Experience North East Corfu with Us
The North East coast of Corfu is one of the most scenic pieces of coastline in Greece. Exiting the marina with the lavish morning views, we head up the coast the olive grove and cypress green covered hills of Corfu preside over a multitude of small bays, beaches, coves and seaside villages, while over to the East lies the mysterious Albania and the mountains of Epirus.
After passing the luxurious filming location of the loved show “My family and Other Animals”, with the early days sun hitting just right, we quickly reach the long pebbled beach of Barbati, where the green mountains meet the sea.
As we then cruise past Nissaki and its taverna, still belonging to the same family it did since the 60s, slowly reaching the small yet picturesque cove of Kaminaki. Continuing further up the most beautiful coastline of the island we ascend on to one of Corfu’s hidden treasures. The small chapel of St Arsenios is perched on the rocks, with some hidden caves and the clearest of waters, making it ideal perhaps for the first dip of the day, where you can make the most of the snorkeling equipment to explore the world beneath us, or enjoy some refreshments on board in this private spot.
Just around the corner is Agni, one of the most popular spots on the northern part of the island, as it is home to three of Corfu’s most well known seaside tavernas, making a perfect lunch stop with a booking in advance always in recommendation. Bays follow bays and round the next corner, we find a lovely seaside view of the village Kalami, the area where the treasures Lawrence Durrell once lived years ago.
Further on Kouloura, Kerasia and Agios Stefanos, collectively known to some as “Kensington-on-sea” from a British newspaper article referring to the many private villas dotted along the coast.
