in harmony with hip bars, restaurants serving various international dishes (e.g. Mexican, Chinese and Italian) and modern facilities offering water-skiing, horse-riding, paragliding and diving services.
The beautiful beaches at Kassiopi are small & rocky/pebbly and are hidden away around the headland in stunning secluded spots, such as Bataria beach. There are larger beaches further north such as Kalamionas and Imerolia with various water sports on offer in addition to plenty other beaches at a distance less than 10 km far from Kassiopi.
In contrast to most other touristic areas in Corfu, modern renovated apartments and luxurious villas are mostly offered in Kassiopi making this area ideal for people who seek privacy while enjoying the views over crystal-clear waters and dense hillside greenery.
