One of the best known attractions of Corfu, this village has developed along a hilly road by the edge of the mountain, revealing 5 magic bays along the way. The dramatic cliffs mostly covered by cypresses and olive trees are stunning. Two of the most impressive attractions of the island are only a few minutes away, Angelokastro and Paleokastritsa’s monastery.
This location is best suited to people who wish to walk or explore some of the most wonderful parts of the island. This is a well organized resort so you can do a variety of things such as watersports & boat trips. The resort will offer you mixed nightlife, ranging from romantic quiet bars on the water’s edge to disco bars open until the early hours.
The mountainous nature of the village offers a breathtaking view. The area gets crowded with day-trippers, especially in July & August.

Things have changed quite a bit from when Lawrence Durrell experienced Kalami, but you will still find a lot of inspiration in this wonderful pebbly cove. Regardless to its development of the recent years, Kalami remains one of the most sought after and picturesque resorts in Corfu. Here you can relax while other landmark areas of the island are only a stone’s throw away. Hire your own boat and wonder in the little coves around; or head by boat to fish restaurants in villages nearby and Corfu Town.
This is a quiet village on the North of the island, which is currently under preservation for its cultural & architectural heritage from Venetian times. The village is small and offers no facilities apart from one taverna. It is ideal for complete rest, while it gives away its secret: Longas Beach, one of the most striking sunset beaches on the island.
Strong currents may make this beach unsuitable for a swim, especially during bad weather. Also this beach has sharp steps down to the water without holding rails, so this makes it more difficult.
Peroulades is an excellent point from where you can explore the north of the island. You can combine the resort with Corfu Town.
